The leader must keep an accurate account of all expenditures (for each child and the delegation) and this should be shared with the parents.
CHILDREN PERSONAL SPENDING MONEY
Pocket money should be an equal amount for all children in a delegation. A specified equal amount for all participants should be stressed in the Pre Camp Information. Certain delegations (because of necessity, cultural practices, etc.) might bring more money: this does not have to be a reason of visible disparity between participants.
Children personal spending money is for use during the program (camp shop, excursions, shopping days, family weekends). Children don’t usually pay directly at the camp shop but an account of all expenditures is kept and paid later (usually once a week). All the money and valuables should be given by the leader to the staff for safekeeping.
TRAVEL FUNDS OF THE DELEGATION
Payments of meals, taxis, etc. en route to and back from the “meeting point” for the program are the responsibility of the delegate, so each child should have spending money to cover.
Each family needs to provide the leader with $200 for an “emergency fund” – a sum of money provided by the parents to meet emergencies requiring immediate payment. This money will be returned to the parents when the delegation returns from the program if it is not used.
