On the second day after arrival, all the International session participants from 14 countries gathered in “Orlyonok” for the International Youth Forum. The Russian Federation is represented by delegations from Saint-Petersburg and Moscow, regions of Moscow and Sverdlovsk, cities of Samara, Kazan, Ufa, Novorossiysk and Omsk, the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia).
Today the so called 'brand-new eaglets' ('Orlyata' in Russian) visited the History Museum of “Orlyonok” and the Water And World Heritage exhibition, featuring many water element's aspects: role of water as a source of life in the human history, as a means of communication for nations, as an inspiration source for literature, architecture and painting. Samples of river, rain, natural mineral, spring, distilled and tap water, a mobile chemical laboratory, a vast collection of articles, scientific reviews, magazines and brochures, dedicated to research of water, water resources and water areas, as well as numerous ecology-related written works from the Center's unique library, excite and engage the campers into the main theme of the session.
The last day of spring at the Camp was devoted to The Day Free of Smoking. The children shared their opinions about smoking as an unhealthy habit, they selected the best mottos, created the motivational mural featuring their multicolored handprints with ideas of how to solve this problem. In the evening all campers are going to take part in sports competitions, attend the educational meeting with social-psychological staff, and have fun in the Be Healthy dance-and-play programme.
Alexander Plamadyala, 15 years, from Gogol Lyceum in Kishinev: “It feels it's been a long week these eventful 2 days. Best of all, I was impressed by the big Camp fire yesterday, where all children from our team gathered. While we were sharing stories about ourselves, I understood that even though we come from different cities and countries, we are all united by the common way of thinking and shared interests.
