Youth Meetings bring small groups of young people, of similar ages together from different countries within a region.

Youth Meetings are for 25-35 participants (aged 12-13, 14-15, 16-18 or 19+), coordinated by adult staff. Young people aged under 16 travel in delegations with an adult leader.

Join a Youth Meeting and explore aspects of a theme that affects us all, such as democracy, and share your perspectives and learn from each other. You will also think about how you can use what you gain from your experience – new understanding and planning and communication skills – beyond the camp in your school, college or community. As with all of our programs, you will find there is an emphasis on friendship and fun!
