The Four Day Class is a dynamic, hands-on leadership experience where students learn about state government from a Christian worldview.

Please meet at the Sequoyah Building on the Capitol Complex by 12:45 p.m. on Monday. The Capitol complex is located near Lincoln and 21st Street. The TeenPact staff will meet and direct you to the classroom. All students should eat lunch prior to class.

For those commuting who are not able to stay with us at the camp, please bring your own individual lunch each day. Students will be interacting with various activities during lunch and will not have an opportunity to purchase lunch.

 

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 Heartland Conference IPHC that give students the opportunity to relax and fellowship with like-minded peers in a more casual environment.

Parents and non-camp students are invited as well and if interested in attending, please contact Rita Seldenrust 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!

In order to have a successful Residential Camp, we ask that parents consider attending as chaperones during the week with their students. If you are interested in being a chaperone for TeenPact Oklahoma, please contact Rita Seldenrust or register as a chaperone.

 

Chaperones are responsible for those in their room when at camp, for helping transport students to the Capitol and back, and for helping serve meals when needed. We also have the need for some chaperones to serve on our Kitchen Crew. We ask chaperones to participate by wearing capitol clothes if they stay at the Capitol, and encouraging students during free time at the camp. Your presence as parents lends to the positive learning and fellowship atmosphere we strive to have at TeenPact Oklahoma. 

 

We invite chaperones and kitchen crew to stay at a discounted rate of $20 per night ($60 for three nights, $80 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! To reserve your spot, register today!
