Description

Join us for a special session of Camp Congress for Boys DC 2018. This week-long political leadership summer camp that introduces boys ages 10 to 14 to politics. Camp will include an outing to the US Capitol to meet members of Congress, visiting the House Gallery, visiting the Senate Gallery, lunch on the Hill, a tour of the US Capitol, the United States Supreme Court and a visit to the Library of Congress. Participants will also visit the National Archives to see the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence. Additional outings include the National Museum of American History, the Air and Space Museum and the Newseum.

The Camp Congress for Boys classroom curriculum begins with a lesson on the structure of our political system. Each camper will choose to run for a seat in the US House of Representatives, the US Senate or for the presidency. He will create his own campaign with a platform, campaign slogan, campaign finance plan and a political ad. All campers will register to vote and then vote in an election. Once elected to Congress and sworn in, the newly installed members of Congress will learn how to introduce a bill, debate the merits of the bill, lobby fellow legislators, collaborate with the Executive branch and finally vote on the proposed bill. Camp will culminate with a ceremonial signing of the bill by our President. All attendees earn a Certificate of Completion.

Registration for this session is limited to 20 participants. The camp fee includes snacks, all supplies for camp activities including Capitol Hill and other outings. Campers bring lunch Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. On Wednesday lunch will be served in the Capitol cafeteria and a pizza party will be hosted on Friday. For additional information email us at info@girlsinpolitics or call +1 (202) 660-1457 ext 2.
