The International Astronomical Youth Camp (IAYC) is a three-week long summer camp aiming to promote knowledge of astronomy and related sciences in a unique international atmosphere.

The IAYC is an experience unlike any other; a place for unforgettable memories and lifelong friendships. Young and enthusiastic students come together from all corners of the world, aged between 16 and 24. The camp hosts around 65 participants for three weeks in a remote location, with access to some of the most spectacular skies you may have ever seen.

    I definitely recommend going! I have been at the IAYC for the last 6 years and it has changed my life in so many wonderful ways. I have learnt so much, not just about astronomy, but about people from all over the world and what it is like to be human beings looking up at the universe together.
