FEDECRAIL Youth Exchange

Since 2007 FEDECRAIL organizes in cooperation with one of its local members an international youth exchange called "FEDECRAIL Youth Camp" to enable young people from museum railays and railway museums in Europe to come together and learn how in other countries the railway heritage is preserved and to foster intercultural understanding and networking between heritage railways throughout Europe. Each year a different country host the Youth Camp.

All young people who are member of a heritage railway society and who aged between 16 and 25 years are invited to attend (participants under 18 will need a Parental Permission). The duration of the Youth Camp is about ten days and the camp takes place during August when in most of the countries are summer holidays. Typically there are about 25 places available, which are inteded to be split evenly between the contries paritcipating if the number of places is exceeded (which never happened so far). The main language at the Youth Camp is English. Therefore at least one English speaking person shall be in the praticipating group from a country.

Below there will be more information about the upcoming Youth Camp:
