There is an international challenge to meet the developmental needs of disadvantaged children, especially during the summer months of school vacation, when education and child care are scarce. The structure and opportunities provided through education and child care serve to buffer children against the multiple stressors related to poverty. As a population particularly vulnerable to poverty, disadvantaged children face long-term consequences when their developmental needs are not met. In the area of Velikiy Novgorod, Russia, this problem is being addressed through Camp Dzerginez, a cost-free summer camp for disadvantaged children.
