CISV Singapore has just completed our first ever Village!
First of all, we would like to convey a HUGE thank you to our dearest host families, volunteers, staff and participants, for without any of your efforts; our Village wouldn’t have the success it has. The village was from 6th July till 3rd August and we had participants from a total of 12 countries, namely: Canada, Costa Rica, Denmark, Spain, Vietnam with a total of 47 kids along with 6 Junior Counsellors from 5 countries.
The first Village, our original programme, was held in 1951.
CISV Villages are international camps that bring 11 years olds together to learn from each other and the world around them. The children come together from many different countries to take part in a variety of educational, cultural and fun activities.
Each Village welcomes delegations from 10-12 countries. Each delegation has two boys and two girls, accompanied by an adult leader. The camp is coordinated by adult staff, supported by Junior Counselors (age 16-17).
A Village creates a safe, fun setting in which your child will learn, with children from around the world, about each others’ lives and cultures and how to communicate, cooperate, and live together. The Village learning experience, and the friendships they make, will last your child a lifetime.
