Financial Assistance To Attend Camps
Do you want to come on a PYV camp, but simply can’t afford it?
We want to encourage parents and campers to contact your church's Board of Management, family members or other church members to ask for their support in meeting the cost. Maybe your youth group can host a fundraising event.
If you are still unable to meet the costs of camp the Social Services Committee of the Presbyterian Church of Victoria also has funds available on request for those who wish to attend camps but are not in a financial position to do so.
Please read through the camp funding guidelines from the Social Services Committee.
