Menniste-Bouwers-Federatie was a Dutch Mennonite association for Mennonite youth (12-18 years), founded at Amsterdam in 27 March, 1948. The purpose of the association was to get the children of Mennonites together in special meetings, where they were entertained by various activities, such as sports (also camping) and games. The association was divided into a number of districts and local groups, which were found in 20 congregations. The total membership in 1956 numbered about 1,000.
