The Madam President Camp is for girls ages 10 to 13 from the Greater Kansas City metro area. Girls this age are getting serious about who they are and about the world around them. They face tough challenges and make difficult decisions. Help your daughter build leadership skills, learn about politics and join a fun and supportive network of peers, civic mentors and parents.

Campers will:

  • Build a sense of confidence and pride
  • Develop skills for political/school campaigns
  • Understand key concepts used in government and politics
  • Discover the history of women in politics
  • Meet women political mentors
  • Participate in field trips and games
  • Practice public speaking and negotiation
