Camp Information

Who?

Christian students entering 10th through 12th grades, or incoming freshmen to Cedarville University, who are considering a career in politics or government.

What?

At Politics and Policy Camp, students will focus on current political issues surrounding the mid-term election this coming fall. They will learn the history behind the current issues and the solutions that have been used in the past for similar disputes, along with their effect on society. There will also be a congressional simulation proposing possible solutions to the current issues. Students will also have the opportunity to see a model United Nations summit to consider foreign policy issues, in addition to visiting the National Air Force Museum or a local historical site. All the activities are conducted in light of Scripture and all discussions are centered on a Biblical view-point.
