Camp "Caravel": description, address, reviews
With the beginning of summer, moms and dads think about where to send their child on a wellness holiday. At the same time, for workers of the plant named after A.A. Kulakov such a problem no longer exists. In 1946, the company was allocated a territory for organizing the work of the Karavella children's camp, which is still functioning successfully. It is located on the Karelian Isthmus, on the shore of Lake Pionerskoe, away from noise, dust, industries and cars. In the opinion of children and parents it is difficult to find the best place for summer holidays.

Here the child can learn the basics of the Swedish spoken language, take part in psychological trainings, game activities aimed at developing the creative abilities of each child.
