Face the North will be postponed to summer 2021 – online camp in July 2020

We are sorry to inform you that because of the covid-19 outbeak, we have decided to postpone Face the North – the Nordic camp. This decision was made during a meeting with the Nordic Children and Youth Committee on 2. April 2020. The camp will be held a year later in summer 2021. 

Because of the postponing we have decided to make an exception that  all the participants who have registered this year, are allowed to take part to the camp when it’s held even if they are over the age limit in that time. 

Instead of the physical camp we will organize some virtual camp program in july 2020. More information later. 

Regards,

Camp managers Alli and Enni 

Face the North and COVID-19

The worldwide pandemic has unfortunately some effects on our upcoming camp: 

  1. Registration (and cancellation) period is extended: until the end of May

    By then we hope to have some estimations of how the pandemic will be on the summer – right now there are restrictions on domestic and international travel in Finland that will last at least until 19. April. 
  2. Camp fee will be collected on June

    Original plan was to collect the fees after the registration is over and that plan still stands. We hope that by the end of May the situation will be clearer.  
  3. If we have to cancel or postpone the camp 

    We will inform you instantly if we have to cancel or postpone the camp. Latest in the end of May 2020. We will make the decision before we start to collect camp fees.  

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us 🙂

Take care and wash your hands!

LINKKI LOMAKKEESEEN

Leirin hinta on 300e ja se kattaa täysihoidon ja matkat leirin aikana sekä leiriohjelman. Suomen NNKY ja NMKY tukevat omia lähtijöitään leirimaksussa.

Matkustaminen Saariselälle tapahtuu pääsääntöisesti omakustanteisesti, kysy omasta paikallisyhdistyksestä kimppakyytejä/yhteiskuljetusta.

Leiriläiseksi hyväksytään 12-17-vuotiaat. Leirin kielenä on englanti, eli auttava kielitaito on eduksi. Johtajakoulutukseen voivat hakea 17-18-vuotiaat.
