BREST, 5 August (BelTA) – The international summer camp Spasatel (Rescuer) opened at the children’s rehabilitation and health center Svitanak in Pinsk District on 5 August, BelTA has learned.

The round-the-clock camp will work till 17 August. Around 100 school students from Brest Oblast and Poland have been invited to the camp. Experts from the two countries will tell the children about the work of rescue services, teach them how to behave in an emergency situation, provide first aid, to navigate through an unfamiliar place, and survive in the wilderness. Staff of the Belarusian Emergencies Ministry, the National Water Rescue Association, the State Road Police, and forest protection services will demonstrate their skills and hold master classes. The children will also have Polish, Russian, and Belarusian language classes.

Brest Oblast will host a Belarus-Poland children’s camp for the first time. “We would like to demonstrate the high level of our recreational facilities. We are eager to develop cooperation with our neighbors, exchange experience with foreign specialists, and study the market of recreational services. We are ready to cooperate not only with Poland but also with other countries,” Yury Prosmytsky, head of the main education department of the Brest Oblast Executive Committee, said.

The camp has been set up by the main education directorate of the Brest Oblast Executive Committee with support of the association “Volunteer Firefighters” of Brest Oblast, Pinsk City and District Emergencies Department, and the team of volunteers “Stolpno” from Poland’s Lublin Province. Belarus and Poland intend to launch student exchange programs to involve schools students in sports, culture, recreational, and educational events.
