Interchange (age 12 or 13)

The only family-based CISV program, Interchange encourages a deeper encounter between two cultures. Taking place in two phases, one delegation is hosted by local families, and then, the local delegation is hosted by the foreign delegation in their country. During the two weeks, there is family time, group activities, and mini-camp. We need 3 girls, 3 boys, and an adult leader.

I-2017-026 to Lyon, France, June 29 to July 14 (host), July 18 to August 2, 2017 (travel) TENTATIVE
