Programmes - National

JB National Camp

Each summer, during the month of August, an 18+ youth, elected by Canada’s Junior Branch organizes the Junior Branch National Camp, with the assistance of one of CISV Canada’s chapters. National Camp is a six–day programme that is open to youth of all ages. Participants are encouraged to take an active leadership role within the camp.

Following some experiential training in planning, facilitation and evaluation, all participants have the opportunity to plan and facilitate educational activities with small planning groups. National Camp is a dynamic, fun, learning experience for youth of all ages

Peace Bus

The 39 day CISV Canada Peace Bus has traveled across Canada between Victoria and Halifax since Summer 2011, providing youth delegates with a unique opportunity to explore their own country while building leadership, organizational, and interpersonal skills, and actively contributing to various communities. Delegates each take on a high degree of responsibility for planning a component of the group's cross-Canada adventure, which consists of journeying from coast to coast in a "carbon neutral" 15 passenger van, sponsored by Windsor Salt. Delegates camp their way across Canada, visiting CISV chapters and programmes, carrying out community-oriented projects and volunteer initiatives, and organizing and conducting a series of activities and workshops.

Ages & Dates: 15 to 16 year olds travel east-bound from Victoria (starting the end of June); 16 to 18 year olds travel west-bound from Halifax (departing in late July). At least one delegate spot will be available for each Chapter in each direction until Feb 1, with a mix of both male and female delegates.

Please contact the local Peace Bus Coordinator or for more information: programmes@CISVvictoria.ca.
