The Ventures' Bursary Fund exists to ensure that cost isn't a barrier for any child or young person to attend a Venture.
However, the fund is limited, and we therefore set criteria to ensure we're awarding bursaries to those who are most in need. You can request a grant from the bursary fund for an amount up to one third of the Venture price (more is available for Falcons).
Find out more information about how to apply for a Ventures' bursary.
Please contact the leader of the holiday you would like to attend for more information about Falcon bursaries, or the Ventures and Falcons Office.

New sending group discount
This discount is for children and young people from new sending groups who have not been on a Venture before.
Up to five groups (churches, schools, or youth groups) can be eligible per Venture per year. However, the fund is limited, and discounts will be offered on a first come, first served basis. The criteria are:
-The group has not sent children to any Venture for two years (confirmation is required by the Ventures and Falcons Office).
-A leader in your team has personally contacted a key leader of the group for a conversation about the Venture and this discount.
-The key leader in the group offers the discount to their young people or parents; therefore the group leader is actively promoting the Venture themselves.
If your group is eligible, £75 per child (or £45 for Ventures costing under £170) is available. This discount can be combined* with our normal bursary scheme if necessary. The bursary will be applied to the remaining fee after the discount.
To find out more about our new sending group discount, please contact one of the leaders of the holiday or the Ventures and Falcons Office.
Patronage church discount
CPAS is the patron of over 700 churches, which means we’re involved in appointing vicars with a heart for the gospel when these churches have a vacancy.
We’re very keen to build stronger links between these patronage churches and Ventures, and so the discount is available to children and young people connected with these churches. These patronage churches do not have to fit the criteria of ‘new sending groups’, but the discount is limited to children and young people who haven’t been on a Venture before.
If you would like to check whether a church is a patronage church or not, please contact us at the Ventures and Falcons Office. If your church is eligible, £75 per child (or £45 for Ventures costing under £170) is available. This discount can be combined* with our normal bursary scheme if necessary. The bursary will be applied to the remaining fee after the discount.
To find out more about our patronage church discount, please contact one of the leaders of the holiday or the Ventures and Falcons Office.
