Lions Clubs International Youth Camp and Exchange Program

  • Crimson Education
  • Australia
Summer Program


The Lions International Youth Exchange Program was established in 1961 to give youth an opportunity to travel to exciting international destinations for up to 6 weeks.

Whilst overseas, the youth live with one or more families associated with Lions International to experience first-hand a new culture, lifestyle and customs. Unlike some exchange programs, the Lions Youth Exchange Program does not involve tourism, academic studies or employment.

The aim of the program is to create and foster a spirit of understanding among the peoples of the world by:

  • bringing young people into contact with youth and adults of other countries;
  • experiencing family and community life of another culture;
  • promoting international understanding and goodwill throughout the world of Lionism.
