The justdilijanit.org website, which was launched in January 2017, has all the information you could possibly need about JUST DILIJAN IT! in three languages, Russian, English and Armenian. Parents can learn about the timetable and content of the summer programme and find answers to all their questions, as well as book and pay for the camp, which takes place in Dilijan. Any visitors who are unable to find what they need on the site, can select the “Get in touch” option, which allows the parents of the participating kids to send questions to the camp organizers directly.
As a reminder, booking for JUST DILIJAN IT! 2017 summer programme, the smart holiday for kids, is open from 16 January. This year the camp will be led by Yuri Gorvits, Doctor of Psychology, Head of the Higher Education Program for Apple Russia and winner of a prestigious Russian Government award in the sphere of education. In the words of Natalia Podolnaya, director of educational programmes for the Scholae Mundi foundation, the organizers of JUST DILIJAN IT!, Yuri’s appointment will strengthen the educational component of the kids’ holiday.
Just like last year, JUST DILIJAN IT! is targeted at 10-17 year-olds and takes place on the campus of the UWC Dilijan international school in Dilijan, Armenia. Four groups, each lasting 14 days, will run from 7 July to 4 August. It is expected that each group, two in Russian and two in English, will host from 100-120 participants.
One of the bonuses of JUST DILIJAN IT! is that the kids are surrounded by the Dilijan national park and learn about the culture and history of Armenia, which through trips and excursions turns into an incredible adventure.
"The international JUST DILIJAN IT! programme was extremely successful last year, and provided something interesting for all the kids regardless of their age, social background or which country they came from. Some of the kids took part in the summer programme thanks to grants from various funds, including Scholae Mundi Armenia (SMA). This year we plan on continuing this tradition", said Andrey Khodzhikyan, the executive director of the Scholae Mundi foundation.
