Event description

Description

Camp United Nations for Girls London 2018 is a political leadership program that introduces girls ages 9 to 15 to international politics and the work of the United Nations. The program begins with a lesson on the history of the United Nations and its purpose. This is followed by an explanation of the structure, leadership and the rules of procedure of the United Nations starting with the General Assembly and subsidiary organs. Participants learn about the specific work undertaken in the United Nations’ boards, commissions, committees, councils and panels and working groups. Prior to convening the General Assembly, each participant will be assigned a country and guided through researching her country . When the General Assembly convenes delegates will give speeches, negotiate with other delegates, caucus and propose resolutions along with amendments before finally voting. All activities will be guided by a camp counselor in small working groups of delegates. Girl Scouts participating in Camp United Nations for Girls will earn a Girl Scouts Global Action Award.

Camp United Nations for Girls is ideal for girls with an interest in politics. The delegate fee is $185. Any purchase of 5 or more tickets qualifies for the group rate fee of $165. The delegate fee covers all program materials, snack of fresh fruit and cookies, 3 course buffet lunch and GIP logo t-shirt. The registration fee is non-refundable unless the organizer cancels the event.
