Event Details

Camp United Nations for Girls is a leadership program that introduces girls ages 9 to 15 to the work of the United Nations and international politics. 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 by 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 then writing a position paper. 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. All participants will receive a Certificate of Completion for participation.

Camp United Nations for Girls is ideal for girls with an interest in politics. Camp United Nations for Girls is the perfect next step for girls that have participated in Camp Congress for Girls. The general delegate fee is $160, the Girl Guides of Canada registration fee is $140 and any purchase of 5 or more tickets qualifies for the group rate of $140 per ticket. he delegate fee covers a GIP logo t-shirt, all program materials, and lunch. The registration fee is non-refundable unless the organizer cancels the event.
