Intern.Gogakou Chıldren Folk Camp

In a small village of Kassandra, we have created "Once upon a time", with much artistic feeling and love for children and man, tradition, nature and life... "Once upon a time... Means holidays and relaxation! Entertainment and action! Daring and adventure! A live fairytale-like reality...

In a ravine where holly, myrtles, arbutuses rove their braches. At a place where nightingales compose their musical symphonies In a valley whose boundaries are set by pine clad mountainsides.
Near the unique natural spring of Kassandra "Patatlaka", where gurgling waters spring from the heart of the mountain...
...at a place with a climate that can be compared to no other. At New Skioni, located at the peninsula of Kassandra in the prefecture of Halkidiki, only 1 km from the northeastern part of the picturesque village. All tradition gathered in this valley which seems as if untouched by time; however you will discover that time here is never enough if you want to see everything.

With the initiative of Dimitra Papachristodoulou - Gogakou, educator by profession, who wanted to give sound principles to her children - pupils and dreamt of a live folklore workshop, we created "Once upon a time..." with much artistic feeling and love for children and man, tradition nature and life.
Children are approximately the same age, forming small groups with an older person us their team leader, stay in small modern houses.
Experienced educators and trainers have prepared special programs concerning entertainment, creative and athletic activities.
Special care to the health of children, offered 24 hours a day by a doctor or a nurse.
Because technology has made man arrogant and egocentric Because we think that environmental education does not work when man face environment authoritatively. Because the "Nature-Animals-Man" triptych must retain a balance
Because man can never realize the fact that man and environment are interdependent by means of words but by experience and actions. This is the reason why we created "Once upon a time"
At its live folklore workshops you will see nature, man, animals in an interdependent harmonic and balanced relationship.
At "Once upon a time" you will see no dead exhibition areas.
You will experience live tradition, a fairytale-like reality, a game of tradition and life, of nature, man, animals, in as ideal relationship.

SIVO 28th International Folklore Festival

The festival takes place every year during the 31st week, starting on Wednesday and up to and including Sunday. In 2012 (28th edition) from August 1 - August 5.
Groups are expected to arrive on Tuesday before and leave on Monday after the festival. Up to 15 foreign groups and 4 Dutch groups can participate.

The guests will stay with host families in Odoorn and surrounding villages. It is a festival in the open air; groups will dance on six stages situated in the 'dance area'.

Programme: There are six dance sessionssin which all the groups perform. There are extra shows in the Gala shows and the extra dance sessions, ‘the last rounds’. The festival is opened and closed with a swinging parade of all the participating groups.

On average some 35,000 people come to see the different shows of the groups. During the weekend there is an international folkloristic market in which the foreign groups and Dutch hobbyists can participate.

During the festival the members of the groups have every chance to meet each other. At the 'Ball of the Nations' they have a very special chance to do so. SIVO can organize the yearly festival due to the dedication and enthusiasm of hundreds of host families and hundreds of workers, all volunteers.

The festival is a marvellous big event for the members of the participating groups who can make music, sing and dance to their hearts' content and for the audience who can enjoy this. In an atmosphere of peace and friendship they have every chance to achieve the IOV-motto: "We build bridges from nation to nation, from man to man".

SIVO is a member of IOV (the International Organization of Folk Arts, settled in Mödling, Austria) and of CIOFF (The International Council of Organizations of Folklore Festivals and Folk Art)
