The Camp

Nevada Girls State is held at the University of Nevada, Reno 4-H Camp on Lake Tahoe.

As soon as the delegates step onto the 4-H camp, they are sorted into cities, counties, and parties. We strive to separate delegates that come from the same school in order to promote individualized thinking and confidence in new social environments. Every year the girls rise to the occasion, and despite their initial reservations, new and lasting friendships are forged by the end of our short time here.

Every year, each city and county is named in honor of some of the inspirational women in the American Legion Auxiliary and of some of our Nevada women who were, or are, active in politics and are role models for all. All of the delegates in one city live together in one or two cabins. The counseling staff, composed of past delegates who just can’t get enough of Girls State and members of the American Legion Auxiliary, live with the delegates as well. Together our enthusiastic delegates and dedicated staff members make Girls State a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
