In this fun camp, Polk’s career in all three branches of government, his laws, trials and more will be discussed through the lens of civics and leadership. Campers will learn about the working of government through Polk’s achievements, and recreate some of the exciting features of his career, including mock trials, designing a campaign for governor and more. In addition to engaging activities, campers will hear from local and state lawmakers and craft their own stump speech!
