This is the website for the Philatelic Youth Council (PYC) of New Zealand. The Council's mission is to promote Youth Philately throughout New Zealand and to encourage youth stamp collecting and exhibiting in general.


The PYC manages and moderates national achievement awards for youth philatelists from bronze to gold level. It also publishes a quarterly Fun Philately newsletter.


PYC sponsors a stamp camp each year for youth club members who are looking to advance from stamp collecting into stamp exhibiting.
