Cet été, le chapitre de Montréal accueille neuf délégations dans le cadre d’un programme « Step Up ». Le programme Step Up – aussi connu en français sous le nom « Pas à Pas » – est un camp international de trois semaines. Ce programme est tout particulier en ce que les participants assument certaines responsabilités dans la planification et le fonctionnement du camp. Les jeunes développent eux-même des activités selon un thème choisi par le chapitre hôte et en lien avec l’une des quatre thématiques de CISV – droits humains, diversité, résolution de conflit et développement durable. Pour souligner l’année CISV de la diversité, notre camp a pour thème Trait d’union

Au camp Trait d’union, des individus des quatre coins du monde s’uniront pour partager leurs rêves et leurs peurs. Leurs idées et leurs interrogations. Nos délégations proviennent du Brésil, du Canada, de la République Tchèque, de l’Israël, de l’Italie, du Mexique, du Portugal, de l’Espagne et de la Suède. Le camp Trait d’union sera le lien entre leurs réalités distinctes. Ce sera l’endroit où nous trouverons quel est notre trait d’union.

This summer, the Montreal Chapter welcomes nine delegations from different countries as part of a « Step Up » programme. The Step Up programme is a three-week international camp. This programme is unique in that the participants assume certain responsibilities in the planning and operation of the camp. The youth themselves develop activities according to a theme chosen by the host chapter and related to one of the four content areas of CISV – human rights, diversity, conflict and resolution, and sustainable development. To mark the CISV year of Diversity, our camp theme is Trait d’union [hyphen]. 

At Trait d’union camp, individuals from all over the world will unite to share their dreams and fears. Their ideas and interrogationsOur delegations come from Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Portugal, Spain and Sweden. Trait d’union camp will be the bond between their distinct realities. It will be the place where we find out what is our trait of union?
