Event Details

 

Camp Congress for Girls Albuquerque Santa Fe 2017 is a leadership program that introduces girls ages 8 to 15 to politics. Camp begins with a girl-friendly lesson on the structure of our political system. Each girl will choose to run for a seat in the US House of Representatives, the US Senate or for the presidency. She will create her own campaign with a platform, campaign slogan, campaign finance plan, campaign marketing materials and a political ad for television. 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 Ms. President. During the camp session the campers will meet an elected official or political consultant. Girl Scouts that participate in Camp Congress for Girls will receive a Citizen Legacy badge at the completion of the program. All participants will receive a Certificate of Completion for participation.

The camp day runs from 9am to 5pm. The registration fee includes lunch, snacks and all supplies for camp activities. No refunds will be given for camp registration fees unless the organizer cancels or reschedules the session. The general camp registration fee is $160 and the Girl Scouts camp registration fee is $120. For additional information visit our website at www.girlsinpolitics.org or email us at info@girlsinpolitics.org. GIP may also be reached via phone at 202-660-1457 ext 2.
