Camp United Nations for Girls is a political leadership program that introduces girls ages 10 to 15 to international politics and the work of the United Nations. The program begins with a 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 in the United Nations’ boards, commissions, committees, councils and panels and working groups. Prior to convening the General Assembly, each participant will select a United Nations member state which she will represent during the session. When the General Assembly convenes delegates will give speeches, negotiate with other delegates, caucus and propose resolutions along with amendments before finally voting. Delegates will be seated in by continent or regions as working groups. Girl Scouts participating in Camp United Nations for Girls will earn a Girl Scouts Global Action Award.
Camp United Nations for Girls is ideal for girls with an interest in politics. The general delegate fee is $160, the Girl Scout delegate fee is $160, the military family delegate fee is $140 and the group delegate fee is $140 per ticket for any purchase of 5 or more tickets. The delegate fee covers all program materials, a GIP logo shirt, snacks and lunch. The registration fee is non-refundable unless the organizer cancels the event. In the event that a participant is unable to attend a credit will be issued for the full value of the ticket, the credit will not expire.
