What does minicamp look like? Throughout the camp there is a balance of physical activities, thought-provoking activities, simulations, fun games, as well as some free time. As a participant, you must be prepared to think and discuss a wide variety of topics. You must also be aware that CISV camps can at times be an intense experience, meaning some activities may bring out deep thoughts and complex emotions.

Sustainability: CISV Victoria is focusing on trying to become more sustainable, so when thinking of what to bring to a mini camp (especially food) and how you are going to travel to mini camp, we ask you to think about how sustainable you can be when packing and traveling to camp. Some ideas on how to be more sustainable include carpooling, limiting packaging on food, bringing homemade food, etc. Thank you for considering.

Sleeping arrangements: We will have separate sleeping areas for boys, girls, and gender neutral participants – please contact us if you require alternate arrangements.

Adults: All participants aged 18 and older at minicamp must provide a criminal record check (CRC) for CISV Canada. CISV will keep your name on record upon presenting a copy of the CRC in order to facilitate this process at future camps. If you are interested in chaperoning or being a a minicamp cook to help prepare meals for the weekend please contact our JB Liaison, Leanna Madill at
