Carnival!

A new tradition was recently born at Carnival! CYM's Ellenville, New York oselya -- a Ukrainian children's carnival unmatched by any in recent memory! As the sun peeked through the clouds on a Saturday afternoon in July, several hundred children gathered to play games, win prizes, get wet and enjoy the summer weather. Among them were campers enjoying this year's Sumenyata camp and older children attneding Vykhovno-Vidpochynkovyj camp.

Spread over a couple of acres on oselya's sprawling main lawn, this year's carnival offered something for everyone -- clowns, balloons, face and body painting by young Ukrainian artists, towering caterpillar tunnels and caverns filled with streaming balls, fishing, frisbee throwing and other arcade games, and what may have proved to be the most popular attraction -- a huge water slide which kids of all ages couldn't get enough of.

Not that "Mokra Kurka" didn't get its share of visitors... what camper could resist a chance to dunk their camp's Komendant into the tank by a well aimed throw at the bullseye?
