Early life experiences shape the way we see the world. CISV Villages are international camps that inspire children to imagine a more just and peaceful world. Children come together from many different countries to take part in a variety of educational, cultural and fun activities. A Village creates a safe setting in which children from around the world learn about each other’s lives and how to communicate, cooperate and live together. The Village learning experiences, and the friendships made, often last a lifetime.

10 – 12 delegations from 10 – 12 countries each made up of 2 boys and 2 girls age 11 with an adult leader 21+ for 28 days in a camp setting.

The Village programme goals are:
  • Develop intercultural competence
  • Build an inclusive community through friendship
  • Develop positive attitudes towards others
  • Develop an interest in peace education
