Healthy atmosphere, small team, the right skills. Fresh air, simple and nutritious food, healthy sleep. Phones are issued once a day to call parents. A variety of activities and performances.
No swimming in the pool or river.
I will return to this camp again to see my friends and to be in another world again.

Many thanks for the tip. We are always pleased when parents are looking for a good communication environment for their children, now it is expressed in the buzzword “atmospheric”. When the child is raised by the environment, there are no edifications, reproaches and punishments. This, as well as our strict limit of 40 people, allows us to achieve a family atmosphere and high quality. The child feels correctly - this is another world, a world of creativity and friendship. And tents make us closer, allow us to develop soft skills, we call them good habits. Skills that ultimately result in helping to apply and recognize the knowledge that the school and family provide.
The lack of a telephone is a blessing for parents and children. Children on the second day forget about him. And 30 minutes a day is enough for parents to keep abreast of events, control the process for their own peace of mind, and for us this is feedback from parents. Not always from the first day a child trusts counselors, even as good as ours. We are pleased when parents become allies, helping to improve the quality of our work. We broadcast the philosophy of cooperation to children, and not mutual claims.
Yes, we don’t have a pool, and the rivers in the modern world, unfortunately, are not designed for swimming, but in good weather we have a lot of games with water: waterball, hydrant light, standard and super are children's favorite entertainments.
You also noticed about food correctly, we have it simple and useful. We eat together with the children at the common table, both the director and counselors. We talk a lot about healthy eating. We even vegetarians feel comfortable.
Thank you for finding the opportunity to come to our camp even from another continent. We are looking forward to seeing you in the summer of 2020. Shift topics are already known.
Great attitude towards children, interesting program, friendly and warm atmosphere!
This is a campground, all the "shortcomings" of life in nature are an excellent experience for modern children.
Will definitely be back here again!

Our psychologist sets up children for friendly and positive interaction from the first minute in the camp. Counselors in a literal word we grow out of your children, we study not only animation, but also conflict management, and acting, we train a lot and meet for a year. This allows us to achieve a friendly warm atmosphere, which is noticed by everyone who comes to us, both the children in the camp and the parents at the parent's day.
"Deficiencies" in nature are a huge merit of growth in personality in overcoming. And overcoming among friends is an adventure.
Thank you for your sensitive attitude to your child and our work.
Fresh air, responsibility, the child learns to live independently.
There are no flaws.
I really liked it! I want more, but on another shift, to visit all shifts.

Thanks. You correctly noted that the direction of the camp is independence. As one of our children said, thank you for fighting the problem of youthful infantilism. Independence develops best without parents, and for this you need to choose a camp in which you are sure that the environment meets your moral principles, and you can trust the people who make the camp.
Thank you for your trust! You trust us the most precious thing you have!
We will continue to cherish your trust. We look forward to the summer of 2020.
Great idea when viewed from a distance. The 11th daughter after staying (second shift) began to appreciate home comfort and food more, and also an understanding appeared of how important it is when in adversity
/ bad weather there are adequate people next to you. Since then, paraphrasing the known, evaluating new acquaintances, I ask the question - "and you could live in the same tent with her for a whole shift." Two weeks of clean air, herbal tea in the evenings and a bonfire.
Unfortunately, there are drawbacks, firstly nutrition, a lot of canned food and a little milk. The weather we have is different, even in the summer of cooling, and it’s difficult for children to remain without a heated hospital for a long time. Our first third was warm, and the rest of the time it rained and the temperature was below 15 C. It is good that there were no colds. In my opinion the price / quality is overpriced, probably the general price level.

We invite you on an excursion on parent's day to see everything with your own eyes and ask questions to children and parents of children who are resting in the camp. This is the best of all reviews on all sites. I can also give the phone numbers and addresses of parents and children in social networks. Ask a question directly and get an answer from those who were in the camp, without a colorful description of the camp’s marketers.
Now essentially a recall. I wanted to answer in a very detailed manner, but I will try very briefly.
With a rating of "2" for food, they are taken from the camp earlier than on the last day of the shift and not the very first. Moreover, the child called his parents every day, even when his phone was already discharged, dad came to transfer bread of his own production 6 days before the end of the shift and did not pick it up, was at the parent's day, ate and drank with the child and left it for another 2 days .
Parents, if you have questions, we always solve them along the way or in advance. So in this case, we removed the fish from the child’s food at the request of the parents, and this is not an easy task in the conditions of the camp. We even vegetarians live quietly. During the cold days, the parents could not bring the clothes to the child, and we dressed him warmly and gave us boots. My parents and I closely corresponded on all issues daily and around the clock. Not a single question was ignored. All issues have been resolved. (There are scans of correspondence) for those who wish.
Bad weather. It was only 3 days of bad weather. And all remained healthy! All parents were reassured. All children were dressed, even those who did not have clothes. Gave yours. Carefully read the recommendations of the organizers! Pack your things right! Especially to the campground! This is not a sanatorium in Turkey.
Staff 3 and programs 3
Training counselors takes 3 years. from 15 years to 18 years. The counselors' school is year-round with the participation of students in school educational programs in Russian culture and theatrical productions, lessons in psychology, management, project activities, internal positive motivation 4.0, conflict management, and Ajail project activities using TRIZ elements.
The classes are taught by the authors of “Pedagogy of Creation and Cooperation in the Family”, teachers and psychologists Vladimir Chubakin and Marina Zhokhova. She is the director of all films about the camp and the director and artistic director of the Mariinka children's theater studio. She has been working for more than 25 years.
The camp staff is permanent for 10 years out of 15. Everyone receives teacher training regardless of position.
1000 costumes for all occasions. We select, wash, customize, iron at each performance.
The girl liked to live in the camp. We have photo and video shooting. We do it for parents and for the film about the camp. The child is active and joyful. (who needs proof of the words moss, I made a selection of photos, videos and created a group VK. Dam link)
We love children. Everyone is dear to us. 70% of customers return. 30% become counselors. This is a system of educating responsible and successful people, and not just a camp. Therefore, secondary, ternary and decimal sales are simply necessary for us.
Price quality. 3
Parents bought a burning ticket to the campground. I took advantage of the super discount and used the coupon incamp.ru when buying. That is, we went much cheaper than the market price. They had no time to figure it out. Therefore, expectations did not materialize. Many organizers of children's vacations note that parents make a choice emotionally and not thoughtfully.
Friends, children, this is the most precious thing we have. By sending children to the camp, you will organize a safe rest for them. Any camp is better than a homeless camp, any suburban camp is better than a city camp, and the campground is generally special (colleagues, do not be offended) only in the campground you can work out life skills and independence in compliance with all sanitary standards. And this, believe me, is not easy, both for children and for organizers and parents, especially if the children are home, computer. Summer is a time for developing skills. Soft Skills - skills for a successful life and achieving goals. Development is always a way out of your comfort zone. Development can be fun and interesting.
When choosing a program in the camp and the camp itself, carefully study everything, narrowing the search to the goal.
We are very sorry that this happened. If, after a year, you will analyze everything again, listen to the opinion of the child, and return to the program, we will be happy. After all, the skill is a repeated repetition and it must be developed and supported by practice.
Negative feedback is always unrealistic expectations. In 90% of cases, they can be avoided by making the right choice, and 90% is up to you. And only 10% is a bad camp or scammers.
