Boot Camps

Designed especially for women who want to run this election cycle.

Our 2021 boot camp took place virtually from June 2nd-6th (evenings and weekends).

Emerge Washington hosts boot camps every year for Democratic women running for office who weren’t able to participate in our full Emerge training.

The boot camps have been developed to give Democratic women the skills they need to turbocharge their campaigns. Top political strategists and trainers will teach attendees critical elements of campaigning, including:

Campaign overview & structure
Social Media
Developing campaign plan & strategy
Endorsements & Power Brokers
Messaging and Media Relations
Field Campaigns
Public Speaking
And much more!

For info on future boot camps, sign up for updates from Emerge WA or email 

Tuition varies by year and location, and includes the training, associated materials and food. Participants are responsible for their own lodging. Attendees who complete the boot camp will be considered Emerge boot camp alumnae and have access to alumnae resources as well as continuing education opportunities.

Tuition may be paid by personal or campaign committee accounts. Due to campaign finance regulations, Emerge and its affiliates cannot provide scholarships to boot camp participants.
