Event description

Description

We are hosting a special session of Camp Congress just for girls ages 6 to 7. Mini Camp Congress for Girls Palo Alto 2020 is an introduction to the United States political system for young girls. Camp begins with a lesson on the structure of the U.S. political system, the process of running for office and voting in the United States. Each girl will create a platform of issues she cares about most, create her own campaign poster and record a campaign ad. Camp will culminate with the girls convening a Congress and passing their own bill. All girls will serve as members of Congress.

The camp day runs from 9am to 1pm. The camp fee includes all program materials, GIP logo t-shirt and lite lunch. All participants will receive Certificate of Completion. For additional information contact us at +1 (202) 660-1457 ext 2,via email at info@girlsinpolitics.com or visit our website at www.girlsinpolitics.com.
