Model UN Camp is a summer program for creative young individuals with an interest in international affairs. The program pairs discussions of important global issues with outdoor activities designed for high school students. By demonstrating that learning about the world can be fun and engaging, we encourage students to develop a passion for international affairs, and motivate them to want to learn more about their world.
Every summer, we bring together students from all around the world, and guide them as they step into the shoes of a foreign diplomat. From these perspectives, students debate and negotiate with their peers in a format similar to that used in the real United Nations. In the process, they develop public speaking, debate, and collaboration skills, and simultaneously gain an understanding of some of the world's most pressing issues.
Each session of the program contains three topics of discussion, a wide range of workshops and seminars, and specially designed camp activities that offer a break from formal committee sessions, while simultaneously encouraging students to learn more.
