A Ukrainian Summer
Supplement to The Ukrainian Weekly, May 7, 2000
Here it is: May, again. Therefore, we've produced our fourth annual seasonal supplement titled "A Ukrainian Summer," offering suggestions for camps, studies, travels, cultural programs, sports and just plain fun.
Our lead stories cover two major events of summer 2000: the Ukrainian Diaspora Olympiad to be held in July in the Philadelphia area, and Jamboree 2000, to take place in August in the Adirondacks of New York state, organized to mark the 50th anniversary of Plast Ukrainian Scouting Organization in the U.S.
In this special supplement we also focus attention on religious events marking the Jubilee Year 2000, time-tested summer camps and favorite summer resorts, as well as fun-filled festivals north, south, east and west.
For those more cerebrally inclined there are course of all types - just check out the offerings of the Sheptytsky Institute, Manor College, Harvard University and the University of Manitoba. You can learn to play the Ukrainian national instrument, the bandura, or dance Ukrainian folk dances, from the ever-popular Hopak to more esoteric numbers.
If you're traveling to Canada, you can find out how to take a self-guided tour of Lamont County in Alberta - "the church capital of North America." There is plenty to do also in Ukraine: you can stop by an exhibit of art works by Andy Warhol in Kyiv, or explore the historic city of Kamianets-Podilskyi.
So, enjoy this issue in preparing for your Ukrainian Summer.
