Unlike other children camps, about which we usually tell, Smart Camp Marabou is not called a Jewish camp. But its founders Sergei Kuznetsov and Ekaterina Kadieva for many years create a website «Booknik», which is dedicated to Jewish culture. They were inspired by experience of Russian mathematics camps and international Jewish camps and came up with an idea of creating Smart Camp Marabou.
Originally Smart Camp Marabou was planned as a camp for children living in Europe. But to the surprise of the organizers there were many children enrolled from Russia. So the team of the Smart Camp asked us to tell you about this project and provided 10% discount to our subscribers.

Cost for clients of Ralph I. Goldman Nikitskaya JCC: 2250 euros for session (including tuition, accommodation, meals, and excursions). If necessary, a shuttle service (from Prague airport to the camp or vice versa) is provided for 50 euros.
