Krasnodar, 25 June. Over the past five years, 177 new children’s summer camps and health centres have been opened in the Kuban region. The regional authorities believe that the increase was linked to the spread of resort infrastructure, expansion of state support, and better financing of the entire industry. Since 2015, the expenditures have reportedly grown by a billion roubles.
Every year, over 770,000 children recreate in the region, of whom 600,000 are local residents. This year, however, the pandemic changed the usual schedule of children’s recreation – all facilities have already missed two sessions due to the quarantine. By the governor’s decision, the first health resorts will resume work on July 1 – though at first, they will be receiving only local kids. Many camps have used this break to repair and upgrade their buildings and campuses.
Kuban Governor Veniamin Kondratiev was quoted as setting a task to develop and preserve the network of regional and municipal camps. Last year, such camp was restored in Anapa. In 2018, a property in Kabardinka was handed over to the regional Ministry of Labour and Social Development. It is to resume work in 2021.
