CISV Back to Basics Mini Camp

CISV is an international non-profit that “educates and inspires action for a more just and peaceful world.” CISV Saskatoon is one of 11 chapters across Canada. They hold four different weekend camps every year for youth ages 8-25.

In May, they held a Back to Basics Mini Camp at St. Volodymyr near Pike Lake. The Back to Basics Camp had an environmental theme, encouraging participants to learn how to live the green life and “Think, Choose and Do” things the eco-friendly way.

An EcoFriendly Action Grant made it possible for the group to lower the camp fees, making it more affordable so that more people were able to attend.

Some of the camp activities are illustrated below:

Making Bat Houses

Building Self-Watering Planters
