Day 1 - United Nations Headquarters

Viewing or UN Exhibits

United Nations Tour

Lunch

United Nations Private Briefing

Day of the Girls Activity

Day 2 - Conference Center

The day begins with an in-depth 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.

Additional Information:

Girl Scouts participating in Camp United Nations for Girls New York City will earn a Global Action Award upon completion of the program. The Delegate fee is $395. The delegate fee covers a GIP logo t-shirt, all program materials, and meals. The delegate fee is non-refundable unless the organizer cancels the program.
