Furthermore, there was constructed the map of providing appropriate facilities with five different levels (very low, low, medium, high, very high). This research confirms the low level of providing children’s camps in different territorial units in Ukraine. Besides, a lot of territorial units of our country with high and very high levels of providing are temporarily occupied and uncontrolled. This study allowed highlighting the basic regularities of children’s camps placement in Ukraine, such as the placement of camps tends to nature-recreational resources, most camps are located in villages or settlements of urban type, suburban areas of district centres or cities of regional subordination, only one children`s camp is situated on territories with very low and low level of providing. Thus, only 42,2 % of territorial units in Ukraine are used for the needs of children`s tourism. Nonetheless, there is a prospect of building a network of children’s camps in areas with significant nature-recreational potential, which today are provided by camps at low and medium levels.
