The Executive Office, in partnership with the Education Authority, are inviting applications from groups who wish to deliver a Camp, as part of the T:BUC Camps Programme in 2019-2020. The application process opens on Thursday 22nd November 2018 at 4pm and closes on Thursday 31st January 2019 at 4pm.

 

The T:BUC Camps Programme is one of the headline actions described in the Together: Building a United Community strategy.  The programme is about building positive relations among young people across all parts of our community and must have ‘good relations’ at the core of them.  Camps must be held between 1 April 2019 and 29 February 2020, they are not limited to the traditional summer period and can take place throughout the year. 

 

Applications are invited from;

  • Registered  youth organisations
  • Bona fide voluntary and community organisations including (churches, sports groups, art groups)
  • Schools
  • Regional organisations
  • District Councils

 

Young people taking part in the camp must be aged between 11 and 19 years.  Each camp must be run on a cross community basis and consist of three phases.

  • Pre camp engagement
  • Camp
  • Post camp engagement
