The World Camp runs for four weeks during the month of July. It consists of programs and training directed at overcoming themselves. These programs usually include heaps of entertaining episodes. Around two thousand students from forty different countries had participated in last years 7th IYF World Camp (2004). Meetings and relationships from all over the world ripen while they experience the breathtaking natural scenery of Korea, main industrial facilities, military bases, one-day military experience, diverse cultural presentations, lectures, sightseeing, short marathons, sports competitions and various other programs. Whether they are American or Russian, problems of the youth basically have the same characteristics though their images may differ. IYF gives its all to teach about things that cannot be taught by parents and education, namely the "realm of the heart and self-control.
As the participants realize this beautiful realm through heart-to-heart fellowship, they experience a closeness of the heart beyond boundaries. We feel IYF is moving within some invisible providence. These participating students once trapped by the narrow framework of their minds can be freed into becoming born again workers who can give up their lives for the truth. As these students turn from lives invested in selfish desires and momentary joy, they become people of great purpose. International exchange arises from true meanings. The next generation has already been drawn out in the blueprint of IYF.
