Discover the ICB ActivitiesThere's something for everyone at the ICB !
A hallmark of the ICB is the number and different types of activities offered to our adult members and their children and grandchildren!
ICB activities exist and flourish as a means of sharing common interests and experiences and forging friendships that can last a lifetime.
We are always happy to add new ideas to our growing list of activities, be it for adults or children. If you have a special interest or talent, please do step forward and share it with the ICB!

Please note that the ICB is a social organization, based upon friendships and families. In order to protect this spirit, as well as the privacy of our members and guests, commercial solicitation of any kind is strictly prohibited during ICB activities and events, through our social medias and via the use of our listings.
