Mini Camp Congress for Girls Seattle 2024 is an introduction to the United States political system for girls ages 6 and 7. Camp begins with a lesson on the structure of the U.S. political system, the process of running for office and voting in the United States. Each girl will create a platform of issues she cares about most, create her own campaign poster and record a campaign ad. Camp will culminate with the girls convening a Congress and passing their own bill. All girls will serve as members of Congress. Girl Scouts earn the new civics badge. Looking for more events?
