We are happy to announce that starting from today Baltic Blues Travel and Baltic Escape are together!
Baltic Escape is an incoming tour operator in the Baltic States working primarily with Belorussian and Russian customers. From now on managers of Baltic Escape will work together with the Russian department in Baltic Blues Travel and will be able to offer a wider range of products and better prices for their Russian and Belorussian clients.
Each tour operator has its own strong points and this consolidation will strengthen our positions in the Russian and Belorussian markets.
Since 2016 Baltic Blues Travel has been organizing the charity project – ecological summer camps for disadvantaged children in the Curonian Spit National Park.
We organize these camps for 3 major reasons:
We invite orphans and children living in poverty to spend 10 days in one of the most beautiful nature parks in the Baltic States – the Curonian Spit. It is is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is a live natural museum where long chains of sand dunes and forest are home for rare animals. The mass tourism challenges this unique and fragile environment. Therefore Baltic Blues feels responsibility to protect the beauty of this natural park.
In 2016-2018 Baltic Blues has organized summer 5 camps for 87 kids.
This year we organized 2 summer camps of 10 days for 34 children from 7 till 15 y. o.
They come from 2 Help Centers for socially disadvantaged groups from a small Lithuanian provincial town Birzai. These children live in poverty and most of them have never seen sea or traveled outside their region.
In our summer camps these kids participated in numerous activities, i.e. various workshops about environmental protection, team building and sport games, excursions, trekking, hand-craft classes.
They have also spent 40 hours of cleaning the beach and dunes and collected 8500 liters of garbage.
Moreover every year Baltic Blues’ staff volunteers to spend one weekend cleaning the sea shores together with the children.
We would like to say special thank you to our partners for their financial support:
We are happy to share a report from Beaver Camps 2018:
For several years, we have been organising international excursions to The Curonian Spit. Due to this, we came up with an idea to thank to this unique place and have fun by inviting the socially disadvantages children. We strive to do good things and enjoy by cleaning the nature, picking up the trashes from tourist hotspots and getting know each other and our lovely surrounding/ nature.
In 2016-2017 Baltic Blues House has organised 3 summer camps for 52 kids.
Every camps lasted 11 days and had numerous awesome educational and entertainment activities focused on learning about environmental protection and personal development through practical exercisers and games, as well as excursions to the Delphinium, Sea museum, hikes, boat trips along the dunes and 1000 other great memories.
Moreover these kids made the Curonian Spit cleaner – Collected 9000 litres of garbage in dunes, beach and playgrounds.
Everyone is welcome and can contribute to this social initiative. Our vision is to organise camps through the whole of summer and bring it to international level by inviting children from other countries. To make this happen, we kindly ask for support from other environmentally responsible travel companies and new investments.
See report from summer camps 2017.
