While based on the same educational principles as CISV’s camp-based program, Interchange encourages a deeper encounter between two cultures by placing young people within families. Group activities during the exchange, such as a mini-camp, are a vital complement to the in-depth family experience.
Interchange takes place in two ‘phases’ – your child joins a delegation that visits another country and is hosted there by a CISV family. Then in return you and your family host a child from the delegation from the country your child visited. Interchange exchanges give your whole family the chance to experience another culture and make new friends and to be part of your local CISV community.
This interchange is a Short Program, taking place in two 2-week sessions in a single summer, and is open to youth who will be 12 or 13 years old in summer 2020.
