2018 Summer Camp Descriptions:
Hours: 9:00am - 4:00pm
Future Millionaires Bootcamp (Ages 6-17)
This unique experience includes age-appropriate games, simulations and hands-on activities to empower campers with essential 21st century skills and the mindset to make sound financial decisions and develop business savvy. Campers learn about personal finance, design a stock portfolio, play the role of CEO for major companies and learn about innovation trends that are changing the way we live. Campers work in age-based groups and enjoy multiple activity breaks throughout the day.
My First Lemonade Stand (Ages 5-10)
Young campers become “lemonade entrepreneurs” and learn how to make yummy lemonade and earn money selling it! Fun hands-on activities empower campers with an entrepreneurial mindset for their lemonade stand. From designing marketing flyers to estimating profits to experimenting with recipes, campers have fun all week and launch their lemonade stand on the last day of camp!
My First Stock Portfolio (Ages 10-15)
Learn how you can start investing at a young age and make your money grow! Pick your own $10,000 stock portfolio with a cool stock-trading simulation tool using real-time market data. This hands-on experience empowers campers with the tools and mindset to face future investment decisions with confidence and "buy low, sell high"!
Dollars & Sense (Ages 5-10)
This innovative camp provides a solid foundation on financial literacy for kids. Games and hands-on activities help campers internalize key concepts, like budgeting and entrepreneurship, in a fun and supportive environment fostering team work. This unique experience empowers campers with the mindset to start making sound financial decisions and develop into responsible global citizens. Every camper gets a piggy bank to encourage saving!
Budding Entrepreneurs (Ages 6-15)
If you love “Shark Tank,” this empowering camp is for you! Join other intrepid campers and develop a business plan for your own business idea (or we can suggest one!). You will learn to take risks and persevere, while making “business-like” decisions about strategy, marketing and finance. Campers build confidence “learning by doing” throughout the week and make their “pitch” presentations on the last day of camp.
Sports Management (Ages 10-15)
For the sports lover, future team General Manager (GM), sports team owner or ESPN analyst, this unique program will take you to the intersection of sports and business! Campers learn the business side of various sports and actively discuss and analyze different “sports money” topics, including professional sports, college sports, endorsements, player contracts, sports agents and more.
“Thank you! This is just so amazing. Speaking of investments, I can honestly say that this has been the best-value camp my son has ever participated in. We were extremely impressed by the high quality of the material presented, the application of real-world examples, and the way that the camps presented such complex material in a fun way.” - Patricia
"SPARK business academy is run with passion and enthusiasm. Basic money skills are hard to discuss with your children. Budgets, credit cards, credit scores and taxes are now subjects that are easier to discuss with my son. The stock market classes should lead to most students becoming investors at an earlier age than many of their peers. Students gain valuable information and life skills and, for some, this experience will provide the “spark” that leads to a successful career in business." -  Paul
