Camps are open to students of any schools

Specially created for children 8 to 14 years old, these camps are a combination of experimentation, teamwork, skill-building and planning. Kids will be grouped in teams to come up with a plan to start, fundraise and build their own companies. The decisions that the companies make are entirely student-driven, which means they will have to work together, come up with a plan and execute that plan. Think of it as a step-by-step guide to becoming an entrepreneur!

Your kids will have so much fun learning they won’t even realise they are actually honing their skills and building confidence. The educational camps, which include a fun sales bazaar, are designed to enhance your child’s learning and leadership abilities, communication, teamwork, critical and logical thinking. And don’t forget the added bonus of math skills when they are setting up budgets and reconciling accounts!

And since most kids think money just grows on trees, these camps are a great way to teach them about business and the financial world. They’ll become financially literate while also learning to manage their money better. They’ll also learn the importance of sharing and giving back to the community.

This parent and teacher favourite camp is one that will not only enhance your child’s education but also be one with benefits he or she will use for years to come. It’s been delivered to more than 680,000 students from more than 100 countries since 1997, so you know it’s tried and tested thoroughly.
