Kids are sponges. The people they meet and places they go leave an indelible mark. That’s why the Lions International Youth Camp and Exchange Program is so precious. With their host family, youths soak up another culture and realize differences among peoples are superficial. At a Lions international youth camp they laugh, play and share small talk with peers worldwide. The exchange changes them and stays in their hearts when they return home. Forty nations hold exchange programs and 38 nations host 112 Lions camps. The camps cater to all kinds of kids including a Sound of Music Camp in the Swiss Alps, a service-oriented camp in Uganda and the sun-splashed Hawaii Lions International Youth Camp (cover photo). Lions are proud of their international character, and the experiences overseas sow international good will and understanding.
