There really are no words for the power that is... CISV. You cannot google it and know what it is, you won't even grasp the concept of it. One can only know what it really is once you've gone through that one glorious month of summer camp, and then... you will know what CISV is.

But here's a simple background:
Founded by Dorris Allen. It stands for "Children's International Summer Village".

It will, whether you like it or not, CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

God, that's all I can really tell you.
