Love, love, love that these types of programs are popping up around the country:
A-B Tech’s Center for Business and Technology Incubation is accepting applications for its two-day summer day camp for rising sixth- to eighth-grade students interested in business ownership.
“The idea behind the middle school camp is to introduce the students to the ideas of entrepreneurship, creative thinking, and fun, interactive activities to engage students,” said Christy Ramm of the A-B Tech Small Business Center. “The two-day camp will give them the foundation for ideas and concepts that will be expanded in the full week long high school camp.”
Students will learn how to apply for a business loan and about resources in their community. They will also gain an understanding of entrepreneurship as a viable career option and meet and learn from successful entrepreneurs.
