Event description

Description

Camp Congress 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. All participants will receive a Certificate of Completion.

* The camp fee includes all program materials, lunch, snack, and a GIP logo t-shirt.

* The camp is a drop-off event, and parents/chaperones are welcome to wait in the auditorium.

* Please see the registration form/agreement prior to submitting payment. The registration form may be found at http://www.dallashistory.org/student-special-programs/.

* Please fax the completed and signed registration form to (214) 421-7500 or email to Katherine@dallashistory.org.
