A camp-based program for 11-year-olds lasting 28 days
The first Village, our original program, was held in 1951.
CISV Villages are international camps that inspire 11-year-old children to imagine a more just and peaceful world. The children come together from many different countries to take part in a variety of educational, cultural and fun activities.
Each Village welcomes delegations from 10-12 countries. Each delegation typically has two boys and two girls, and is accompanied by an adult leader. The camp is coordinated by adult staff, and supported by Junior Counsellors (age 16-17).
A Village creates a safe, fun setting in which your child will learn, with children from around the world, about each others’ lives and cultures and how to communicate, cooperate and live together. The Village learning experiences, and the friendships made, will last your child a lifetime.
