Recently, general education organizations have not paid enough attention to tourism, especially to the participation of schoolchildren in multi-day hikes. In this regard, it can be assumed that the school graduates do not have a proper level of knowledge in the field of tourism to successfully pass the tourist skills testing at the university.
Owing to the topicality and urgency of the above problem, the authors set the goal to justify the program of preparation and staging of special events intended to form the necessary tourist skills in students within the framework of the GTO requirements on the basis of sociological analysis.
The survey of the 1-4th-year students of non-sporting areas of bachelor training courses in Surgut State University (99 persons in total, 47 boys, 52 girls) it has been detected that more than 80% of respondents do not have experience of participating in a camping trip.
The survey results have generally confirmed the necessity of special training for the successful overcoming of the tourist route to be organized within the framework of a short-term program that can be implemented in the process of physical education. This will increase the students' competency level in the field of sport and health tourism and create the prerequisites for the successful fulfilment of the above-mentioned standard.

Keywords: students, tourist hike, Russian physical culture and sport "Ready for labour and defence" complex standards.
