The first Youth Meeting was held in 1969.
Youth Meetings bring small groups of young people, of similar ages together from different countries within a region.
Delegation Youth Meetings are for 35 participants, coordinated by adult staff. Young people travel in delegations with an adult leader. Generally, five country delegations consisting of 6 youth and a leader attend. The camp is either for youth aged 12-13 or 14-15.
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 or community. As with all of our programs, you will find there is an emphasis on friendship and fun!
