Camp Congress for Girls Los Angeles Fall 2018 is a leadership program that introduces girls ages 9 to 15 to 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 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. Girl Scouts participating in Camp Congress for Girls will earn a Citizen Legacy badge upon completion of the program. All participants will receive a Certificate of Completion for participation.

The general camp rate is $160, the Girl Scout registration rate is $160, the military family rate is $140 and the group rate registration is $140 per ticket for any purchase of 5 or more tickets. The camp fee includes all program materials and meals. The camp registration fee is non-refundable unless the Girls in Politics Initiative cancels the program. For additional information please email us at info@girlsinpolitics.org, call us at 202-660-1457 ext 2 or visit our website at www.girlsinpolitics.org.
