Business idea; tent camps (campings)

Children's camp is a stationary institution designed for educational, cultural and physical development and upbringing of children. Currently, there are a significant number of summer camps, some of them are universal, some are highly specialized (sports in a particular sport, medical - sanatorium, training, labor, etc.). The main working time of the camp is summer. period from June to August. In the rest of the suitable time of the year, the existing premises can be rented out for recreation (April, May, September).

The main target audience is school students. A significant part of them are children of the nearest settlements, which, however, does not limit the provision of services to children of their distant cities. Accordingly, the age range of pupils varies from 6 to 18 years old.

The relevance of the service is based on various reasons: camps are used as educational centers for children, they instill in them a sense of responsibility, independence, improve their physical qualities, instill a love of sports and care for the environment. Specialized camps allow to consolidate the academic knowledge of pupils in school disciplines, are training grounds for various sports, and can be used for the treatment and prevention of diseases.

Requirements for the location, premises of the children's camp

Children's camps, as a rule, are located in a forest zone in the immediate vicinity of water bodies. The zone should be cleared of trees, have a flat landscape and a huge area for placing buildings for pupils and administrative premises (kitchen, dining room, medical unit, security room, etc.), as well as for playgrounds. It is also necessary to comply with the chemical and bacteriological parameters of soil and water standards. The approximate cost of renting a 1 ha municipal land plot is about 200,000 rubles per year. The cost can vary widely depending on the location and region of the country.

The premises must be supplied with hot and cold water supply, drainage, as well as power supply and have fire-extinguishing and ventilation systems. Due to the impossibility of supplying centralized systems, water heating and power supply is carried out through the operation of generators. Water disposal and sewerage is carried out through a filter system and the work of municipal services. The premises must comply with the requirements of SanPiN.

Children's camp staff

Strict requirements are imposed on the staff of the children's summer camp, because minors are in the care of employees for a long time.

An administrator is required to organize the work of the children's camp. His responsibilities include all organizational work, attracting clients, drawing up and concluding contracts with clients, with municipal services, etc. Requirements: higher education and work experience in a managerial position.

Description of business, product or service

According to Federal Law No. 124 "On Basic Guarantees of the Rights of the Child in the Russian Federation", a children's camp is an organization of children's recreation and health improvement, to which children are sent during the holidays or other period provided for by the operating regime of the organization. Camps are available year-round and seasonal.

On the organization of tent camps (camping). You need to choose a popular tourist destination. For example, Lake Baikal, Altai, the Black Sea coast. The place should be very famous, then it will be easier to sell it. Rather, then it will not need to be sold at all, it sells itself. It is enough just to inform the person who wants to have a rest that you can organize it.

In the field of tourism and recreation, of course, all-inclusive vouchers with accommodation in hotels and recreation centers are the most popular. But there is a small stratum of people who want to be closer to nature, it is a thrill for them to live in tents. Among them there are people who are able to organize such a vacation for themselves. They are useless to us. But that small part of people who are interested in such a semi-extreme vacation, but who cannot take care of themselves - here they are our clients in campsites.

Once, while working as a campsite caretaker, I was very surprised - among the visitors there were people who were not able to make a fire on their own! What if they hadn't found me? What if the campsite closed (they just came up in the last 2 days of its work)? Would they have stayed hungry and frozen? And it was at Lake Baikal in September, it is already cold there at that time.

In general, the point is that there are people who want more harsh romance, but are not able to fully support their livelihoods.

How to organize your business

Choose a region for your camping, find there a beautiful place where you can set up 10-20 tents. Purchase all the necessary equipment (a sample list is given below), find a cook and administrator among the locals. Start selling tours to your camp in another city. Necessarily in something else. And the further it goes, the better. For the locals, it will not be of great interest, they will not pay for it. By the way, you can also earn money by transferring people to the camp site. Both airlines and Russian Railways provide group discounts that you can safely put in your pocket, and give your customers tickets at the regular price. Or, better, turn it into another advantage of your services - “we book tickets at low prices”.

What services to provide?

Firstly, the rental of personal equipment: tents, sleeping bags, travel mats, dishes. Secondly, the general arrangement of the camp: you need to organize a field kitchen, shower, bath, washbasin, toilet. Thirdly, food and transfer in both directions. Additionally: various entertainment, rental of bicycles, boats, catamarans, various excursions - here for the first time it is best to attract partners who are already working in those places. They will certainly be happy to provide their * business * services to your vacationers.

Keep in mind that accommodation in your camp should be cheaper than in economy class recreation centers. Last year, accommodation in an economy class room for one person was about 500 rubles and meals were about 700 rubles. Then, for a tent camp, an acceptable price will be 300 and 500 rubles, respectively.

What equipment do you need for your business?

A sample list of what you need to organize a camp:

  • awning (stretch over the table, make a covered dining room)
  • large camping tent (for field kitchen)
  • two and three person tents
  • bedrooms
  • camping mats (foams)
  • gas burners or stoves
  • gas cylinder
  • outdoor shower <
  • camp washbasin
  • camp bath
  • tables and benches (it is better to buy timber and build them on site)
  • dishes: pots, plates, mugs, spoons, cutting boards, etc.

All this for 20 people, with a wholesale purchase, will cost 60,000 - 100,000 rubles. At a price of 300 rubles per person (rental of personal equipment and use of general equipment), it pays off in 10-20 days. And the tourist season averages 60-90 days. Thus, in one season, such a business can generate 240 - 480 tons. It's just gear. Calculate the income from the meals of vacationers minus the cost of food and the salary of the cook. And do not forget about partners providing excursions and other entertainment, they usually give 10%.
