Event Details

Camp Congress is a week-long summer camp that introduces girls ages 7 to 17 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, US Senate or for the presidency. She will create her own campaign with a campaign platform, campaign slogan, campaign button, a campaign banner and a yard sign. Each camper will film a political ad for her campaign. All campers will register to vote then vote in an election. Once elected to the Congress, the newly installed members of Congress will learn how to introduce a bill, debate the merits of the bill, lobby other members of Congress and finally vote on the bill. Camp will culminate with a ceremonial signing of the bill by our Ms. President. Throughout the camp week women serving as our local and state elected officials will join us to work with the girls as "honorary camp counselors" giving the campers the opportunity to interact with women in office. 

The camp day runs from 9am to 5pm. The camp fee includes a Camp Congress t-shirt, two snacks and all supplies for camp activities. Campers are to bring a lunch daily and wear comfortable clothing. Space is limited; early registration is encouraged. Camp tuition is $300 for the week. 

Due to limited space and high demand no refunds will be given for camp registration fees. Campers should be rising 1st graders to attend Camp Congress.

Camp Congress is an initiative created and hosted by the Political Institute for Women.
