Pinskut is offering free summer camp experiences for low-income children and youth, including those with a refugee background, in the summer of 2023. In order to cover the costs of these free camp experiences, a crowdfunding campaign was organized in spring 2023 through Mesenaatti. Unfortunately, it did not reach the minimum funding goal. As a result, we are only able to offer a very limited number of free camp experiences. The fund also support the participation of children's guardians, support persons, interpreters, or other necessary individuals in the camps.
You can apply for a free camp experience when you register for the camp or by contacting the camp organizer. Camp registrations are made on Pinskut's own registration portal Pinskupakki at pinskupakki.fi/toiminta/tapahtumat. Camp registrations may specifically state whether supported camp participation is possible at that camp, but you can also ask the camp organizer directly about this possibility. Low-income families can apply for a free camp experience with a free-form application. The application will either be included in the Pinskupakki registration or sent by mail according to the instructions of the camp organizer.
The supported camp experience includes accommodation, transport, program, food and covering the maintenance costs of a possible camp interpreter. The camp participant is responsible for acquiring their own necessary support person, interpreter etc and must be provided to the camp organizer upon registration.
