We are pleased to offer catered lunches for our Four Day Students and Chaperones. If you are staying at the residential camp, lunch will be provided at no additional charge. If you are a commuting to the Four Day Class from home each day, you may purchase lunch online at time of registration. If you are a commuter student and do not wish to purchase lunch, you are welcome to bring a sack lunch from home each day. 

 

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, TeenPact offers Evening Sessions 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. 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 are invited as well.

 

Students who are not able to stay at Lake Waubesa are invited to join us for the afternoon activities, dinner, and evening sessions.  If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, please contact the Wisconsin State Coordinating Team at wisconsin@teenpact.com before January 10th.

 

Parents are welcome and encouraged to stay and observe the Four Day class. We love having parents learning right alongside their student! If you’re unable to stay for the class, 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!
