This four-day camp is perfect for teens getting ready to manage their own money, job, and entry into higher education and the workforce.

Topics include income and deductions, budgeting, credit management, investing, career clusters, and insurance. Curriculum is capped by a four-part life simulation, taking campers through life stages of Teen, Young Adult, Working Adult, and Adult Nearing Retirement, to explore how careers and income impact a lifetime of personal financial stability and growth.
JA Bitsy Entrepreneur Virtual Camp
(rising grades 5-8th)
June 28-30, 2021, 9:00am-12:00pm
This online camp is perfect for kids with an entrepreneurial spirit! Over the course of three days, campers will conceive of and develop a product they will sell in our online small business store (think "Etsy") called JA Bitsy! From the start of an idea through budgeting, product design, manufacturing, and branding, students will use their creativity and resourcefulness to produce and sell their products to their fellow JA BizTown Camp Citizens.
