What happens at JA BizTown Summer 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 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!
Please email Pete Crozier at pcrozier@jacols.org if you have any questions.
Thank You, Columbus!
