Information Regarding Fees and Estimated Program Costs (Adult)

Fees and other program costs are kept at a reasonable level because CISV is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization. Incidentals are for miscellaneous items, and are NOT included in the program cost listed below. These cost estimates include all known major expenses associated with the program. Scholarship (financial assistance) may be available based on need.


This reflects the projected fees for 2010 programs.

  1. Fees are payable in full at the time of selection into the program. Adults have the option to join CISV as an individual or have their entire family join the organization. These are the only official program costs, however please see Incidentals below.

    CISV DC Family Membership
    CISV DC Individual Membership $50
  1. Incidentals are costs for miscellaneous items for which you will be responsible in preparation for travel. These costs are not included in the total estimate.

    • Physical Examination - A required CISV form will be provided for a medical examination to be performed by a physician within one month after selection.

    • Spending Money - The amount of spending money you carry is based on good judgment. The Chapter generally recommends no more than $250.

    • Passport and Visa - Those traveling to Camps in other countries will be required to have a passport. Sometimes a visa is also required. Apply for a passport as soon as possible, as they can take up to 6 months to process!

Note: Your travel costs are paid by the families.
