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. It provides a glimpse into the CISV Village program that starts at age 11. Passport Camp participants learn the CISV games and philosophy while expanding their own horizons through exposure to other cultures.
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 CISV locally. Many have traveled with CISV summer programs and have met CISVers 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 a CISV Maine Mosaic Program. Mosaic Programs bring CISV’s values of peace education and global friendship home to our local community. We 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.
