Camp Congress for Girls Chicago 2016 is a leadership program that introduces girls ages 9 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 elected official or political consultant.


The camp day runs from 9am to 5pm. The camp fee includes lunch, snacks and all supplies for camp activities. All Girl Scouts participating in the program will earn a Citizen Legacy badge upon completion of the session. The general registration fee is $160 and the Girl Scouts registration fee is $120.
