It’s never too early to spark your child’s entrepreneurial spirit!

This unique summer camp will inspire camp goers to generate innovative ideas and spot opportunities through critical thinking, problem-solving, and creative brain-storming techniques.

 

Our positive environment and supportive approach encourages team-building, collaboration, and promotes self-confidence and leadership skills. Each day the kids will learn a new concept that will prepare them for the last day of camp – our Lemonade Stand Challenge!

 

Our time will be shared between activities in our “learning lab” with fun games and outdoor challenges (weather permitting). After all, no summer camp would be complete without some FUN in the SUN!

And best of all, 100% of proceeds go to local causes chosen by the kids! 💕 

 business skills

Kids will learn important life skills that can be applied to any career choice in any economic environment.

problem solving & critical thinking

Kids learn how to solve problems in new ways and spot opportunities.

financial literacy

Kids become responsible with money as they learn the value of money.

self confidence

Kids develop confidence by making decisions, 
public speaking, and earning money.

TEAMWORK

Kids learn by doing. They will practice communicating with others, resolving conflicts, and managing tasks.

What will kids learn by participating?

A quick google search results in dozens of articles from leading minds on why we should be teaching kids entrepreneurial skills from a young age.

 

Entrepreneurship is the best preparation for an unpredictable economy. Teaching entrepreneurship changes mindsets and instills a set of skills that can be applied to any career. And with economists predicting that the jobs of tomorrow don’t even exist today, entrepreneurial skills are life skills.
