The team of Camping Azerbaijan already climbes for the fourth year to the remote areas of northern Azerbaijan, including Guba and Gusar mountain villages, in favor of their Santa Claus project. Beforehand, they collect gifts, toys and games for the children and hand them over dressed up in Santa Claus costumes.
