BRUSSELS LIONS YOUTH CAMP 2018 2 HISTORY Created in 1961, Youth Camp & Exchange (YCE) is one of Lions International’s longest running service programs. It was designed in response to Lions third purpose – to create and foster a spirit of understanding among the peoples of the world. Districts and multiple districts that sponsor youth to go abroad, host youth in their own country, organise camps, or all of the above demonstrate their dedication to promoting peace and global understanding.

The Lions International Youth Camp and Exchange Program is life-changing. Participants have a unique cultural learning experience wether in their own country or travelling to another, living as individual with a host family and taking part in a camp where a larger group of these young adults are living together for two weeks and further explore the environnement and the country. This program is fully funded by Lions Belgium & Luxemburg, its districts and local clubs. The participation is free of charge for the campers.

The activities that fulfill the objectives of the program, which are to : • Bring people form different countries into meaningful contact with each other • Permit the sharing of ideas, ideals and cultural viewpoints • Promote international understanding and goodwill, and work towards the goals of world peace and human understanding • Encourage respect in young people for the thinking of others. The activities program that we offer will be a mixture of getting to discover Belgium and Luxemburg during visits to its main cities (i.e. Liège, Brussels, Luxemburg, Antwerp ) and places (Sea side, Mines, etc…) and sportive activities and games.

There are 35 campers with 22 different nationalities ! “MEETING AT THE HEART OF EUROPE IN BRUSSELS LIONS YOUTH CAMP 2018”
