Jr Camp Congress for Girls

March 26 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Jr Camp Congress for Girls San Francisco 2023

Camp Congress for Girls San Francisco 2023 is a leadership program that introduces girls, ages 8-11, to United States 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 finance plan, and film 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. All participants will receive Certificate of Completion. Girl Scouts earn a badge for participation.
