KUCHING, Sept 24: Kuching Toastmasters Club is expanding its International Youth Camp to include interested parties aged 13 to 22-years-old.

Club president Wee Pei Chai in a statement today said the expansion is in response to requests from parents and keen interest shown by young adults, both local and abroad.

“We have been overwhelmed by the response so far and to cater for the greater than expected number of entries, we have increased the capacity of the Zoom lobby for this first virtual occasion, which is an extension of the previous face to face camps dating back to 2012,” he said.
