This includes fees paid to SYG to run the event, camping site, transport and food. We understand this may be a large cost for some families. Please speak to pastor John if you need assistance with payment as we are seeking help from others in our church to help subsidise costs. There are also discounts available for multiple children in one family attending (see below).
· Early bird registration: Sports Participants who register before the 3rd April will receive a $20 discount.
· Families with multiple children attending receive a $15 discount on the 2nd child and a $30 discount on the 3rdchild.
A non-refundable deposit of $90 is due by the 5th May with the balance being due by the 26th May.
Payments can be made via
Cheque (make payable to Bairnsdale Baptist Church)
Direct Deposit. BSB: 063-501 A/C: 906445 (Bairnsdale Baptist Church)
If paying by direct deposit to the church account please note “YG SYG” in the reference field and send Geoff a text or email so the deposit is recorded.
The actual cost of attending SYG works out higher than the fees being charged. The difference is covered by fundraising and the generous support of the church. We ask for your support with our fundraising efforts. More details soon.
You are required to have as a minimum 1 team t-shirt to wear while at SYG. A new design has been created this year however, those with the old design are still welcome to use them.
This year we are also going to offer the option of ordering hoodies and long sleeve t-shirts for those who would like them. Costs for these items are as follows
Long sleeve T-shirt $30
The clothing order is included in the camp registration form. Click here for rough picture of the clothing design.
As mentioned above, your sports preferences are registered online. Once your preferences are loaded the leaders may need to make some alterations to complete teams for team events or due to logistical reasons. Where possible we will try to give you your first preference as well as give you an opportunity at both team and individual sports.
Given the size of the event the best advice here is to make your sports selections as quickly as possible. Most of the sports are done on a first in basis.
To assist with the planning for our campsite, can you please let us know what your camping preference is? Ie.
