The latest developments of calorimeters using scintillators as active medium for detectors at the ILC are reviewed. We mention those having already a prototype that was tested in the beam. Besides classical scintillator tile calorimeters with smallest tiles ever used, a completely new approach was proposed with independent measurement of scintillation and Cherenkov light produced in fibers. Special attention is given to new photodetectors - silicon photomultipliers - which have been extensively used for the scintillator readout. Their main advantages are a high gain ~106 at a low bias voltage 55-75 V, easy integration into a scintillator and a reasonable price.
