THIRTY-FIVE young people from 15 different countries were at the Peter Faust Dam in Proserpine on Saturday as the Lions Youth Exchange camp kicked off.

The camp began with an introductory barbecue and day of fun on the water with members from the Proserpine Lions, Bowen Lions and Proserpine Lionesses donating their time to help run the camp.

Camp director Sue Riddick said everyone involved got a lot out of the camp.

"They are a terrific bunch of kids and it's great that they will get to experience Proserpine and the Whitsundays this week. The camp is the culmination of their three-week stay in Australia where they have been hosted by a number of families right across Australia." The campers will be visiting the Great Barrier Reef, Conway National Park, Whitehaven Beach and Bowen as well as spending time in Proserpine.

Proserpine Lions member Damien Mott said the youth were chosen by their respective Lions clubs around the world.

"Lions camps are held all over the world and the international youth exchange camp is a great chance to show off our area."
