Julien C. Hyer Youth Camp

jchyer

The Julien C. Hyer International Youth Camp represents a group of students from countries around the world that participate in a six-week program to expose them to life in Texas through stays in Dallas/Fort Worth, Lake Texoma, San Antonio and Lubbock to promote peace and understanding.

The Julien C. Hyer Lions Youth Camp Board meets at 10:00 AM on the 3rd Saturday of each month (except Nov., Dec., Feb. and July) at the On the Border Mexican Grill and Cantina, 1890 S, Stemmons Fwy, I-35E, Lewisville.  

 

History of the Camp

The Julien C. Hyer Lions Youth Camp was organized in 1973 and the first camping session was held in 1974. Each year an average of 30 youths (boys and girls) has visited Texas to attend the Julien Hyer Camp. During this time the program has changed slightly but the objective “to foster and create a spirit of understanding among the peoples of the world” remains the same. This Camp gives each attending youth the opportunity to learn about other peoples of the world while visiting Texas and the United States of America.

The Camp is named in honor of Past International President Lion Judge Julien C. Hyer (1931/1932). He was an active Lion for 55 years and distinguished himself as Lion, Attorney, Judge, Writer, Poet, Theologian, Soldier, Father, Husband and as the Founder of the Lions Clubs International Youth Exchange Program. His friendship and love for others is living testimony of the Great Spirit of Lionism. In recognition of our love and respect for him and his priciples, we dedicate this camp, the Julien C. Hyer Lions Youth Camp, in his honor.
