Excursion program (conducted according to the regulations of Rospotrebnadzor):

Myshkin (1777)

The city-museum of the Russian province, which has preserved the old buildings of the merchant city and a special provincial way of life. Myshkin pilots and merchants were known throughout the great Volga River. The famous Myshkinsky fairs were held here. Myshkin merchants bought large volumes of eggs, grain, vegetable oil along the Volga and sold them in St. Petersburg. Myshkin is famous for its blacksmiths and potters. Myshkin craftsmen used birch beads to make furniture for royal residences. Today Myshkin is the center of Russian crafts. Located on the left bank of the Volga, 15 minutes from the camp.

Uglich (937)

The old Russian town of Uglich stands on the Volga River, just in that picturesque place where it makes a steep break. The history of Uglich is inextricably linked with the Time of Troubles.
The city has become the arena of epoch-making events in the history of the Russian state. On May 15, 1591, in the Uglich Kremlin, under mysterious circumstances, the last offspring of the ruling Rurik dynasty, Tsarevich Dmitry, the son of Ivan the Terrible, died. Here, with the death of Tsarevich Dmitry, the Rurik dynasty ended, and here the Romanov dynasty began: the Uglian noblewoman Ksenia Shestova, the mother of the first tsar of the dynasty Mikhail.

Yaroslavl (1010)

Yaroslavl emerged as the first Christian city on the Volga in 1010. Since the 13th century, the center of the Volga trade routes, business relations have been established with the countries of the East and West, especially with Scandinavia and Great Britain. Yaroslavl became the center of transit trade; goods from Northern Europe and the East were transported through the region along the Volga-Caspian route. Yaroslavl is a city of temples with the largest number of churches and cathedrals of the 16-17 centuries.

Never send your children there !!!

Summer English School Vysokovskiy bor — summer camp in Russia

Высоковский Бор, Yaroslavl Oblast, Russia

Never send your children there !!! Today the children were taken away for the second shift. We brought our daughter to the designated place - car parking at the Polyot shopping center. Four buses without air conditioning for two at 36 degrees and unaccompanied by the traffic police. Without accepting and checking documents, without any marks of acceptance, the children were stuffed onto buses. Our child was not on the lists, as well as several other children. One girl was even kicked out of the bus because of this, she just stood on the street, she stood and cried. And it's good that her parents didn't leave !!! In search of those who are generally responsible for the lists and the children we were "sent" from one worker to another, each of whom eventually said that he was "no one here" and "is not responsible for the children" !!! Among these workers, "stuffing" children into buses were: sound engineer, sales department, administrator, physician, etc. All, according to their words, "are not responsible for anything." We did not let our daughter into this hell. And we do not understand parents who are ready to "shove" a child anywhere, with anyone and in any conditions. What a round-the-clock stay we can talk about if two adults were “sent” by all roads by unresponsible camp staff when solving a simple question! How, then, do children solve pressing problems on the spot? What kind of child safety are we talking about? If, already at the stage of delivery of children, the requirements for their safety are not respected, and a minor child can simply be thrown out of the bus due to the absence in the lists !!! ???

English at a good level, my daughter worked well

Summer English School Vysokovskiy bor — summer camp in Russia

Высоковский Бор, Yaroslavl Oblast, Russia

English at a normal level, my daughter worked well.

 


The rest of the disadvantages: food at the level of a concentration camp, children are always hungry, white bread and sticky pasta and rice. According to her daughter's story, she had never been so hungry in her life. The store was promised, but in the end it was far away and was canceled. The interior in the Vysokovsky Bor camp is devastated in the style of a Soviet beggar. They stole a few things not expensive, but the main thing is the fact. The furnishings of the scoop, we thought there were no such places left. There was practically no Internet and telephone connection. And no one said that only Tele2 works, they would give a card to a child.

Children are bored

Summer English School Vysokovskiy bor — summer camp in Russia

Высоковский Бор, Yaroslavl Oblast, Russia

Bad organization, children are not watched. Children humiliated the child, swore in the presence of the counselors. Counselors do not work with children. There are no circles besides the photo. Children are bored. Children got infected and got sick in the camp. The doctor treats their duties badly thinking that children are just weak in health and it's okay if they get infected.

Despitea beautiful beach, children did not swim in the heat

Summer English School Vysokovskiy bor — summer camp in Russia

Высоковский Бор, Yaroslavl Oblast, Russia

I wanted to write a lot, but decided to simply outline the picture in a thesis.
1. The settlement went with problems - the camp was not ready to accept the children brought by the parents. Children hung out unattended for at least 2 hours. I had to call the director several times in order to somehow resolve the situation.
2. The rooms are badly shabby.
3. There are a lot of sick children.
4. Some children left the camp AWOL in the evenings.
5. In the presence of a beautiful beach, children did not swim in the heat.
6. There is no connection. God bless him with the Internet, but even calling a child was a problem. Taking into account the fact that they took their daughter with a temperature of 39.8, the connection turned out to be very relevant.
7. Food is not very good. The child lost 2 kg in 2 weeks.
8. Question about the procedure for entering the camp. We brought the child ourselves. In the documents for check-in, PCR was indicated 72 hours before check-in (no more). A girl came with us not according to the incamp program, but simply to this camp. The girl's mother assured us that no one told them anything about PCR (the girl was admitted to the camp). It turns out that the children who came under the incamp program were settled with PCR, and all the rest (most of them) without PCR. As a result, the daughter fell ill and not only her.

Many thanks to everyone who made the effort to organize and carry out the 4th shift. I sent my daughter for the first time, I was very worried that she was still little. As it turned out, all the excitement was in vain. Excellent warm environment, disciplined, pleasant counselors, warm clean buildings. Special thanks to the educator of the 5th detachment Tatyana Lvovna, a good kind teacher who loves children and strives to create all conditions for the child's rest. My bunny arrived joyful, her eyes are burning and already wants to go back. I know for sure, next summer, we will come to you.
