Your child and CISV

Taking part in a CISV educational program is an experience that will have a powerful and positive impact on your child for life. They will have the opportunity to make lasting friendships with other children from around the world in a fun, safe environment.

The positive impact of meeting and making friends with children from other countries and cultures cannot be overestimated. Your child will gain a global perspective and come to understand their part in our global community.

While we put an emphasis on fun and friendship, at the core of everything we do is our aim to educate and inspire young people to realise their full potential. The curriculum in each of our programs is age-appropriate and delivered using our informal, “learning by doing” approach. We will help your child to develop an “anything is possible” attitude, leadership and communication skills and an understanding of the world around them.

Our standards

CISV has over 60 years experience of organizing camp-based programs for children and young people. You can be assured of the high quality of supervision and care we take with our youngest participants.
