SPARK Business Academy Gr. 1-3 Financial Literacy Classes
Campers learn financial literacy through a variety of business strategies!
Dollars & Sense (6/25-6/29 and 7/16-7/20)
Dollars & Sense will empower campers with the mindset to start making sound financial decisions, and to develop into responsible global citizens. Praised in leading business publications as pioneering, this innovative camp provides a solid foundation on financial literacy for kids. Fostering teamwork in a fun and supportive environment, campers internalize key concepts like budgeting and entrepreneurship through games and hands-on activities. Every camper gets a piggy bank to encourage saving! (The camp day will include multiple activity breaks and outside playtime.)
My First Lemonade Stand (7/9-7/13 and 7/23-7/27)
Let's sell lemonade! 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, fostering teamwork in a nurturing environment. From designing marketing flyers to estimating profits to experimenting with recipes, campers have fun all week while engaging in enriching activities with a lasting developmental impact, culminating in the launch of the lemonade stand on the last day of camp!
Young Diplomats (7/30-8/3)
In today's increasingly interconnected world, this camp helps kids develop a global mindset, and build international awareness early in life. Campers learn about cultural differences across countries (e.g., food, clothes, traditions, languages), play geography games, examine foreign currencies and learn the role of international institutions such as the UN and The World Bank. Students develop their public speaking skills, and develop self-confidence as they discuss important global issues like poverty or the environment.
