Hardly in Russia can be found someone older than 30 who hasn’t been in a Soviet summer camp at least once …
First-rate pimply-faced dork… , naturally…
Hey Boris, how ’bout this… “Bite Me!”
I wanna go to camp too.
Be clear to which camp you want to go to. You don’t want to go to the camp that is 5 time zones or more to the East of Moscow.
I understand Artek in Crimea was the best, but these photographs show many camps.
Okean (Ocean) camp – one of the best (third after Artek and Orlyonok) was near Vladivostok at the Pacific shore
Does Russia have a special camp for fat, pimply-faced Brit tards such as yourself?
“Does Russia have a special camp for fats?”
No, they hadn’t
Not like today, fun in front of the computer in the summer
Heck, I would gladly go for two weeks.
scary; the food was good though; plus what is an alternative[?];
Sturdy young women!!
You belive that?! This is famous soviet propaganda: everything what you see is a lie :/
My cousins in Poland went to some, and they had a great time.
Where are the lies you see?
Will someone please tell me more that two differences between Pioneers and Hitlerjungend?
1. The language. 2. The name of the supreme leader.
3. Color of uniforms
One hypothetically set up for the liberation of working class people, the other for the extermination of all alleged “sub-human” races (like Jews, Gypsies, Slavonic, and any one who disagrees with the “superior” Germanic leaders). Read your history, the Nazi ideology is the most horrible example of ignorant savagery in human history.
4. Unlike US boy scouts they were not molested by pedophiles.
Yup, you won’t see shots like #37- the topless young girls, anymore, it’d be called kiddie porn. Some of those young ladies have just reached puberty and it shows.
Anyone read “Casino Moscow”? There’s a great chapter in there which takes place at a former Soviet summer camp, involving some idealistic young university graduates fresh from Western business schools, trying to teach Western-style economics to a bunch of lawless kids of all ages. Absolutely hilarious results!
Water colored propaganda. Nostalgic, but nostalgic in the very old Soviet cold-war “faker” way. I’m not buying it, and anyone with half a brain here ‘aint either. LOLZ toolz!
Ivana Benderova, it is clear here that no1 with half a brain is buying ur services, so stop whining here.
My dear Kirov (fake or real – it does not matter)… My “services,” as you say, are not for sale to any god or government. My comments are mine alone. So I will buy you a big steaming cup of STFU. Oh, and, you’re welcome, ‘tard.
Hitlerjugend – organization whos sole purpouse was 2 brainwash youth so that they would be blindly loyal 2 der fuhrer and a totalitarian regime.
The piooners – an organization which had 2 purpouses:
1. giving yout healthy values (being active, learning stuff etc)
2. being semi-brainwashed into being MARXISTS.
hmmmm… there is no difference and the best part is – you know it!
Both of these youth organizations required absolute subordinance and following the propaganda.
What was different was the color of their shirts.
It’s called the Boy Scouts.
As much as I hate to admit it, USSR did have these camps and they were very nice. This is not propaganda. Artek in Crimea was one of the really nice ones, reserved for offspring of commie leadership in socialist wonderland.
I remember a girl who, during 80s, was awarded a stay in Artek after she won a competition in poetry recitation organized by local organization of pro-Soviet collaborators. When she returned, she was deeply shocked by concentration camp-like drill and tragic quality of food.
NOBODY WAS FAT! EVERYBODY WAS SLIM AND FIT!
the kids that went to these camps are adults now and these photos are memories of their childhood….probably their happiest times.
thanks for the sharing
interesting, like it very much…
Socialbot saves me a lot of time and money with my social bookmarking. I would recommend it to anybody.
In the Soviet education the girl were brought up together with boys. This essential distinction nazi formation (separate education).
STALIN WAS A GREATE LEADER!
I am from India and never been to any of these camps. But I have read an account of a girl from my place who had spent a summer in Artek camp and it was a really nice experience for her. So I don’t think all was propaganda.
Great website you have here, wondering if you developed it yourself or has it been professionally created? Many thanks!
Photo 8 from the top, the girl in the center, looks like my profile when I was a little girl. Russians are so cool.
Hi guys, I agree with Sergey, definitely Ocean camp in Vladivostok is one of the best camp so far. I was there in 1985
(in Vietnamese group),that was a great time with great Russian friends. I wish coming back Okean to visit another day.
