Passport Camp is now over! What a great camp, cant wait for next year! Stay tuned for upcoming dates, to be planned.
What is Passport Camp?
Passport Camp is a week-long summer day camp for children aged 6-10. Children “travel” the world, exploring other countries and cultures through hands-on activities, games, art, stories, food, and guest speakers. Passport Camp provides a glimpse into the activities and curriculum experienced in a CISV Village, CISV’s international travel program for children aged 11. Participants develop familiarity with other cultures and expand their horizons while experiencing CISV games and inclusive philosophy.
True to a CISV Village experience, members of CISV Maine’s Junior Branch volunteer for Passport Camp as Junior Counselors (JCs). These youth, aged 15-21, are actively involved in the chapter’s local service programs and activities. Many have traveled with CISV summer programs and have met CISV participants from all over the world. JC’s share their own CISV experiences and lead the children in games, activities, and “energizers,” a favorite of all children!
Passport Camp is part of the CISV Maine Mosaic Program. Mosaic Programs bring CISV’s values of peace education and global friendship home to our local community. They provide a fun and safe environment for children to learn what it means to be global citizen, living harmoniously with others by sharing resources and ideas.
