Camping facilities in Camagüey celebrate its 40th anniversary



Camagüey, Apr 17.- The Provincial Camping Company began the program of activities for the 40th anniversary of these facilities, created at the initiative of Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz with the purpose of promoting healthy recreation and contact with nature, objectives that are maintained but in enclaves with better conditions.

José Luis Pérez Castellanos, director of that entity, said that although these places are currently serving as isolation centers to stop the COVID-19 pandemic, several maintenance actions have been carried out, which include recreational and other outdoor areas.

In line with the food sovereignty program that is implemented in the country, orchards are promoted in all campsites for self-sufficiency, with palpable results, while working on the diversification of the tourism product and on projects to implement electronic commerce.

Los Cangilones, in the municipality of Sierra de Cubitas, stands out as the second facility of its kind open in the nation and the first in Camagüey, with a current total of 1,048 capacities in 191 rooms.

As a positive aspect, the permanence of all workers stands out, even in the epidemiological context, some in the red zones of the accommodation. This force is made up of more than 400 men and women, of which 60 percent are female and more than a third are young.

Naturally together, the motto that presides over the campaign for the four decades of Popular Camping, defines the work carried out throughout this time in Camagüey, a premise that will guide the future steps of an entity preferred by the domestic market for rest and leisure. (Juan Mendoza Medina / Radio Cadena Agramonte)
