Camp Congress for Girls Salt Lake City 2018
Ages6-8 years 9-12 years Teenagers
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 finance plan and a political ad. 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 Salt Lake City 2018 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, meals and a GIP logo t-shirt. No refunds will be given for camp registration fees unless the organizer cancels or reschedules the session. The camp general registration fee is $160, Girl Scout registration fee is $120, activity duty/veteran military rate is $120 and the group rate is $120 for 5 or more tickets.
