Cost of Contagious

young people costs for 2024

Our prices are all-inclusive. They cover food, accommodation, activities and teaching materials.

bursary fund

We are aware that some may struggle with the fees, so we have a dedicated Bursary Fund to provide financial support for young people, CREW and TEAM.

In 2023, due to the generosity of those giving to the Bursary fund and the support of sending churches we were able to offer Bursary awards totalling £23,831 helping 173 children, young people TEAM and CREW.

I would like to find out more about the Bursary Fund

Applying for a bursary

You are able to apply for Bursary Support during the booking process, by answering ‘yes’ to the question ‘Do you need to apply for a Bursary?’ and answering the questions that follow.

Examples of people who receive Bursary Support from us include those who work for a church or Christian charity on a low income, or who are part of a single-parent household, or those on a low income.

Further Support

Many people who attend Contagious each year have successfully made an application to the David Chilcott fund, who support young people to attend Christian camps. The David Chilcott Fund can provide support for up to a third of the fees of Contagious. Find out more

Many Churches provide financial support to their leaders and young people to attend Contagious. If your church would like to support your young people and leaders it is a great way to help invest in their discipleship. Please email us if you would like to discuss what this might look like for your church.

What we provide

We have been working hard to keep our high standards at affordable rates. Our venues provide high quality accommodation and delicious food that means our young people are well looked after for the six nights of Contagious. All activities (sports/games/craft) and the equipment for them are provided. All the teaching material and resources that we use are also provided.

We deliver good value – an excellent week of Bible teaching, exciting activities and creative opportunities that are supported by our hardworking staff and volunteers.

What our costs include

Around 60% of our fees each year goes towards food and accommodation. This provides 6 nights accommodation at our high quality venues with three cooked meals a day.

A third of the fees go to operational costs – this includes our small hard-working staff team who are employed to prepare for the events and ensure they run smoothly. Operational costs also include our £5m public liability insurance, CCLI licensing fees, membership fees, safeguarding, charity compliance and office costs.

The rest of the fees go into training our CREW and TEAM, teaching resources and all the on-site activities that take place during the Conferences.

EARLY BIRD PRICES FOR TEAM AND CREW

Each year we provide early bird prices for TEAM and CREW.

Super Early Bird rates of £250 are available for TEAM and CREW that book before the end of January 2024.

Early Bird rates of £350 are available for TEAM and CREW that book before the end of April 2024.

We have other ways to provide support for TEAM and CREW who are attending Contagious if this is required.

We ask our TEAM and CREW to pay to attend Contagious as it means that we can lower prices for young people as much as possible.

Spreading the cost

We have chosen a booking system that allows you to make payments over the months before Contagious in order to help with spreading the cost. We have kept deposit prices for young people at £75, you can then choose to pay the total fees straight away or pay them in a custom payment plan that suits you.
