Four Day Class

April 1-4, 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.

 

The Four Day Class will meet in the first floor lobby of the Burton M. Cross Building, by 12:45 p.m. on Monday. The TeenPact staff will meet and direct you to the classroom. All students should eat lunch prior to class. Please allow time to transfer your luggage into the trailer for transportation to the camp before you enter the Capitol.

 

NOTE: No luggage is to be brought into the Capitol. Please be sure to drop your luggage for transportation to the camp before making your way to the classroom.

 

Please review our dress code before attending the class.

 

parking

Free parking is available in the parking garage across from the Burton M. Cross Building. All students and chaperones staying at the camp should bring their luggage to the Capitol on Monday where it will be loaded into a trailer and delivered to Camp Good News. The luggage will return to the Capitol on the students’ last day of participation to be picked up from the trailer.
