WHAT EARLIER PARTICIPANTS SAY ABOUT YOUTH LEGEND CAMP?

  • It was a really interesting experience. I really gained insight into myself. Joining the Youth Legend Summer Camp, I had no idea what to expect and by the end, I knew it was one of the best decisions I have made.

    I met many energetic and passionate young people whom I connected with deeply. I gained a better understanding of Nepali culture and a better understanding of myself as a person. I never wanted the camp to end! DMT really gave me some reflective time that I needed because I don’t always give myself that space to think about all the important questions in life.

  • Nowadays, It’s really tough to trust the programs advertised and propagated online. Moreover, when it comes to foreign camps, it becomes tougher.

    I came to know about this camp via online. There were really good details provided about this camp. I wasn’t expecting this camp to be as per the description. Well, it happened exactly the same. The camp wasn’t as per my expectation rather it was beyond.

    The organizers were not just hospitable but also too friendly. Whenever we wanted anything they provided that when we went outside for shopping they even made a bargain with the shopkeepers. They made us visit the places which were one of the most famous and safe. Even sometimes we were late as per schedule yet they managed all the events so that they can go smoothly.

    I personally was worried about the luggage which we were leaving behind in the hotels/ restaurants for traveling and hiking. But everything was safe and in place. I must praise the organizers because they arranged things in such a way that we don’t get bored with the games that we played while traveling.

    They were aware of the global situation that is why they arranged seminars on SDGs and Youth Leadership. In the conclusion, I’d like to suggest that if anyone is interested to attend a camp or events like this in the foreign country then he/she should choose the events under Youth Legend. You will not regret rather you’ll write a review like this too.

  • The dance movement therapy was memorable. The time we danced with newspapers with closed eyes was a defining moment during the camp.

    The camp was such an eye-opening experience that helped me learn a lot about Nepal.
    It was an amazing experience and I would definitely like to return to Nepal to join the hike to Everest Base Camp.

  • I like Travel part most, of course, as I’m a traveler.
    However, I appreciate the chance to get to know the Nepali youth during a cultural exchange and Dance Movement Therapy.

    I learned more about Nepal’s culture and how young people from another country thinking and doing.
    I feel lucky to get a chance to join this camp and I learned many new things.
    I give my thanks and appreciations to Sudha and Mohan for all things you guys did for me also others members.

    I hope you guys can have more camps with more exciting activities in future and be successful in transferring your knowledge and your fire to young Nepali as well as young people from others countries.

  • I learned many elements to master my temperament and become a better person. I can apply these tricks whenever I second guess myself.

    My main motivation is to learn to lead by example so with the best practices taught in the camp, I would be able to do that eventually.

    Youth Legend is a cool social enterprise that allows for self improvement, cultural immersion, awareness and tolerance. Being surrounded by the beauty of Nepal is a plus.

    Katrina Baraquiel, Australia
  • This program is a perfect opportunity for youth. The beyond-compared accommodation, beautiful destinations, value-laden people and unique yet interesting practices.

    This program also helped us to discover a bit more of our own identities and to learn how to handle stressful circumstances and life’s adversities.

  • I feel renewed and confident. DMT brought me joy and peace and helped me focus on my life and priorities. Traveling to different part of Nepal was an adventure, specially chitwan felt like going into the wild.

    Well organized event. I will recommend this camp to other youths especially to learn and live without stress. My memorable moments during camp was Dance Movement Therapy, Yoga and Meditation, Rafting and Camping in Tents.

    Benjamin Talima, Uganda
  • “I believe that every part of the camp is worthwhile. Hiking and meditating was very rewarding, fresh and great experience. My most memorable moment is Elephant riding in Chitwan and boating, paragling, walking to sunset point in Pokhara. I want more people to experience this wonderland Nepal.

    And It is true to say that for young people, having such great friends like you guys as companions is a good opportunity to make their time in Nepal unforgettable. I believe youth legend camp can help camp participant make the best out of their trip to Nepal.”
