100 First Times | International Youth Summer Camp
Where: Kaunas and Kaunas District
When: July 7th-15th, 2018


There’s always a first time for everything. What about us and 99 more first times in the middle of the summer? That’s 100 chances for you to feel free, implement new ideas, make a step forward, face some fears, cope with critique, challenge restrictions or question rules thrown by others.


It’s an international youth summer camp, a co-creative platform for younger generations in 2018, year of the 100th anniversary of the restoration of Lithuania as an independent state, organised by Kaunas 2022 | European Capital of Culture.

Our biggest aim here is to foster an inclusive environment where hospitality, shared responsibility and creativity can set the foundation for future communities. We invite You to inspire Kaunas and Kaunas district with 100 new opportunities for a better living together during its International Youth Summer Camp.

At the confluence of the mighty rivers Nemunas and Neris, Kaunas, the second city in Lithuania, together with its green emerald Kaunas District, is a multi-layered crossroad where everybody is invited to connect and contribute!


We want to host 100 Kaunasians, Lithuanians or Global Citizens who are willing to create 100 first times in creative and powerful ways for Kaunas and Kaunas District. We are looking for participants who are curious to explore Kaunas District with its centre Kaunas from a fresh approach. We are seeking young people who are especially excited to connect with new ideas and to collaborate with each other towards shared goals: uplifting energy, enthusiasm, desire for discovery, respect for others, mutual understanding and creativity.
