Thanks to this, parents pay only a third of the cost, while the company compensates for the main part. More in detail is in Realnoe Vremya’s report.

Close cooperation with Tatarstan camps

Youth camp, which is located near Nizhnekamsk, has had four sessions this summer, each of which has over 400 children on holiday. Children of TAIF-NK employees are among them. 12-year-old Polina went on holiday to the camp for the first time last year. The girl liked it so much that this time she persuaded her parents to send her to the camp again.

“I like that it is much fun at the camp. I made many friends, and we keep in touch even after the camp ends. We had classes every day, I liked journalism the most, I didn’t miss a class,” Polina shared.

A tour to a three-week session costs about 26,500 rubles. But there are discounts for TAIF-NK employees: parents pay only 30% of the price, TAIF-NK compensates for the rest of the sum. The enterprise works with four camps with a similar scheme: it’s Youth, The Olympian and Seagull in Nizhnekamsk as well as Baytik in Kazan.

Discount tours within social policy

The enterprise gives discount tours within its social policy, which has been followed at TAIF-NK for many years. If previously the employees’ children could go on holiday only to camps in Nizhnekamsk District, several years ago the company began to expand the geography on the initiative of TAIF-NK JSC Director General Rushan Shamgunov, so now the enterprise also cooperates with Kazan camps. These camps book tours for TAIF-NK, which are then distributed among the employees. 165 children of the employees can have a rest during the summer in general. First of all, it is children from large and single-parent families and children of participants in military actions.

“Now it is a luxury to send a child to a camp. The enterprise covers a big part of the cost, this is why parents have just to pay a little bit. Thanks to this, my son has a chance to go to the summer camp,” TAIF-NK employee Olga Nikolayeva shared.

Every term has about seven sports, for instance, athletics, judo, boxing, freestyle wrestling, basketball. All children have two training sessions a day: before lunch and in the evening.
