The Four Day class is a dynamic, hands-on program where students are taught all the elements of state government and student leadership through field experiences, prayer walks, mock legislation and much more. The class is lead by a well trained student staff team who make learning educational, engaging and fun!

 

Please arrive at the Montana State Capitol by 12:45 pm on Monday. We will be meeting in the Senate Chamber. The TeenPact staff will meet you and direct you to the Welcome Table. All students should eat lunch prior to class.

 

Please review our dress code before attending the class.

On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, TeenPact offers Evening Sessions at Big Sky Fellowship Church 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-residential students are invited as well and if interested in attending, please contact Christie Merck for details.

Political Communication Workshop

April 13, 2018

The Political Communication Workshop allows students to explore different aspects of political communication and public presentation through activities and discussions that will challenge students in their public speaking skills. Attendees will participate in a day filled with academic material ranging from policy debates and mock legislative sessions to field experiences, not to mention continued interaction with like minded teens and curriculum that guides students towards Biblical truth.

 

Please arrive at the Montana State Capitol by 9:45 a.m. on Friday. We will be meeting in the Senate Chamber. The TeenPact staff will meet you and direct you to the classroom.

Camp

April 9-13, 2018

Students attending the Four Day Class are encouraged to stay at Big Sky Fellowship Church.  In addition to the time at the capitol, staying at the church gives students the opportunity to relax and fellowship with like-minded peers in a more casual environment. Students play games, participate in small groups, play Ultimate Frisbee, enjoy a time of worship, and are challenged by a message from the Class Director. Time at camp is an integral part of the TeenPact experience, allowing students to combine the academic emphasis at the capitol with a spiritual focus on students’ relationships with God and one another.

 

Lodging, transportation, and all meals are included in the price of the residential fee of $160 for three nights or $200 for four nights. To reserve your slot, please include this option online at time of registration. Students who are not able to stay may join us for evening events. All residential students and chaperones should drop off their luggage at the Scott Hart Building by 12:30 p.m. on Monday before proceeding to the capitol. The luggage will be transported to the church.

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. We often like to say, “TeenPact is so much more than what happens at the capitol!” Parents and non-residential students are invited as well. If interested, please contact Christie Merck for details.

 

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!

 

One Day Class

April 13, 2018

The One Day Class is a “snapshot” of what happens at the Four Day and is filled with worship, skits, prayer walks, discussing bills in committees, elections and much more.  It’s a fabulous day to spend with younger students while introducing them to state government processes.  

 

Please arrive at the Montana State Capitol by 9:45 a.m. on Friday. We will be meeting in the House of Representatives Chamber, which is on the the 3rd floor, on the west end of the building. The TeenPact staff will meet you at the Welcome Table.
