The YMCA International Center
The YMCA International Center of the Chiangmai YMCA has over 15 years experience in bringing young people together from all over the world to participate in a dynamic exchange program.

Our experiences in organizing international youth camps with various groups from Korea, Singapore, Germany, USA., and Japan make the YMCA of Chiangmai and international leader in youth exchange programs.
For more than a decade, international youth groups have visited the YMCA of Chiangmai to learn about current existing socio-economic problems in the country. These groups work together with local Thai youths on various aspects of rural and urban community development. During these work service camps, the young visitors and their Thai counterparts stay together in the homes of host families in the village or city.
For the past several years, we have worked in association with the Pack-Squadran, a military encampment. Practicing jungle tactics and survival camping, we challenge youth in new and amazing ways. This fascinating relationship has reserved as a model to many organizations in Thai military and civilian relationship.
