CANA... 1,2,3! is a non-profit undertaking and we request a contribution corresponding to the cost of running the programme including accomodation, catering and materials for the couple's programme and children's activities.

With CANA there is no fixed price, but a "range" of participation in the costs so that everyone can give what seems fair according to their means. The cost of running the course is about €700 per couple and €800 per family. We request a €100 deposit on registration and details of how to pay the rest will be given during the course.

Money shouldn’t be a hindrance – Contact us if you have difficulties.
