  • FORMS!About CISV Minicamps CISV International is a global organization dedicated to educating and inspiring peace through building inter-cultural friendship, cooperation and understanding. Our mini camps are innovative, fun, non-formal ‘learning by doing’ programs that illustrate CISV’s purpose and values of friendship, inclusiveness, enthusiasm, and cooperation.  At the minicamp after a process of getting to know each other through “name games,” we will explore our own uniqueness through activities designed for that purpose.  Saturday will be a full day with 4-5 activities surrounding this theme.  Each activity will be followed by a “debrief” where we discuss our “attitudes, skills and knowledge” that have been changed or influenced by the activity.
  • For any other questions, just e-mail us. We are happy to help.
