Summer vacation for children

Summer vacation for children

Planning a children's vacation on vacation is not an easy task. Even ten years ago, children boasted to each other of the number of pioneer camps visited and the shifts held in them, but now Soviet-type children's health camps are no longer attractive to young Belarusians. There are reasons for this: the development of tourism and education, the availability of travel abroad, an increase in living standards.

Every parent wants the child to have a rest over the summer, gain strength and health, preferably for the next year, and also not to stagger around while parents are at work, and not sit all day in front of the blue screens of gadgets ... It will be quite great if the child also learns something useful in the summer.

Alternatively, you can send your child to a development camp. Here, the child is constantly under supervision, and parents do not need to invent entertainment. The organizers and counselors have already taken care of everything. However, this pleasure is by no means cheap.

Now all available options for children's recreation can be divided into several types:

  • Pioneer camp. A descendant of the Soviet children's camp with lightning and chants on the way to the cafeteria.
  • Development private camp. With technology, teachers, and not necessarily outdoors.
  • Scout camp. Camping in tents with training in survival skills.
  • Rest abroad with an educational program.
  • Camp by the sea. Artek is still alive and well, but there are less famous and more affordable options.

Pioneer camp

The most budgetary option. The shift lasts 17-20 days, counselors are students or teachers, four or five meals a day are included. You shouldn't wait for language learning or etiquette here. The pioneer camp is, rather, just a rest in a cheerful company.

How to buy a ticket? If you work for a government enterprise, contact your union with this question. People who have any benefits can even get vouchers for children free of charge. For the rest, the state pays up to 70% of the cost of the voucher. Here you can learn about children's camps to which employees of state-owned enterprises in Minsk and the Minsk region send children. The total cost of the voucher is from 300 to 1000 Belarusian rubles per shift.

Development private camp

This is a new level of pioneer camps. Recently, this direction of children's tourism is gaining momentum. When choosing a private children's camp, start from the living conditions and the availability of an educational program. By the way, some private educational camps for children do not offer accommodation.

For example, SKILLCAMP-2019 from 2English. y is a full day language camp (children are in the camp from 9 am to 6 pm). Training takes place in Minsk. Children learn languages ​​and do creative work, but do not live separately from their parents. Such a camp is comparable to language courses. The cost of the "shift" is 435 BYN. There is a similar format in Minsk City Swimming Camp (ssh2o. Y) costing up to 375 BYN, City Football Camp "Arsenal" and others. More information about urban development camps can be found here.
