IAYC – The International Astronomical Youth Camp is a fantastic opportunity for 16-24 year olds. Every year the camp takes place in a different European country and is a wonderful way to meet students from all over the world whilst delving into a research project. The IAYC is so addictive that I have attended 6 camps thus far – it will be my 7th camp this year!

Hi, could you tell me if it’s possible to attend the IAYC camp if you turn 16 a month after the camp, or would you have to wait till next year?
You’d have to wait, as it says in the FAQ: https://iayc.org/faq/
Alright, thanks so much!
