26,600 children to enjoy organized summer in Yakutsk

 The Yakutsk City Council has approved the Regulation on organizing the leisure of children during the summer holidays in camps at educational institutions of the city with non-stop and day stay.

21 educational institutions and the five permanent camps have received subsidies, so the parental contribution in the tour price will not exceed 10% of the total cost.

The city schools, gymnasiums and lyceums have more than 35,000 children, thus not less than 76% of the children will be covered by the organized summer holidays. In total, the organization of summer holidays and health improvement of children is to be provided with 27 million rubles from the republic's budget, and 9.6 million rubles – from the municipal one.
