Maksatics Camp is a unique film making project in Russia and the UK for children ages 8-16. It is a small company giving huge opportunities. The whole project enables Russian-speaking children from all over the world gain experience of Western culture and explore their creativity and English speakers to further their understanding of Russian culture and tradition.
Our mission is to educate and entertain children through the art of amateur film making. Their innate ability to express themselves is facilitated by a variety of creative techniques.
We use classical films and literature to stimulate the young people to ask questions about life and their dreams. In their short stay at the camp they learn a great deal and enjoy sharing their skills in a purposefully safe and caring situation. They learn about themselves, other people and the environment and develop a harmonious sense of community and friendships for life. As a result of such co-operation the young people can share videos and experiences with their classmates in different countries.
Our professional team increasingly convinced that what will be of most value to today’s children, in the workplace and the lives of tomorrow, are the things that make us uniquely human. . We always creat a new program to motivate and encourage yound generation to develop their own Creativity, communication, collaboration, imagination and innovation.
The power to dream dreams and imagine possibilities; the skill to present a convincing case to others and persuade them to share the vision; and the ability to create teams and work collaboratively in order to turn those dreams into realities which will further shape the future of the world for the better.

Why is our program unique?
First of all, lack of communication hierarchy. There are no bosses and subordinates, children and adults. We are a single unit. Except adults take responsibility for children.
At second, children make films themselves. Every session of filmmaking is a different all the time, because it depends on participants, topics of stories children told and their experience. Shooting process is a game we all have agreed to play.
At third, independent of expressions and freedom of thoughts. A full immersion in the creative process allow children easily express their desire, thoughts, learn how to be free to speak, listen, create and tell stories to the friends.
At fourth, we offer a balanced set of educational and entertaining activities during the camp session. Our program consist of the art, filmmaking, sport and team building activities. Apart from acting, shooting, making a stage performances children can enjoy a country side, playing games and communicating with new international friends.
