Four Day Class

April 1-4, 2019 April 8-11, 2019 April 15-18, 2019

The Four Day Class is a dynamic, hands-on leadership experience where students learn about state government from a Christian worldview. Students gather at their local State Capitol to run for student office, participate in a mock legislature, and learn about how they can be effective leaders in their community back home. For students ages 13-19.

 

Please meet the TeenPact staff in the Florida State Capitol rotunda by 12:30 p.m. From there, you will be directed to the classroom. All students should eat lunch prior to class.

 

Please review our dress code before attending the class.

 

NOTE: We will be meeting in the newer Capitol building which faces Duval Street and not in the Historic Capitol Building which faces Monroe Street.

To the Camp

All students and chaperones staying at Woodmen of the World should go to the camp first on Monday morning between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. This will allow you the time needed to check into the camp, load your luggage into your cabin, stop for lunch on the way to the Capitol, and arrive at the Capitol Rotunda by 12:30 p.m.

 

On Thursday following graduation, students may pick up their luggage on the sidewalk on Duval Street in front of the dolphin fountains. Students do not need to return to the camp to get their belongings. If a student is staying for the Political Communication Workshop, then the same procedure will be followed on Friday afternoon after the workshop.

If you are commuting from home and do not wish to purchase catered lunches, you are welcome to bring your own lunch from home. Purchasing lunch in the cafeteria will not be an option for Four Day Students.

 

NOTE: All residential students and chaperones are required to purchase catered lunches. Please do so at time of registration.

 

Evening Sessions are an integral part of the TeenPact experience, allowing students to combine the academic emphasis in class with a spiritual focus on students’ relationships with God and one another.

 

On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, TeenPact offers Evening Sessions at the Woodmen of the World Camp that give students the opportunity to relax and fellowship with like-minded peers in a more casual environment. Students play games, participate in small groups, enjoy a time of worship, and are challenged by a message from the Class Director. Parents and non-camp students are invited as well and, if interested in attending, should contact Kendra Pearson to make dinner reservations.

 

Parents are invited to stay for as much of the class as possible. We love having parents observe what their students are learning! If you are not able to stay, you are welcome to drop off your student.

 

Please join us for graduation on Thursday beginning at 1:00 p.m. During graduation, students participate in a short mock legislative session, hear speeches from the elected officials, hear a charge from the Program Director, receive graduation certificates, and much more!
