Calculate Summer Camp is our annual summer camp supported by Calculate Ltd. Welcome to Pesochny Island near Baryshevo, in Leningrad Region. It takes place on the last weekend of July, from Friday to Sunday.

We felt inspired by the [Gentoo Summer Camp] (, held in Russia until 2013 at Bologoye. After this event closed, we decided to take up the initiative and organize a Calculate Summer Camp in 2014. As we are from Saint-Petersburg, it is held in Leningrad Region.

All Calculate Linux users and their families are invited. As it informal, you can talk to a developer or a user, ask questions if you have any, learn more about are plans and projects. Since 2017, a shuttle Calculate Bus has been available for your convenience from the Prospekt Veteranov metro station to the boat station at Baryshevo.
