Holiday camp grants are awarded for organising camp activities during the school holidays for children and youth aged 7–16 who are Helsinki residents. There are specific eligibility criteria for the number and duration of camps, participants, and dates, which you should read carefully.
The holiday camp grant is awarded for the camp season, which is from 1 November to 31 October. In other words, the grant is not awarded for a calendar year. We will pay up to 80% of the awarded grant based on your plans, and the remainder based on the number of actual camp days at the end of the season. You apply for the grant in advance for camps in the upcoming season.
When considering applying for youth activity grants, please carefully review both the general grant allocation guidelines and conditions and the specific award criteria and application guidelines for each grant type.
