Camp Congress for Girls Minneapolis St. Paul 2017 is a leadership program that introduces girls ages 8 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 slogan, campaign finance plan, campaign marketing materials and a political ad for television. 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 elected officials and political consultants that will serve as honorary camp counselors.Girl Scouts will receive a Citizen Legacy badge for completing Camp Congress for Girls Minneapolis St. Paul.

The camp day runs from 8am to 5pm. The camp fee includes lunch and all supplies for camp activities. No refunds will be given for camp registration fees. The general registration fee is $160, the Girl Scouts registration fee is $120 and the group registration fee is $120 for five or more tickets.
