The 2021 Arts and Crafts Summer Program at Cape Cod Academy will be in-person, socially distant, and held five days a week from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Each session is scheduled for two weeks (a one-week option is available). There will be creative play taking place in the art room as well as time spent outside in fun, shady spaces. The arts & crafts experience is designed to keep campers engaged and curious about the making and creating of art while finding inspiration from one another.
The Arts & Crafts Summer Program will be a unique opportunity for kids to grow, explore, imagine, and expand their love of arts and crafts. Weekly and bi-weekly themes will provide them with opportunities to explore hands-on projects that allow for experimentation with the concepts, techniques, and supplies. We will spend the mornings together in the large art room or outside in the outdoor studio. Campers will transition outside during mid-morning to enjoy a snack (please bring from home), along with some playtime and exercise. Campers will return to the classroom until pick-up at noon.
Half-day (9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.): $380.00 per two-week session or $190 for one-week session(The price includes all art supplies.)
Session I: Arts and Nature Camp
June 28 – July 2
July 5 – July 9
Campers will enjoy exploring Cape Cod Academy’s 46-acre campus and finding natural objects to incorporate into a variety of creative art projects, such as leaf printing, embellishing stones, animal sculptures, clay impression making, observational drawings, sun prints, organic three-dimensional pictures, nature dioramas, and landscape paintings. They will also have the opportunity to plant beautiful flowers to enjoy all summer.
Session II: Paper, As an Artistic Medium Camp
July 26 – July 30
August 2 – August 6
During this two-week session, campers will sculpt with paper, stitch on paper, make paper, carve and build with paper, and enjoy making books, rolled beads, cards, prints, mobiles, and so much more. This camp is suited for all levels of creators and makers.
Waterfront – Camp Burgess & Hayward
Sharing sides of sparkling Spectacle pond, Camp Burgess & Camp Hayward have their own waterfronts for fun in the sun.
Fun and games with the cabin or in their interest group. Whether it is playing dock ball, sharks and minnows or water aerobics, everyone loves spending time in Spectacle pond. The swimming interest group finishes their week with a swim across to the other camp in the Spectacle Challenge. Beach Party, our free swim time, happens every afternoon to help cool off from the summer sun.
A camp classic, we have both regular canoes and a large “war” canoe to hold an entire cabin. Campers can chose canoeing as their morning activity or try it out with their cabin. Learning basic strokes and rescues is fun with different games and races. Cabins can also join up with other boating activities to play large games of “capture the lifejacket” or “Sink the Swiss!”
A great sport and exploration activity. Campers learn the strokes and basic concepts of kayaking through fun, interactive games. Obstacle courses and relay races help practice skills in a fun way. Campers will explore the whole of Spectacle Pond including the swamp!
Sailing teaches campers to tack and jibe across the pond in a range of boats for all abilities. Some instruction and teaching takes place on the beach before campers set out on the Pond.
Cabins can try paddleboarding or stand up paddleboarding where they can play games, explore the swamp or race to the island. Trying to “walk the plank” or “simon says” are some paddleboard favorites. In the windsurfing interest group, campers can also challenge themselves to surf the wind, learning how to tack across the pond.
WATER TRAMPOLINE & PONTOON JUMPING
A great cabin activity for any time of the day. Take the plunge with the whole cabin or have a “best jump” contest. Great to have a cabin chat in a spontaneous place or just goof around on.

Winter Juniors Qualifier Tessa Mock Verbally Commits to Pitt
Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination.
Tessa Mock from Marion, Massachusetts has made a verbal commitment to swim for the University of Pittsburgh in the class of 2025.
“I’m very happy to announce my verbal commitment to the University of Pittsburgh! Thank you to my family, friends, trainers, and coaches at CCSC who have helped me athletically and academically. I chose Pitt because of the outstanding athletics and exceptional academics. I’m very excited to be a part of the team! h3P!”
Mock, who will be a senior at Tabor Academy this fall, swims for Cape Cod Swim Club. Last month, she was awarded the club’s 2020 Senior Group Performance Award (in a socially-distanced ceremony in front of her house). “Tessa is a NE Age Group Champion, a NE Senior Medalist, and a Junior National Qualifier. Her 500 FR at 4:55.51, her 1000 FR at 9:59.87, and her 1650 FR at 16:43.87 make her one of the best high school distance swimmers in the country.
Mock holds Winter Juniors standards in the 1000 free and 1650 free and a Futures cut in the 400m free. She competed at 2019 Winter Juniors East in the 500 and 1650 and dropped 13.5 seconds in the latter to come in 13th with 16:43.87. The following week she notched PBs in the 200/500/1000 free and 400 IM at New England Senior Short Course Championships. At Geneva Futures last summer, she placed 5th in the 1500 free (17:21.70), 15th in the 800 free (9:07.52), and 13th in the 400 free (4:27.42). She went best times in all those events, plus the 100/200 free and 200 IM, at 2019 New England Long Course Senior Championships.
Top SCY times:
- 1650 free – 16:43.87
- 1000 free – 9:59.87
- 500 free – 4:55.51
- 200 free – 1:53.55
- 400 IM – 4:33.18
Mock will join Avery McFaddin and Mia Sunseri on the Panthers’ roster in 2021. The Pitt distance group will be in rebuilding mode after the graduation of freestylers Sarah Giamber and Madelyn Shaffer. She will overlap with Madison Nalls (4:49.73), Dakota Elliott (4:51.79), and Lauren Kelly (4:56.74).

Sports and recreation camp “Tolstoy Cape”
The camp territory is 12 hectares of one of the most beautiful forest-park zones in Gelendzhik. Pitsunda pine, blue spruce, Lebanese cedars, cypresses, thujas and plane trees decorate the camp territory, create a favorable microclimate for children on vacation.
Rest in the camp is organized in four shifts of 21 days – during the summer season more than 2500 people rest and recover here. In the improvement of children, the unique natural resources of the Gelendzhik resort are primarily used.
On the territory there is a health building with the following services: a speleo chamber (salt cave), a physiotherapy room (inhaler), a massage room with professional equipment for the treatment and prevention of spinal diseases, a phytobar. Each child undergoes a course of wellness procedures.
In addition, various excursions are organized for children: boat trips, visits to the Safari Park, the theme park “Old Town” and “Roman Empire”, a dolphinarium, an aquarium, water parks, etc.p.
Leisure in the camp is a full-fledged activity, equal to everyone else. At the same time, the activities are closely related to the implementation of the health, educational and developmental tasks of the shift program. The forms of events are varied: thematic holidays, creative competitive games, thematic evenings and concerts, discos, quizzes, various circles, exhibitions of drawings and products of decorative and applied art, etc.
There are many hobby groups for creative children where children make gifts with their own hands for friends, family and friends: a picture made of wool or sea stones, learn to sculpt pottery, burn wood, prepare a concert number for a performance.And this is only a small part of creative activities for children! In total, up to 15 hobby groups work per shift.
Each shift begins with the opening of the “Minor Olympic Games”. Competitions last throughout the entire shift, and at the closing of the “Small Olympic Games” a solemn rewarding of the best squads and young athletes takes place.
The camp has its own large beach (2.4 hectares), located 50 meters away.
The territory is guarded by employees of a security company, video surveillance systems are monitored, access control has been introduced
The camp has all the conditions for playing sports and holding sports camps:
– football field,
– basketball court,
– volleyball court,
– rubber-covered tennis and badminton courts,
– climbing wall,
– a large rope park.
– bike park with a total length of 0.85 km with two playgrounds,
– a sandy court for playing beach volleyball, handball.
– playgrounds with exercise equipment and playgrounds.
Mikhail Shelkov – #LIFE_INCAMP
Mikhail Shelkov is in charge of two program camps at once. He also writes books, plays role-playing games and is generally a very versatile person! You can see this for yourself by visiting his camps, or by reading his interview for our blog.
– Mikhail, tell us about your projects!
– Children’s fantasy camp “Stormwind” and children’s music camp “Cape Rock”. For a start – about the second. It is easier to understand, since it is not the only camp of this kind in Russia, although we are the discoverers of this direction. Children musicians who love rock music gather around teachers, organize into groups and play rock. Honestly, the camp has changed a lot in 8 years. Just like the attitude towards rock music has changed in the country and in the world. Alas, rock is not in trend today. The camp has its fans, but … now, say, not on the wave. “Stormwind” is a separate world. Here we have combined the camp and the role-playing movement. At the same time, they made the maximum immersion in fantastic universes for children. Into a fairy tale. When a child arrives at the camp, he chooses a role name for himself, receives entourage clothes, weapons, and then plays the role that he got. The guys are accompanied by counselors who follow the child’s life and the master – game technicians who lead the squads through the game, play with them.
– What is the most vivid childhood memory?
-Can’t remember or name anything specific. From the end of the eighties I remembered the eternal empty counters, hordes of evil people and boundless rudeness, it was postponed. And the “dashing 90s” were a golden childhood, I will say, quite happy. We lived in short supply, but the brightness poured into the shelves, the TVs were enough. It was a time when I had no idea that the English language taught at school would come in handy in my life. Therefore, mass events like the 850th anniversary of Moscow or visiting attractions in Gorky Park were perceived as – Wow! Although, in comparison with entertainment for modern children, this is about nothing.But with the camps in childhood did not work out, I felt their charm in adolescence.
– If you could only have five things, which would you choose?
-If you answer the question in the context of “5 things that you would take with you to a desert island”:
- Pen or pencil
- Large notebook
- Matches, a lighter or something that sets fire to
- Sword (but this is a romantic image, because something more practical, like a machete)
- Warm pair of shoes
– Tell us about your favorite book.Why did you choose her?
-I will put Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings” in the first place. It’s like an ideal book. About the path, duty, friendship. With examples of heroes to look up to. However, it is very, very far from reality.
From the same fantasy genre I really like Game of Thrones. The series turned out to be good, but too pop, populist, for the viewer. An interesting thing is done from book to book. At first, it seems that there is a clear division into positive and negative heroes, but by the third or fourth book, there is no division at all, each hero has his own truth, which he defends.And the actions of supposedly good characters do not always bring a positive effect on society.
In my student years, I read a lot of Russian classics (for I did not read at all at school). I reread all of Dostoevsky and was surprised how his novels are perceived differently at different ages. Favorite was “Demons”, which also lacks goodies.
Previously, once or twice a year I re-read Yesenin’s complete collection, but recently I rarely do this and generally cooled down to poetry.
– How old do you feel, and why?
– Not at all, honestly.I don’t even celebrate birthdays and don’t immediately answer how old I am. I remember the year of birth – I immediately calculate it. When you work in a young team, you feel comfortable with guys 18-20 years old. There are situations when you have to remember that you have 13 years of experience behind you and put it into practice.
– What skill would you like to learn and why?
– Since the age of 14 I have been trying to master the guitar. Unsuccessfully! And that’s all, there is no inclination.(Camp “Cape Rock” as a kind of outlet, to recoup fate)
In general, I am ready to accept any new and interesting with a bang. Last winter I learned how to snowboard for the first time. Recently I tried to fly on an airplane simulator. They will offer something interesting – I will willingly undertake to try myself.
– Was there an incident in your camp after which you wanted to give up everything and go into hermits? Tell us about it!
– No, it wasn’t. I love life and movement too much to become a hermit.I project a couple of options when hypothetically possible, but these options are the real extreme.
-If there was an urgent need, would you go to the detachment as a leader now?
-And I do it! Regularly. 1 – 3 shifts per summer. Not a counselor, a master game technician for a detachment, but this is an analogue. I am the owner of the camp, but in this position I report to the senior counselor, shift supervisor and camp director.
– What legislation in the field of recreation and health improvement would you pass if you became the Minister of Education?
-If I became the Minister of Education, then first of all I would take up education itself.I would have canceled a bunch of useless subjects in schools. Physical education or work would be replaced by sections and circles, mandatory, but by choice from the list. I would cut down on mathematics, which 90-99% of students do not need in life, starting with differential equations, and would make the most of the most important lessons – life safety, which is not taken seriously. At the institutes, I would have canceled two-thirds of the lectures and replaced them with practice.
And about the sphere of recreation and health improvement. Firstly, it seems to me that this sphere should have its own minister.And secondly, first of all, I would accept the provision on the camps. It is now accepted to consider the position of 1990 to be correct, that is, the position of the state, which no longer exists. In my position there would be a point where private camps would be freed from enslaving demands. It is up to the client to choose a private camp, check its documentation and live according to its charter or not.
– If you had not become the director of the camp, who would you be?
-Before opening my camp, I worked as a layout designer for 8 years.Now I pay a little less attention to the camp. I write fantasy books, make board games. I think that there is no limit and I will become “someone else”
– If you were writing a book about your life, what line would it start from / what would it be called?
-Yes, I’ve already invented the name. “The Great Silk Road”. With an emphasis on the second syllable in the word Silk.
– Who is a hero for you? As a child, did you have a hero you wanted to be like? Did you manage to get closer to the ideal?
– In part, I have already raised this issue.I will say right away, no – there is no ideal. There are book heroes, heroes from television screens. In childhood, there were many such on-screen characters, all of them are terribly good. Now even some kind of feedback is gone. There are some historical figures that I admire. But history is a subjective science. And I also subjectively perceive these individuals, they could be completely different than in my understanding. But if you have an article in honor of men, I will name the physical instructor of our camp Sergei Petrovich, truly a people’s idol. The number of his mini-exploits tends to five hundred, and all the men in our camp keep up with him.
– Defender of the Fatherland Day is coming soon. How do you feel about this holiday? What do you think is the best gift for the camp director on February 23rd?
– I am ambiguous. Congratulations – I accept congratulations, do not congratulate – well, okay. Firstly, the very ambiguity of this holiday comes from the fact that initially February 23 is the day of the creation of the Red Army. Secondly, there is no clarity as from March 8, when it is generally believed that this is a holiday for all women.Half of them immediately thinks that this is the Day of the Defender of the Fatherland, others – that the day of all men. I didn’t serve in the army, but I didn’t cut it on purpose either. I agree that it is possible to “defend the Fatherland” in different ways and at different frontiers. But I won’t wait for special gifts. It is much more fun when gifts are given just like that, and not in honor of something.

Fantastic holidays in “Friendship.ru” – #LIFE_INCAMP
On July 14, 2015, our team was invited by one of the leaders of the independent rating of children’s camps on the website incamp . ru – Druzhite.ru camp. For one day we plunged into the fabulous atmosphere of the “Stormwind” role-playing session.Together with the children, we took part in an expedition to the dungeons, battles with monsters, the Tournament of Heroes and a real storming of the fortress. All the details are in our report.
The Druzhite.ru company has been organizing various thematic camps in the Moscow region for several years. Now the company has 3 main directions: “Stormgrad”, “Cape of Rock” and “Animagia”. In autumn, winter and spring, they are held simultaneously at the same base, and in the summer, each has a separate shift. They have common living conditions and principles of organization, but the program and entertainment are radically different.
- Animagia is a dream camp for anime fans aged 7 to 17.
Every day in the camp there are exciting classes in the studios: manga, computer animation, audio and video processing, cosplay, costume making, theatrical performance of scenes.
Children will be deeply immersed in Japanese traditional culture: learning the Japanese language, customs and rituals, martial arts, master classes in sushi making, a tea ceremony and Japanese calligraphy lessons.
In addition, J-rock and J-pop karaoke, themed discos, a tournament of oriental fighting games and a performance by a professional team of cosplayers are organized for children.
If your child cannot live a day without a new anime series, he is able to express any mood with the word “Nya!” and scribbles for hours on a sewing machine, a ticket to Animagia will be an ideal gift for him. Here he will find friends and possibly create his own cosplay team!The battle is in full swing!
- “Cape Rock” – a session for teenagers 10-17 years old – lovers of rock and good music.
Does your child adore rock music, drive the neighbors crazy with playing the bass guitar and know all the hits of the Queen by heart? Cape Rock was created especially for him. Here he will try on the role of a beginner rock musician with all its tasks: to create a group, write a hit, organize rehearsals, etc.
The program includes: vocals, musical notation, sound engineering, acoustic guitar, drums, keyboards, bass and electric guitar lessons taught by professional teachers and musicians.
The guys have constant access to musical instruments, sound and recording equipment. At any time, the child can compose and record a melody or a ready-made hit. Throughout the shift, thematic concerts are held, at which teenagers demonstrate all the skills they have acquired.
One of the main advantages of the camp is the opportunity to find like-minded people, assemble a full-fledged group and perform with it in front of the audience. Over the history of the camp, more than one group has formed and some of them continue to perform to this day.
In addition, the program includes seminars on the promotion of the group, the image of performers, trainings for confident performance on stage, lectures on the history of music and meetings with popular rockers!High Elves from the universe of Middle-earth
- Stormwind is a program for children from 6 to 17 years old who are fond of fantasy and role-playing games.
Each shift in Stormwind is a big role-playing game. Staying in a camp can be compared to the adventures of a character in a fantasy book series or a computer RPG.On the first day, the child is informed that he has entered the fabulous world of Elinor, Warriors of Light or Middle-earth (depending on the shift), the history of the world is told in detail, key events, races and laws are described.
For example, events in the Elinor universe unfold in the vast Valley of the Ancestors, where the First Race lived for a very, very long time. At the end of the First Age, the First Race reached such a level of development that it left the material world, enclosing all knowledge and magic in the Stone, which stood in the center of the Valley.The stone became the main artifact and source of power in the Valley of the Ancestors.
The world of Elinor was now inhabited by eight small races, each of which has a number of advantages and disadvantages: some are strong and hardy, the second are cunning and dexterous, others are gifted with magical abilities, etc. They wage wars and alliances, trade and engage in politics, fight monsters and descend into mysterious dungeons, and also live the ordinary life of a fantasy dweller.The siege of the fortress
Having arrived at the shift, the teenager chooses a role-playing name, race, short biography and receives a role-playing costume in the colors of the race, i.e.That is, it fully enters the world. Everyone starts the game on an equal footing: approximately the same number of hit points (there are racial characteristics), power points and the lack of developed individual skills. The fate of the character is determined by the actions of the child himself: if he spends time and makes durable leather armor, the level of protection will improve, meditation and the study of spells will increase the magical potential, and the skill of using a sword will increase the power of attack.
Children are provided with a wide range of possibilities to customize characters:
- sewing workshop (the ability to sew a historical dress or costume)
- leather workshop (making leather armor and jewelry)
- fencing with tambara and safety swords
- shooting and making bow and arrow
- Martial Arts
- Knife Throwing
Workshops are held every day in the morning.The guys are not limited in their choice and can move freely between them.Sewing workshop
After the workshop, the role-play begins, i.e. the time when combat interactions, storming the fortress, expeditions to the dungeons, etc. are allowed. It is in it that the main events of the game take place. The inhabitants of the base seem to be transported to an online game in which crowds of children rush one after another, fight, act as heroes, cast spells and conclude peace agreements.
Role-based interaction takes place under the close supervision of the counselors and the camp leadership.All employees combine two roles: real and fantastic. At the start of the game, they dress up in role-playing costumes and turn into kings, princesses, archmages and omnipotent demigods. In this way, they help the plot of the game move forward, influence key events and, of course, monitor safety and compliance with the rules.
After the end of the role-playing time, the game stops and freezes until the next day, when it will resume from the same moment.
The camp is located on the territory of the recreation center “Ozerny” in the Ruzsky district of the Moscow region. The territory is fenced and carefully guarded. The camp occupies the entire base – there are no outside adults or other camps on it. Children feel completely free.
There are 3 two-storey residential buildings with spacious halls on the base. Children live in groups of three in separate rooms with shower and toilet. The rooms are recently renovated and equipped with the necessary furniture.
On the territory there is a large football field and a picturesque lake with a swimming pool.
A separate building is reserved for the dining room. In it, the guys eat 4 times a day. The food is delicious and satisfying.The guys decide the fate of peoples
Not far from the residential buildings there is a small forest area, where the organizers have built a real fortress of logs and planks. In it, many key events of the game unfold and assaults are regularly tripled: each clan and people wants to take possession of a strategically important fortification.
3. Teaching staff
Druzhite.ru employs a real team of professionals and fans of their craft. Most of the counselors and teachers come here from year to year and have a lot of experience in interacting with children. All newcomers are carefully selected according to many criteria, the main of which is: whether a person is burning with the idea of a camp or not.
After all, counselors and employees here are not just teachers, but full-fledged participants and players, albeit endowed with additional powers.They create a fairy tale for children, in which each of them would dream of being himself, which requires real dedication and love for work and children.The teaching staff is also actively involved in the game
Druzhite.ru camps are an excellent choice for any child. Annual comeback statistics, overcrowded summer role shifts and happy children’s eyes describe their quality and merits better than any words. Some parents call the camp managers and ask, “What have you done with my child? Instead of a new gadget, he wants a ticket to your camp! “
Here they do not just entertain the child and help to have a good rest, they create a fairy tale here. In it, everyone is a hero and everyone writes their own story of adventures, exploits and victories. Have you ever dreamed of being in a place where magic, magic and everything impossible is possible? Now we know where it is …

History of “Artek”
Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin (1799 – 1837 )
Russian poet, founder of new Russian literature.Portrait of A.S. Pushkin, artist P.F. Sokolov, 1836. Pushkin’s works have been translated into almost all languages of the world. Stay in Gurzuf – from August 18 to September 5, 1820.
During his exile to the south in 1820, Pushkin lived in Gurzuf.
Alexander Pushkin was an excellent rider. He made horseback riding along a narrow winding road to the Artek tract, where he admired the surrounding landscapes.
Not afraid of the midday heat, he more than once climbed to the top of Ayu-Dag, from here Pushkin saw our land as a “happy land”, where everything is illuminated by the “light luxury of nature.”
For the first time, the idea “to erect a touching, national monument to the poet, for which all of Russia, having lost it, will be grateful to the generous builder” was expressed on January 29, 1837 by V.A. Zhukovsky in a rough note to Nicholas I. But in this case it was not about the monument, but only about the redemption from debts and turning into a monument to A.S. Pushkin of the village of Mikhailovskoye.
Here is what the writer I. Novikov tells in his novel “Pushkin in Exile”:
“… Jumping across a small river, Pushkin found himself completely in view of Ayu-Dag.The area was completely deserted. It seemed that she would stay forever this way. All the way we met only two elderly lumberjacks, teeth flashing in a smile. However, one of them had a gun over his shoulder.
– Are you hunting?
He just waved his hand.
– What is the name of this land?
– Artek, – and, flashing his teeth, smiling, added
– but in Russian, like a quail.
Pushkin really liked this ingenuous nickname. ”
For the first time, the idea “to erect a touching, national monument to the poet, for which all of Russia, having lost it, will be grateful to the generous builder” was expressed on January 29, 1837 by V.A. Zhukovsky in a rough note to Nicholas I. But in this case it was not about the monument, but only about the redemption from debts and turning into a monument to A.S. Pushkin of the village of Mikhailovskoye.
At the official level, the situation with the perpetuation of the name of A.S. Pushkin began to change after the first in Russia monument to the poet by the outstanding sculptor A.M. Opekushin (in Soviet times, moved to Strastnaya, now Pushkin Square).
After that, in many cities of Russia, where the poet was, they began to celebrate the memorial sites associated with his name. Apparently at the same time the toponyms “Pushkin Rock” and “Pushkin Grotto” appeared.
Cape Pushkin (Java)
Formed as a result of the wave-breaking activity of the sea.The height of the cape is 35 meters above sea level. At the end of the 19th century, an observation deck in the form of a fortress tower was built on the cape. Cape Pushkin is notable for two caves-grottoes, which can only be accessed from the sea. One of the grottoes is named after Pushkin. By its appearance, it resembles an outlandish temple with majestic columns. Its beauty and clarity of water make an extraordinary impression.
Bas-relief by A.S. Pushkin
Photo of 1975Opened on June 6, 1948 to mark the 149th anniversary of the poet’s birth. Authors of the project: Artek girls Nadya Belova, Tamara Safonova and Vyacheslav Ivanovich Asyamolov. Pushkin’s bas-relief was cast on the Skillful Hands circle by the girls of the Suuk-Su children’s camp (from June 1945 to April 1954 only girls rested in the Suuk-Su camp) with the head of the circle V.I. Asyamolov. There was a poet’s bas-relief on a white marble board. There is currently no bas-relief.
Photo 1955Opened on June 6, 1948 to mark the 149th anniversary of the birth of A.S. Pushkin Author: Vyacheslav Ivanovich Asyamolov, head of the Skillful Hands circle. The board was installed at the top of the wall facing the visitors.
The board was made of white marble and embedded in the wall. The text with the lines of the poem “To the Sea” was engraved on the board:
“Farewell, free element!
For the last time in front of me
You roll blue waves
And you shine with proud beauty. “
The letters of the inscription were covered with bronze paint.
No board at this time.
Fountain A.S. Pushkin
Installed on June 6, 1949, to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the birth of A.S. Pushkin. The author of the project is unknown. The pool bowl was round. The water sprinklers were located around the bowl. In the middle of the pool of the fountain there was a copy of the sculpture by A.S. Pushkin works by A.M. Opekushina. In 1958, the fountain was dismantled.Sculpture by A.S. Pushkin was moved from the 2nd camp (now the children’s camp “Azure”) and installed in the park of the 3rd camp (now the children’s camp “Cypress”).
Alexander Mikhailovich Opekushin (1838-1923)
Son of a serf. He studied at the drawing school of the Society for the Encouragement of Artists and in the sculptural workshop of D.I. Jensen in St. Petersburg. Full member of the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts (1895).
Participated in the creation (according to Mikhail Osipovich Mikeshin) of the Millennium of Russia monument in Novgorod (opened in 1862) and to Catherine II in St. Petersburg (opened in 1872).
The most significant work of Opekushin is the monument to A.S. Pushkin in Moscow (bronze, granite, opened in 1880), combining the elevation of the image with its historical concreteness and authenticity. Opekushin created monuments to Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin in St. Petersburg (opened in 1884), Karl Maksimovich Baer in Tartu (opened in 1884), Mikhail Yurievich Lermontov in Pyatigorsk (opened in 1889)
Founded in the late 40s – early 50s of the XX century.
Artist: Pavel Petrovich Bezrukov, craftsman.
On the site, Pavel Petrovich created an amazing world of children’s favorite fairy-tale characters: Little Red Riding Hood, Kolobok, heroes of Pushkin’s poem “Ruslan and Lyudmila”, fables by I.A. Krylova and others.
In the mid (late?) 50s Bezrukov took his wooden sculptures out of Artek. In 1960, he founded the open-air museum “Glade of Fairy Tales” in a forest glade at the foot of the Stavri-Kaya rock in Yalta.

Authors: students of the Ufa Oil and Gas Institute (Bashkiria, Russia).
Located behind the monument to A.S. Pushkin.
In the summer of 1985, a group of students of the Ufa Oil and Gas Institute, on their own initiative, having developed their own project for a fairytale town, began to implement it.
