Event description

Description

Camp Congress for Girls St. Louis 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 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. During the camp session the campers will meet an elected official or political consultant. Girl Scouts participating in Camp Congress for St. Louis 2017 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 and lunch. No refunds will be given for camp registration fees unless the organizer cancels or reschedules the session. The camp general registration fee is $160 and the Girl Scout registration fee is $120.
