Reservations Youth Environment Space

Reservations can be applied for by using the forms of Youth Services. The facilities are rented out based on rates approved by the Youth Committee.

When deciding on reservations, Helsinki-based youth organisations and groups are prioritised. Reservations are free-of-charge for these groups.

You can book a slot using a Youth Services form or in the Varaamo service. Rents approved by the Youth Committee will be applied to premises. The Youth Environment Space is currently searching for new premises. Booking a space at the Laajasalo youth centre is the responsibility of the Southeastern Youth Work Unit. 

However, you can make a booking for the camp and course centres of the Youth Work Unit of Environmental Activities. When awarding slots, priority is given to Helsinki-based youth organisations and youth groups for which bookings are free of charge.

Application period

  • The application period for camp and course activities in 2021 ended on 15 September 2020. You can ask about possible available time slots by contacting service locations directly, starting from 4 January 2021.
