Lions Youth Camp and Exchange Programme

Lions Clubs around the world have had to, unfortunately, suspend the operation of this wonderful scheme for the time being in light of travel restrictions and Covid-19 and so there have been no scheduled trips in 2020. It will return and we will let you know when we are once again accepting applications

I chose to go to Belgium as I had always wanted to see the country, and sure enough, I did. I feel like I saw, and did, everything! From sight-seeing to swimming, Belgian Youth Camp2019go-karting to Gentse Feesten. We explored new cities, perfected the art of eating spaghetti, and even visited Luxembourg. But it was the people who truly made the trip exceptional. I had a brilliant host family, and once at the camp met even more people. There were 37 of us from 24 different countries, as well as the amazing camp coordinators. I learnt about so many different cultures, and I now have friends on (almost) every continent, spanning the world from America to Malaysia. It was an unforgettable 3 weeks, definitely some of the best of my life, and I would like to thank my host family, the Belgian Lions clubs, and the Ringwood & Fordingbridge Lions Club for making it all possible. I would highly recommend partaking in the Lions Youth Exchange program to anyone who has the opportunity.

I have also attached some photos from my trip, and would once again like to thank you for enabling me to go on such an amazing trip.

Many thanks,

Bill D-S
