A camp-based programme for 17-18 year olds, lasting 21 days

The first Seminar Camp was held in 1959

This personally challenging, intensive programme is coordinated by the young participants themselves. 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 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 programme. 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.
