Event Details

Camp Congress for Girls Jacksonville 2018 is a leadership program that introduces girls ages 10 to 15 to politics. Camp begins with a 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 YouTube. 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. Girl Scouts participating in Camp Congress for Girls Jacksonville will earn a Citizen Legacy Badge for participation. All participants will receive Certificate of Completion.

The camp day runs from 8am to 5pm. The camp fee includes all program materials, snacks, lunch and a GIP logo t-shirt. No refunds will be given for camp registration fees unless the organizer cancels or reschedules the session. The camp general registration fee is $160, the Girl Scout registration fee is $160, the military family registration fee is $140 and the group registration rate for 5 or more tickets is $140 per ticket. For additional information contact us at +1 (202) 660-1457 ext 2,via email at info@girlsinpolitics.org or visit our website at www.girlsinpolitics.org.
