Youth Meeting (ages 12-19+)

This short-term, regional theme camp is organized to provide an opportunity for young people to explore important intercultural issues and promote continued CISV participation.




The Youth Meeting evolved from the mini-camps arranged by many Chapters as local work activities for their juniors. These proved so successful that their duration was increased during major school holidays. They became first national and then international, and their program content was developed accordingly.


Building skills and regional capacity

The short regional camps feature individual themes that allow young people to explore intercultural issues in a regional context. The program reinforces core CISV values, builds leadership and organizational skills, while promoting continued CISV involvement.
