A camp-based programme for 16-17 year olds, lasting 21 days

The first Seminar Camp was held in 1959.

This challenging, intensive programme is coordinated by the young participants. They develop their own agenda and explore global issues based on their backgrounds and interests through activities and in-depth discussions.

Seminar Camps are for 24 or 30 international participants, with the supervision and assistance of international adult staff.

Joining a Seminar Camp puts you in the driving-seat, planning and leading the programme with fellow participants. 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.
