Seminar Camps are for 30 international participants, with the supervision and assistance of international adult staff.

Joining a Seminar Camp puts you in the driving-seat, as with your fellow participants you plan and lead the program. Being part of Seminar Camp’s group-living environment encourages you to take a creative and cooperative approach to problem-solving and resolving differences that can arise from healthy discussion.

Friendship and fun ensure that your Seminar Camp experience is lasting and positive.
