We are ready for Mini Camp! Are you? Everything you need to know isin the 2015 mini camp pre-camp
A beautiful video from our friends at CISV Norway:
Village Age 11
The Village is a unique four week international camp that was the original CISV program and is still its flagship. Delegates to this multilingual and multicultural experience participate in a mix of educational, cultural and sporting activities, which emphasize cooperative global and intercultural living.
Vasteras, Sweden June 26, to July 23, 2015. 2 girls & 2 boys, Leader
Bursa, Turkey June 26, to July 23, 2015 2 girls & 2 boys, Leader
Interchange Ages 12-13
Interchange encourages a deeper encounter between two cultures by placing young people within families. Group activities such as a mini-camp are vital in complementing the intense in-depth family experience. Interchange takes place in two phases with one delegation visiting another country and then reciprocating by hosting the delegation from the country they visited. Not only is this a profound intercultural experience for the youth participant, but it also engages the whole family, and potentially the community in which they live, in the CISV experience.
Araquara, Brazil TBD – most likely July 2015 3 girls & 4 boys, Leader
Step Up Age 14 and 15
Aimed at young teens, Step Up encourages participants to take responsibility for leadership and program planning. Each camp focuses on a specific educational theme. Participants work together to plan activities and discussions which build on the chosen theme.
