About The Event
Our Fall Mini-Camp is a great way to see what a CISV camp is like. It's a chance for kids to participate in CISV activities, meet everyone from the chapter, and have fun! Any youth aged 10 and up are welcome to join in the fun.
Please register as soon as possible, as we need to know the number of participants to successfully plan for a great experience. The team at CISV Toronto has been jumping threw hula hoops to make this opportunity happen. We have found a gorgeous new camp site, Camp Kawartha on Clear Lake. The camp offers acres of forest and decades of experience teaching youth about environmental stewardship, ecology and enjoying the outdoors.
We are very excited about the weekend, so help us out by signing up your child today!
Friday night – Please arrive at the bus drop off location by 5:30pm. Forms need to be reviewed and handed in, and a Covid Rapid test will need to be taken before boarding the bus (we will provide tests). Dinner will be provided on arrival but given it will be late, consider providing your participant with a lite snack prior to.
Saturday – All meals and snacks will be included. Please do not send your camper with snacks as they will not be allowed in the cabins (allergies and cleanliness)

Parent Volunteers Needed
Parent volunteers do not participate in activities with the youth but are onsite in case of emergency. It's a fun relaxing way to spend a weekend, enjoying the outdoors and getting to know other CISV families. Parents do not need to pay to volunteer and will be included for all meals. Parents are welcome to travel on the bus or their own car. We require 4 adults to be onsite. If you can stay both nights please sign up for both shifts, preference will be given to adults able to stay both nights. For those parents who had previously signed up, please let us know (by updating the sign up sheet or not) if you are still able to help out now that the dates are confirmed.
Adult volunteers must be at least 21 years old and will need to provide a copy of their criminal record check to our risk managers. If you are new to CISV and do not have a CRC, an online application can be forwarded.
