We know that some people cannot afford these prices. We encourage groups to raise funds to support their own members. The Iona Community has an access fund to help those resident in the UK who would not otherwise be able to come. Subsidies, including towards cost of travel, may be available. We encourage group leaders or individuals to apply for this via the Camas Coordinator.  We want all people to be able to come to Camas, and will offer what support we can.

We offer a 50% reduction to the following UK residents:

  • students in full time education
  • people whose only income is from state benefits or a state pension
  • people paid beneath the real living wage (£9.50/hour)
  • those who are homeless, a refugee or asylum seeker

We offer a 15% reduction to families of four or more. This is included in the prices on our booking system.
