Ages 8 - 18

An entertaining and educational five-day camp that will impact students’ thoughts and beliefs about money. This camp will encourage and inspire them to live a financially secure future. Financial literacy is the missing piece to STEAM Education. STEAM education is crucial to educate and prepare the next generation workforce, and to allow this generation to create jobs and grow the economy. However, empowering every child with awareness about money and investing is what will create financially strong individuals and robust economies.

This fun instruction about income, debt, and investing will prevent many young adults from fumbling through life by trial and error, and having to deal with the damaging effects of bad credit, no savings and poor money management skills. The life lessons learned through Money 101™ are priceless.

Camp days will be filled with high-energy games and students will learn time-tested personal money management skills thorough play. Activities will involve stimulating group projects on money management as well as group and individual competitions. All lessons learned will create good financial habits that will last a lifetime.

 

Here is a partial list of the topics discussed at camp. Every concept is tied to a game, activity or process, which will leave the student learning about important money concepts through immersion.
