LUNCH: Each camper needs a brown-bag lunch Monday-Wednesday. Junior Achievement will provide drinks and a snack daily, along with a lunch on Thursday.
APPROPRIATE DRESS: Campers should dress modestly, comfortably and appropriately. This is an academic camp; however, learning involves active games and lessons. Athletic shoes are recommended.
MEDICATION: If your child has medication that must be dispensed during the day camp, please:
Send all medication to camp in a large zip bag.
Clearly mark zip bag with your child's name.
All medication should be in the original container with a signed parental note, which clearly states dispensing directions.
What People Are Saying about JA BizTown
I received a couple emails from parents (who weren't volunteers) that said:
- their child couldn't stop talking about their day.
- Volunteers said that they were surprised that the students were doing so many real-world tasks and that it was a "must" for all elementary students.
- The demand on our schedule to fit in certain standards throughout the year makes it difficult to include these kinds of crucial skills for students, but this program made it really easy (and fun!) for students to learn these skills without interrupting our daily tasks.
- This was the best field trip I've ever taken my students on.
