Event Details

So what exactly is Camp Congress for Girls? Take a look at this clip of our program as seen on MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry Show. VIEW VIDEO CLIP HERE

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 finance plan, campaign marketing materials and political ad for television. All campers will register to vote then vote in an election. Once elected to the 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, interact with the Executive Branch and finally vote on the bill. Camp will culminate with a ceremonial signing of the bill by our Ms. President. Throughout the camp session women serving as elected officials and women working as political consultants will join us as honorary camp counselors. 


The camp day runs from 9am to 5pm however on Friday camp will dismiss at 3pm. The camp fee includes all supplies needed for camp activities and snacks. Campers are to bring lunch daily and wear comfortable clothing. Once registration closes parents will be emailed a registration packet which is to be completed and returned to our organization prior to camp's commencement. The non-refundable camp fee is $500 for the week. Camp Congress for Girls NYC is limited to 50 participants.
