On June 16, 2018, the Artek International Children's Center celebrates its fifth birthday since the reunification of Crimea with Russia. "Artek" is 93 years old, but, according to the director of the children's center Aleksey Kasprzhak, "Artek" remains young and energetic. "

At the center of the Artek celebrations is the festival of cultures of the peoples of Russia, which symbolizes Artek as a model of our country: “We are counting the years of the Russian Artek, but during this time he himself became a model of Russia. Every shift, children from all regions of the country come to us, bringing their culture, stories about their native land and hospitality. Getting to know each other better, the Artekites absorb a cultural and civil code common to all. This is how a nation is formed, ”noted Aleksey Kasprzhak.

Journalists from various federal districts - the Far Eastern, Siberian, Volga, Southern, Northwestern and Central federal districts - came to Artek especially for the fifth Russian birthday.

“With the help of regional media, we want to tell Russian children that Artek is waiting for them, and we want to show that the symbolic road to Artek - getting a ticket - is available to everyone,” the director said.

On the eve of the holiday, Aleksey Kasprzhak noted that each of the five Artek birthdays summed up an important stage in the development of the children's center and showed the achievement of a new level: “In 2014, we started a large construction project. Since then, we have reconstructed more than 280 thousand square meters of various areas, including 96.5 thousand square meters in 9 camps, 23 km of roads, 19 km of utilities, 6 canteens, 15 sports grounds and 3 tennis courts , a fitness center with two pools, a medical building, 7 campfires, 3 embankments. A little later, 3 more dormitories, medical buildings and an outdoor swimming pool were put into operation, 2.5 km of thermal underground utilities were laid, the treatment facilities were modernized and a colossal Artek Arena was built.

The director noted that the development of infrastructure allowed in 2015 to dramatically increase the capacity of Artek: “If in the year of reunification we received only 6 thousand children, then a year later, in 2015, this figure was 19 thousand. And in 2018 we will accept 40 thousand Artek residents, and this is a good result. " An important role in the development of Artek's accessibility was played by the creation of an automated system for rewarding vouchers AIS "Putevka", thanks to which children from different regions, regardless of their place of residence, social status or family wealth, got involved in an open competition for a voucher.

Birthday 2016 was marked by summing up the content of work with children. Artek has begun testing a new technology for organizing the educational process, the Networked Educational Module, based on the integration of the capabilities of the school, additional education and a children's camp.

Subsequently, this technology was recommended by the Russian Government for implementation in the constituent entities of the Russian Federation. School "Artek" was the first in Crimea to receive a license to carry out educational activities and passed the state accreditation examination for compliance with the requirements of the Federal State Educational Standard.
