Welcome to CCL's Climate Policy Camp Community page, we're excited to have you join us for 2019!
Here’s where you can begin your journey in preparing to study and understand the complicated policy questions that arise in climate advocacy work. To start, feel free to visit the group's Forums to introduce yourself and start to get to know your other summer cohort-members.
Please reference the "More Info" section below for details and logistics to help you in advance of Camp and email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you have!
Reading materials for 2019 will be available starting in early May on this group's "Files" page on Community. The page is organized by International and Domestic tracks, and a section for everyone to read. You will receive an email a few weeks prior to Camp to tell you which track you are in. In the mean time, feel free to explore any Files and Videos from last year's archived lessons, but know they will most likely change for this year's focus.

What to Expect at Camp
Each faculty has determined the material and presentation for their own session to prepare you for the Negotiation Simulation portion of Camp. We’ve recommended that they dedicate a third of their session to question and answer and they will also schedule their own breaks. In between sessions, you will likely want to meet with your assigned team and begin to organize and prepare for the Friday afternoon activity.
We will have access to American University’s public WiFi. The username will be AU Guest and no password will be needed.
Suggested materials to bring to camp
- Laptop/tablet if you like (it is recommended so you can access reading materials and resources).
- Notebook and writing utensil(s)
- Any printed reading materials printed, to save paper Camp will not be providing copies

Meals at Camp
We will be serving light breakfast and lunch on Thursday and Friday. Dinners will be on your own. If you are looking for other dining options, American University has some on-campus eateries, find more information here. There are local restaurants off-campus as well.
Dinner time will provide an excellent time to network with other Campers, and we will be providing note boards so you can self-organize with your group.
