At this camp, the kids run the place. That's because JA BizTown® is a mini-metropolis—home to Forcht Bank, Keeneland, Kentucky Utilities, Chick-fil-A, Toyota, LEX 18, and other businesses found in Central Kentucky.

JA BizTown Camp is an indoor, academic camp that combines classroom-style teaching with hands-on activities. Kids will discover the real-life opportunities available in the free enterprise system, as they become business operators, taxpayers and consumers.
