Camp info


Cost to attend SYG this year as part of BBYouth is as follows 

Sports Participant    $220  ($200 early bird)

Team Helper           $140  ($120 early bird)


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 8th 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 3rd child. 



A non-refundable deposit of $100 is due by the 3rd May with the balance being due by the 23rd May.

Payments can be made via 

  • Cheque (make payable to Bairnsdale Baptist Church)

  • Cash

  • 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 John 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. 



Team Clothing

You are required to have as a minimum 1 team t-shirt to wear while at SYG. After you register we will email out a clothing form. Many will already have clothing from last year so they won't need to order more clothing but are welcome to.


Costs for these items are as follows

T-shirts                   $25

Long sleeve T-shirt   $30

Hoodies                $40

Beanies                 $20

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.

Camping Requirements

To assist with the planning for our campsite, can you please let us know what your camping preference is? Ie.

  • Planning to bring a swag, tent etc

  • Prefer to be in a team tent (provided by BBY)



In the weeks leading up to SYG we will be finalising transport but please consider whether you (parents) are able to transport any youth to and from SYG. If you are able to help with transport please speak to Jacob or John.


There are also 2 options in regards to when you leave for SYG. 


·       Option 1 (preferred): Meet at the church 9am on Friday. 

·       Option 2: Meet at the church before 4pm on Friday. 


The early group will set up camp when they arrive at Lardner Park. The opening ceremony for SYG starts at 9pm.
