Many of you may be aware of CISV, and I bet a lot of you know people who have attended one of their summer villages over the years. For over 50 years, this program has been sending a delegation of 11 year old kids from 12 countries around the world for a month long camp. During the camp, they all do team building and peace building exercises. I sent my daughter to one last year and it was a life changing experience. Check them out at There may be a chapter near you!

Right now the local chapters are looking for kids who will be 11 next summer to attend Villages next summer. They also have similar programs for older kids. It is really a very special program.
