My Mini-Camp Experience
By Edel McGhee Hassrick
Chapter Mini Camp was an incredible bonding experience with the rest of my chapter. I got to see old friends, strengthen bonds with others and create bonds with new people.
The activities were eye-opening, well structured, organized and fun. My favorite activity was the Planetarium Activity and also the Casino Silent Activity. The Planetarium Activity was a three-stage activity where we had to observe, interact and assist an alien culture meet their objective so they would give us fuel so we could get back to earth. The casino silent activity was a dice game with movements depending on the group. I learned how to respond to different situations and solve problems in diverse situations with people who were different from me. Both were really well developed and expertly executed as were all of the activities we did at CMC.
Chapter mini-camp, our first CISV experience
By chaperone Alena Abrosimova, mother of Alex, 10.
Both Alex and I were impressed with the camp and what JB team was able to accomplish in a day and a half. All of our chaperons and JB advisor Fatima were absolutely great. We had many nice discussions and shared a lot of useful tips and information with each other.

OCTOBER 6-7: MINI CAMP.
Don’t miss this mini camp! Bring your friends, as this is a great opportunity to introduce them to CISV.
We will have a table to promote CISV at COMMUNITY FAIR at George Washington High School on Saturday, September 29, 2018. Philadelphia Mayor Kennedy will attend, so we expect the media to be there around 11:30am. Thanks to our JB advisor, Fatimah Mitchell, for putting this together. If you are able to attend and help Fatimah, please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
JBers are getting the word out
JB leaders were at a street fair in Horsham recently and talked with 250 people about CISV!
What a great summer!
We had awesome leaders for our Village in Dallas, Interchange programs with Austria and Brazil, and for our local Step Up program here in Philadelphia.
Parents and friends pitched in to pick up Step Up participants at the airport, host the two weekends, find donations, and ensure a fun, educational and safe experience of all involved. And in 2019 we’ll have a chance to do this again when we host Village.
CISV is only possible through the outstanding efforts by both adult and JB leaders as we host programs, create selection committees, hold fundraisers, promote the program in schools, and reach out to amazing young adults who get trained as leaders and get to know our kids.
Chris and Carolyn Davis took charge as Co-Presidents for 2017-2018, and Sabine Oberach is our Chapter President for this year with support from many others.
Cookie-A-Thon is the JB’s annual “lock-in” event where Philly JB-ers come to stay overnight and bake cookies for a great cause! The JB will be donating the cookies to The Breathing Room for their annual holiday outreach for patients with cancer. The JB Board will also have a bunch of other fun activities planned for the group.
What to bring:
- Overnight clothes/PJ’s
- sleeping bag
- $5 donation to Hurricane Relief in Puerto Rico
- A snack to share with the group
- $5 gift for the gift exchange/White Elephant
