For the first time, Egypt was chosen to host the Russian International Camp
Egypt has been chosen to host the Russian International Camp organised by Russia's Ross Atom Foundation for the first time in the event's history. The camp is organised in Russia or in countries that cooperate together with Russia in the production of nuclear energy. Egypt became a cooperating country after the signing of the Dabaa Agreement by presidents Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and Vladimir Putin.
As a result, the organizing committee of the Ross Atom Foundation invited the children of the world to come to Egypt to organize the Russian International Camp for this winter, and it is currently searching for the appropriate place for the camp to take place, with Alexandria, Sharm El Sheikh or Hurghada being nominated as finalists. The camp is organised in cooperation with the Russian Cultural Centre in Cairo.
The aim of the camp is to enable children to learn about modern trends in contemporary art, while acquiring the abilities of self-determination and self-discovery. The camp also strives to make children’s lives bright and exciting with development of personal skills through the participation in artistic workshops in animation, engineering, invention, singing, theatre, painting, photography, and sports. The programme is supervised by a team of professionals as part of the educational initiative project of the Ross Atom School.
Ross Atom is Russia’s national atomic energy agency.
Aleksey Tevanyan, the director of the Russian Cultural Centre in Cairo, honoured the delegation of the Egyptian children who participated with 85 children from 10 countries in Turkey’s Jonyuk camp held by Russia last June.
