CONNECT, a journey of exploration, learning and creativity is designed to strengthen connections amongst global youth. 

The camp will offer opportunities for youth to make friends from around the world, engage in cultural exchange, learn new skills, explore the AKDN, collaborate on creative projects, dialogue about current issues, and build for the future.
