A camp-based programme for 12-13 year-olds, lasting either 8 or 15 days

The first Youth Meeting was held in 1969.

CISV Youth Meetings are international camps that bring 12-13 year olds together to learn from each other.

Youth Meeting delegations come from eight countries and are comprised of four young people who are accompanied by an adult leader.  The camp is planned and run by the adult staff and leaders.
