Camp in the City: Exploring Model UN One Week at a Time
Harvard University has been home to a unique camp this summer Typically, the words “summer camp” summon images of roasting marshmallows, canoeing and other woodsy activities. And while all these activities are fun, UNAGB is offering a camp that is just as entertaining with the bonus of being educational! Our Model UN camps are designed to allow students to debate, develop speeches and prove that they have what it takes to be the global leaders of the future. Of course, there are the added bragging rights of students being able to say they have spent a week in some of Harvard’s finest classrooms!
Model UN is more than just an activity where you pretend to represent a country for a day, and our UNAGB camp certainly proves this. In addition to teaching students the basics of parliamentary procedure and position papers, our camp also dives into improving public speaking and research skills. Additionally, we host guest speakers to show our campers different types of careers and options after high school. It is unbelievable to watch our students end the week in an all-day conference that where they demonstrate the information they learned throughout the week with increased confidence.
There are currently two weeks of camp left that still have a few remaining spots that students can sign up for. Our International Security week is open to all students entering grade 6 through incoming college freshmen. We welcome all levels of MUN experience, including those who have never attended a conference before. This camp will run from July 27th to July 30th.
Our Advanced Diplomacy week is for the Model UN delegates who have had previous experience, but want to improve their ability to debate and think on their feet. We will provide a variety of crisis simulations for a fast-paced week, along with lectures and public speaking exercises. This camp will take place August 3rd through August 7th.
