CISV’s Step Up program encourages young people to take a leading role in planning and organizing activities. Youth and their adult leaders use CISV’s peace education to guide the theme of the camp around which they plan activities, such as identity, democracy, or environmental protection. Participants will have fun and make new friendships, work together to plan activities and discussions which build on the chosen theme, and learn about important issues that affect us all and how they are thought about and dealt with in different countries and cultures.
Step Ups are 23 days, and delegations come from 9 countries and are comprised of 4 delegates accompanied by a 21+ adult leader. The camp is coordinated by adult staff.
