Summary/Abstract: The text presents the policy of the Bulgarian Tourism Association (BTA) toward children and youngsters during the first period of its existence (1899 – 1914) г. One of the main priorities of the BTA was, through tourism and in cooperation with the state authorities, to make the young Bulgarians become patriots who will know the nature resources of their country and its cultural and historic achievements. The feeling of being bound to the destiny of the own country and the responsibility for working for its prosperity were encouraged. BTA fulfilled these intentions by a purposeful activity program including outings and discussions on particular tourism themes as well as construction of necessary equipment for the implementation of this program.
