Grant for camp participation fee
Kajo strives to be as accessible as possible. Grants enable camp participation for a wider range of participants.
The grants are awarded primarily based on financial need. Social factors that affect the applicant’s financial situation are also considered in the application process.
It is also possible to receive financial support for hobbies from the following:
- Those who receive income support can apply for supplementary social assistance from their municipal social services to help cover costs of recreational activities.
- The Tukikummit-foundation grants financial assistance through the Church’s diakonia. Contact the diaconal worker of your local parish for information regarding the application.
- Organizations like Hope ry and Save the Children (Pelastakaa Lapset ry) also grant financial assistance for recreational activities.
How to apply for a grant in Kuksa:
Fill in the enrollment form for Kajo. Apply for a grant by clicking ”Enroll and apply for a grant” at the end of the form. After this, you get to fill in the grant application form.
Information about the grants
The participant can apply for a grant to support their camp participation. The grant applications are submitted together with the camp registration (1.12.2021-2.2.2022). After the registration is closed, it is no longer possible to apply for a grant. Grant applicants do not pay the participation fee during registration. A guardian needs to fill in the grant application for a participant under the age of 18.
Grants can be applied for in two different categories:
250 euro (full camp fee), this grant is available for participants between ages 12-22 (born 2000-2010)
125 euro (half of the camp fee), this grant is available for all participants over 12 years (born 2010 or earlier)
Grants are only available for participants who enroll for the whole camp. Participants under the age of 12 years cannot be granted grants. The amount of the grant cannot be higher than the sum applied for. A participant who has applied for the full fee can, however, be granted half of the fee. The grant is not taxable income, and it doesn’t affect the study grant or income support received by the applicant or his/her household.
Grant applications are confidential and processed by a grant group that works separate from the camp organization. The participant gives their consent to the disclosure of data to the grant group when submitting an application. Grants are awarded purely based on the information in the application and no attachments are required.
The participant or the guardian of a minor participant will be directly informed of the grant decision by 1.4.2022. Applicants who receive a negative or a lower decision on their grant may cancel their participation in writing within two weeks of receiving the decision by contacting email@example.com. If the grant does not cover the full participation fee, the difference of the participation fee and the grant will be invoiced from the participant. False information on the application form may lead to the recovery of the grant.

Questions of the grant application form
When you fill out the application as a guardian, answer from the participants’s viewpoint, even when the question refers to “you” or “your”. If you are not granted the scholarship amount you applied for, you can cancel your participation. The cancellation must be done in written form within two weeks after you’ve received the scholarship decision.
