Camp​s, Sports & Excursion Fund

The Camp, Sports and Excursion Fund (CSEF) was introduced by the state government to support families to meet the financial demands of educating their children. This fund is avaible to eligible families. Please read the information below which was taken from the Victorian Government website:

The Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund (CSEF) commenced in 2015 for four years and provides payments for eligible students to attend camps, sports and excursions.

CSEF applications for 2017 closed at the end of term 2, 2017. The CSEF application process will re-open in term 1, 2018.

Victorian Government Year 7 and Prep students (in 2017) who are CSEF recipients are also automatically eligible for a uniform support. For more information regarding this initiative please see State Schools' Relief.

This $148 million initiative helps ensure all Victorian students can take part in school trips and sporting activities.


Families holding a valid means-tested concession card or temporary foster parents are eligible to apply. $125 per year is paid for eligible primary school students, with $225 per year paid for eligible secondary school students. A special consideration eligibility category also exists. Payments are made directly to the school and are tied to the student.
