A letter to international counselors
Dear colleagues and those who want to become them!
We are welcoming you on behalf of the staff of Russian children camp “New Generation” located in Perm Krai in the European part of Russia near the Ural Mountains.
If you like working with children and you want to have an amazing experience in Russian children camps, we are looking for you!
Here is an FAQ for you:
June 24-th till July 14-th 2017 camp “New Generation” will host an international camp session-shift with a program “The World is open for us”. Counselors from different cities in Russia and counselors from all over the world will come to this session to work with children in our camp and you could be one of them!
You will have a chance to tell children about your country, traditions and culture, show your interesting skills and abilities, teach kids something new and exciting, organize your own workshop. That could be different arts and crafts, sports and your own hobbies.
We are to provide you with an accommodation in our camp since 23-rd of June till 14-th of July 2017 throughout the entire session of 21 days.
We will meet you in the airport in Moscow. Accompanied by our representatives you will travel by train via Trans-Siberian Railway to Perm (one-day journey). From the train station you will be transferred by car directly to camp. We are expecting 14 international counselors in total for the session.
3. Expenses and visa:
Transfer to/from Moscow are at your own costs. Travel costs and tickets inside of Russia are the responsibility of the camp. We will make an official invitation for you for visa (if required). Health insurance you organize on your own. Accommodation, food and healthcare inside the camp are free of charge for you.
You will live in summer houses (4 people together) with facilities on the camp territory. Camp is located next to the river Kama in the green area. Children housing, main building (club and canteen), dance hall, sport facilities, medical center and other objects situated on the area of 10 hectares. Find more about our camp in our invitation letter and on our website
Also you can us on social media:
Counselors and pedagogues dine 3 times a day: breakfast, dinner and supper. Menu is the same for everyone. We don’t provide extra vegetarian, kosher or any other specific type of food or diet. Food consumption is based on standards required for children facilities by Rospotrebnadzor (national organization controlling living quality)
6. Medical center:
Medical center works every day from 10:00 till 22:00. Emergency help is available at any time. Medical expenses inside the camp are covered by camp.
In order for you to have a possibility to work with children you have to bring “развернутая карта осмотра врача” (health examination card)
In the camp you will be organizing workshops and participating in camp activities.
International counselors of the previous summer organized:
— Presentation about their countries, state, culture, traditions, interesting facts.
— Sport events, arts and crafts, creative workshops and other activities.
— Group activities – direct communication with children and language practices. Of course, our regular counselors will assist you with everything.
— Final concert or event in the last day, where all workshops present the result of their work.
That kind of program is what we are interested in. Almost everything you want to do is possible to organize.
We think, children will be excited to do: crafts, boyscout activities, playing music instruments, team and individual sports, dance, yoga, etc. We are happy to see any new activities if they are safe. You can also plan activities on water, since we are located on a riverside.
If you are interested in our offer, you can apply for a counselor position by sending (in English or Russian):
- Short video message about yourself and your hobbies.
- Motivation letter (~600 words) about yourself and things you can teach children to do.
Russian language skills and experience in pedagogue are also a bonus.
