Information about participating in the lottery:

  • You can participate in the draw using the form on Protu’s website. Filling out the form requires a previously created user account. A user account can be created either by a guardian or a young person. A user account is always created with your own information. If the user is under 18 years of age, the form asks for the guardian’s contact information at the same time, in which case the guardian’s own user account will also be created (or if the guardian’s account already exists with the email provided to the guardian, a connection will be made between the young person’s account and the guardian’s account). Both the camper and the guardian must have their own separate email address as their username.

  • The form is available in Finnish, Swedish and English.

  • The same young person can apply to the camp with only one application (the application can be made either by the guardian of a child under 18 or by the camper himself). If more than one application has been filled out for the same camper, all applications can be rejected.

  • Young people participating in the draw are required to familiarize themselves with and commit to Protu’s safer space policy as well as camp practices and rules in advance. This includes agreeing to the terms of sending home. At the camp, the leader team is responsible for respecting the rules.

  • The form is used to select the camps in which the young person wants to participate in the draw. The raffle participant can freely choose whether he wants to participate in the raffle for all camps or whether he chooses the camps according to, for example, equipment, accessibility, time, place or area

  • With the form, it is possible to prioritize themed camps, English-language international camps and Swedish-language camps. It is also possible to prioritize campsites. Prioritizing camps does not reduce the chances of winning a place for other camps (ie, for example, prioritizing a theme camp does not reduce the chances of winning a place for a regular youth camp).

  • The form has the option to report the need for information to the special assistant at the camp.

  • If there are two siblings in the family (e.g. twins) who want to go to the same type of camp (youth camp or sennu camp), who only want to receive a camp place if both get to the camp, they must fill out one common form. In this case, both can use the same form to win a place together either for the same camp or at a different place or at a different time, depending on the announcement. In this case, separate forms for the raffle are not filled out for siblings. If both can receive a camping spot without the other getting a camping spot, they can participate in the draw using separate forms. In this case, they are not drawn together, but separately (i.e. the win of one sibling does not affect the draw result of the other sibling).

  • Unfortunately, due to the large number of applicants, it is not possible to wish to enter the same camp with a friend, and therefore there is no friend request on the form.

  • You can win a maximum of one camping spot in the draw.

  • You can cancel a camping spot won in the lottery, but you can’t change it to another.

  • The camp fee is paid only after the draw when registering for the camp (after receiving information from the office about the received camp place). The camp fee can be paid by bank or credit card payment or by invoice. Those in a financially disadvantaged position are entitled to a discount on the camp fee, which is €90. This can be selected when registering for the camp. Families in a particularly weak financial situation can apply for a special discount.
