CISV is a camp designed to 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 has two boys and two girls, accompanied by an adult leader. The camp is coordinated by adult staff, supported by Junior Counsellors (age 16-17).

A Village creates a safe, fun setting in which children learn, with children from around the world, about each other’s lives and cultures and how to communicate, cooperate and live together. The Village learning experiences, and the friendships made, last a lifetime.”
