JA Biz Wizards Camp
Time: 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Who: Ages 8-9 (Campers must have completed 2nd grade)
Monday: Money in the Middle - Money is the go-between for trading things. Wizards will experience how coins, paper currency, and bank accounts are used in the "real world!"
Tuesday: Earning Money - Wizards have fun earning income by performing silly jobs. They will learn how people must earn income before they can spend or save it!
Wednesday: Spending and Saving Money - Buying goods and services is great fun, but careful choices must be made by wizards because there is always an opportunity cost!
Thursday: Producing Goods and Services - Wizards become business owners and experience combining resources to produce goods and services. Wizards learn about business costs, expenses, and profit.
Friday: Profit! - The wizards will operate businesses, earn income, manage a bank account, have work breaks to shop and earn a profit (or not). They will learn that earning a profit takes hard work and good decisions! Parents are invited to join the Wizards during the last hour of camp.
