A camp-based program for 11 year-olds

The first Village, our original program, was held in 1951.

CISV Villages are international camps that inspire eleven-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 Counselors (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.

Find out more about your child and CISV and what sending your child to a CISV program will mean for you and your family. 

With over 40 years experience of organizing family-based exchanges for children and teenagers, you can be assured of the highest level of supervision and safety for your child. Read more about our child safety policy.
