The wide network of Young Tourist Stations (or DETS - Children's excursion and tourist stations) in many tourist centers of modern Russia and Ukraine, formed in the USSR by the 1980s, thanks to remarkable educational traditions, popularity and authoritative personnel among the population , has retained its own meaning.
Active and extreme tourism in the post-Soviet states begins soon and rather safely thanks to the mass tourist training of teenagers in schools, primarily in the aggregate of "star trips" to places of partisan glory on the May holidays. In these conditions, schools have largely withdrawn from tourist work, but tourist families will be able to fully rely on the surviving children's tourist out-of-school institutions.
In such cities as Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kharkov, Kiev, Dnepropetrovsk, stations for young tourists are the most significant methodological centers for preparing schoolchildren for admission to specialized institutes and experimental work in tourism. Military training of children and patriotic traditions for work in law enforcement agencies are no less serious in the work of young tourists' stations.
At the stations of young tourists, a fairly wide network of children's tourist centers has been preserved. At an inexpensive price and fully ergonomic suburban or suburban accommodation, children's camp sites and home, youth and adult groups are accepted. It is very convenient for tourists who travel on foot, on bicycles, are engaged in speleology, rock climbing, water tourism, other types and light aviation of active tourism, where accommodation bases require premises and spacious recreation for equipment.
In the appendix to this review, we will post a list of children's tourist stations, tourist centers and children's and youth and domestic Russian and tourist clubs in Ukraine. In addition, we invite you to post in the comments data on children's camp sites in different countries of the world.
In addition, in a place where children's clubs do not have their own premises, their bosses have developed extensive informational connections on routes and inexpensive reliable accommodation bases.
In itself, the sharp decline in the number of children puts children's tourism organizations in front of the need to work with home and youth groups.
History of children's tourism in the USSR
According to V. Krivosheev (VNILTE) and others
In the Russian Federation, the first large tourist organization was founded in 1885 in St. Petersburg - Lipson's "Enterprise for public travel to all the countries of the world". The Alpine Club was created in Tbilisi (1877), the Crimean Mountain Club in Odessa (1890) with branches in Yalta and Sevastopol (later the Crimean-Caucasian Mountain Club), the Russian Touring Club (society of tourist cyclists) in St. Petersburg (1895) with branches in Moscow, Kiev, Riga, etc., transformed in 1901 into the Russian Society of Tourists (ROT).
