Four Day Class

February 12-15, 2018 February 11-14, 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 arrive by 12:30 p.m. on Monday and enter the Indiana Government Center South building through the public entrance along Senate Avenue, between the government center and the capitol building. Be aware there may be a long line as you go through security so please allow a little extra time. After you walk through security, a TeenPact staff member will meet and direct you to the Auditorium in Government Center South. All students should eat lunch prior to class.

 

Please review our dress code before attending the class.

 

parking

Parking downtown is limited with a few metered spaces. These are short-term and require payment via credit card. To find up-to-date info on parking garages, see parking maps at VisitIndy.com or DowntownIndy.org.

Parking is also available at the Indianapolis Zoo (1200 West Washington St.) for $7 per day (free if you are a zoo member). This is the most economical option. Follow the sidewalk between the zoo and White River Gardens and you will enjoy a safe hike across the White River on a pedestrian bridge, past the NCAA Hall of Champions, Indiana State Museum, and Eiteljorg Museum. The Government South building is the next building after the Eiteljorg. The only road to cross is West Street at the intersection of Washington and West.

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 YMCA 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, please contact Loni Montgomery 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!

Camp

February 12-16, 2018 February 11-15, 2019

Students attending the Four Day Class are encouraged to stay at Flat Rock YMCA Camp. This is an integral part of the TeenPact experience, allowing students to combine the academic emphasis at the Capitol with a spiritual focus on relationships with God and one another. Staying at the camp gives 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.

 

Lodging, transportation, breakfasts, and dinners are included in the price of the residential camp fee of $160 for three nights or $200 for four nights. To reserve your slot at the camp, please include this option at time of registration. Students who are not able to stay at camp may join us for dinner and evening events. Please make your dinner reservation by emailing Loni Montgomery. All students and chaperones staying at the camp should drop off and pick up luggage at the camp prior to arriving at the Capitol on Monday.

 

Camp registration will close on Friday, January 26, 2018 at 12:00 p.m.

NOTE: Students will receive a detailed letter from the State Coordinator approximately three weeks before class begins. If you do not receive one, please contact your State Coordinator.

 

We encourage parents to come and enjoy the week as chaperones and assist with student transportation at a discounted rate of $120 for three nights or $155 for four nights. This is a wonderful opportunity for adults to experience TeenPact as well. Often parents find they enjoy their week at TeenPact as much as their students!

 

We are so grateful for parents who are willing to assist with student transportation because we cannot do TeenPact without you! We need several 12-15 passenger vans to transport the camp students to and from the Statehouse each day. If you have a van/vehicle or access to a church bus and are willing to drive our students, please contact Loni Montgomery with the number of passengers your van can carry. To reserve your place at the camp, please register online.
