What's Included

This camp offers those students interested in international politics an opportunity to explore their interests. Sessions will be partly composed of films/documentaries followed by group discussions. Possible film topics may be focused on a particular war, national leader or a broader topic such as terrorism or immigration. Students will also learn about organizations operating in Baltimore that have an international presence. Baltimore has international government organizations that handle various issues. When possible, students will be able to visit or talk with a representative from these organizations. This is a great opportunity for students intending to study politics or social sciences after high school. It is also a great time for students who do not know much about world politics and want to start understanding their world. How many people hear about organizations such as ISIS or the Taliban but do not know the facts? Would you like to have educated opinions about what is going on in the world around us? The week will focus on two main topics. The topics composing the two main topics will largely be determined by the interests of the students. Students will be able to conduct their own research, debate amongst their peers, watch relevant films/documentaries and talk with people who have firsthand knowledge about their topic. Students will leave with a better ability to understand and judge what is happening in their world. They will leave with confidence that they can contribute to the discussions about world events. They will have a better understanding of how the world works and hopefully enjoy enlightening discussions/debates amongst their peers.
