Artek: Het ideale vakantiekamp
SC 6.9/10 

Year: 2002
Country: Netherlands
Section: documentary
Tags: boy, girl, summer camp, swimming
Description: Since its foundation in 1925, the exclusive Ukrainian youth camp Artek only accepted the best Pioneers (Soviet boy scouts). In 1991, the Soviet Union disintegrated, but on the face of it much has remained the same in Artek: the youngsters still come from former Soviet republics like Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Georgia, and are still addressed moralistically by the leadership. Every child still gets a scarf, too, but now it is blue instead of red. But the youngsters have definitely changed. The meanwhile privatised Artek no longer exclusively takes in excelling pupils, but also orphans. Instead of massive morning exercises, the children now receive driving lessons and dental care. And the ever-smiling children in the infectious archive footage are offset by the interviews with wavering present-day kids, who had expected more from the camp.
