Embracing cultural diversity

Everyone needs a break from the things they care about the most, even Millennium Youth campers. At the international evenings everyone gets to present their own cultures to the others. These cavalcades of different cultures is one of the highlights of the camp.

The International evenings of the Millennium Youth Camp must be one of the rare events where the entire crowd volunteers without hesitation to learn traditional dances, taste mysterious and strange treats and to enjoy to the fullest glimpses of cultures worldwide.

Each of the campers presents something special or unique about their country through pictures, stories, music, dance or by any other means they like. As there are 59 campers and nearly 30 countries to cover, the result is a talent show that guarantees a smile on everyone’s face.

Congratulations and a great big thank you to this year’s amazing campers who bravely took the stage and completely owned the international evenings!
