Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund – APPLICATIONS FOR 2023 HAVE CLOSED

​​​​​​​​​The Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund (CSEF) provides payments for eligible students to attend activities like:

  • school camps or trips
  • swimming and school-organised sport programs
  • outdoor education programs
  • excursions and incursions.

Families holding a valid means-tested concession card or temporary foster parents are eligible to apply. A Special Consideration category also exists. Schools can receive applications from families over term one and two. Families can list more than one student in the one application form if they are attending the same school. For the purposes of CSEF, students may be eligible for assistance if they attend a registered Victorian school. Typically, these students are aged between five and 18 years. School is compulsory for all Victorian children aged between six and 17 years of age. CSEF is not payable to students attending pre-school, kindergarten, TAFE or who are home schooled.

Payments amounts for 2023 are:

  • $125 per year for eligible primary school students

The CSEF payment cannot be used towards voluntary school charges, books, stationery, school uniforms, before/after school care, music lessons, or formals/graduations.
