Raduga, founded by the company in 1971, is the largest recreation camp for children in Novgorod region. It is located in Valdai National Park, on the shore of Beloye Lake. In 2022, the camp sessions were focused on chemistry to mark Acron’s 55th anniversary. Children attended chemistry classes and learnt about chemical elements. During each session, campers could participate in the career-oriented events where HR experts informed them about available positions at Acron.
Aurora is located on the banks of the Msta River, 40 km from Veliky Novgorod. Every summer, professional counsellors organise sports, art, vocal and dance activities for campers. The camp annually hosts Acron’s Versty, a series of races with competitors from around the country. Aurora welcomes campers year-round and hosts Acron teams for professional and corporate events.
