Objective of the study was to analyze the school children's involvement in different sport and health tourism projects prior to and after the relevant optional school courses. Subject to the study were 240 (128 boys and 112 girls) 5-7-graders from 10 schools (7 urban and 3 rural schools) in the Siberian Region. The study was performed in a few stages in the school years of 2014/2015 and 2015/2016. Comparative analysis of the degrees of the pupils' involvement in different sport and health tourism projects prior to and after the relevant optional school courses showed the optional courses being quite effective. It should be noted that there is a certain correlation of the degrees of the children's involvement in and interest to the tourism-related activity with the relevant interests in their families induced by the children. The short-term optional courses of tourism basics were found to encourage further interest of the pupils to advanced tourism-related education..
