RIVERDALE, MD – Today, M-NCPPC, Department of Parks and Recreation in Prince George’s County welcomed the First Lady of the State of Maryland, Dawn Moore, as the guest speaker for its She the People summer camp for girls. The informal discussion centered around the First Lady’s career and experience in politics, followed by a question-and-answer session with campers.

“It was my honor to spend time with these extraordinary young ladies at the She The People Camp,” said First Lady Dawn Moore. “This camp available through M-NCPPC is a great example of how our state offers opportunities outside of the classroom to help develop the next generation of public servants and leaders. Our administration is proud to support the growth and education of our students.” 

Now in its seventh year, She the People politics camp encourages girls to dream big and explore the

endless possibilities of women in leadership. This non-partisan camp is designed to teach teenage girls

about the power of civic leadership, government, and politics through a multitude of activities,

discussions, debates, and field trips. Camp graduates are stimulated to get involved in their local

communities and gain hands-on experience in activism, policymaking, leadership, critical thinking, and

public speaking.

“M-NCPPC, Department of Parks and Recreation, offers many programs and services that allow our youth to envision the endless possibilities for their future,” said Bill Tyler, Director of M-NCPPC, Department of Parks and Recreation, Prince George’s County. “She the People is a great example of envisioning future opportunities through real-life experiences.
