Christchurch Youth Stamp Club - Overview

The Christchurch Youth Stamp Club holds its meetings every 3rd Saturday of the month from 2pm to 3:30pm.

Meetings are held in the Philatelic Centre, 67 Mandeville Street, Riccarton, Christchurch. Doors are open from 1pm.

The Christchurch Youth stamp Club is open to anybody from 6 to 20 years old who is interested in stamp collecting. We collect stamps for the fun of it.

We have a programme to teach stamp collecting from basics to international exhibiting standard.  Sometimes seminars are held during the school holidays and an annual camp rotates yearly around the main centres, usually held in the first week of the July School holidays. The annual subscription is $8.00
