What happends at JA BizTown camp?

At this camp, the kids run the place.

JA BizTown Camp gives kids the opportunity to experience what it's like to work in a job and run a business. But it's much more than that!

JA BizTown Camp is an indoor, academic camp that combines classroom-style teaching with hands-on activities. Much of the camp experience includes working with other campers of different ages on group projects.


Concepts learned and applied at camp:

· Entrepreneurship – brainstorming ideas and bringing them to life

· Job preparation – applying for and interviewing for a job

· Business expenses – what are they and how do  businesses cover costs

· Marketing – why and how to communicate your products or services

· Customer service – why it's important to business  success

· Tradeoffs – what to do when business resources  are limited

· Making money for a business – how costs and sales  affect profit and loss

· Teamwork – working with a group to reach a goal

· Personal banking – using a checkbook to pay for things you need or want

And much more!
