The World of Enterprise

An exciting business experience awaits youth between the ages of 9 to 13. In its ninth year of operation, youth of our region will have the opportunity to participate in a 5-day summer camp unlike any other in our region from August 10th to August 14th 2015.

Youth Enterprise Camp is sponsored by Community Futures Development Corporations (CFDC) throughout Algoma-Manitoulin, (Superior East CFDC, CDC of Sault Ste. Marie & Area, LAMBAC CFDC and East Algoma CFDC), the Northern Ontario Youth Entrepreneurship Initiative (NOYEI), Algoma University, local businesses and community organizations.

It is a one-of-a-kind business camp that enables all participants the opportunity to embark on a journey into the world of enterprise. The camp also includes great summer activities including swimming, exciting outings, recreational games, campfires and much more.

Young Entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to meet new friends, create their own business and they may even make a profit that is theirs to keep. Camp participants will be under the supervision of the Algoma-Manitoulin CFDCs and Algoma University.

By the end of the week, campers will recognize various qualities, characteristics and attitudes within themselves that can be related to entrepreneurship. Campers will also learn how to be a team player,
a creative thinker, better their organizational skills and goal setting skills all aimed at self-discovery. Campers will run their own “Business for a Day” on Friday August 14th at the Station Mall. This is a perfect opportunity for Algoma-Manitoulin residents to come out and support our entrepreneurs of the future.

Youth Enterprise Camp will take place at Algoma University in Sault Ste Marie from August 10th to August 14th for youth aged 9 to 13 years of age. This camp will host participants from Manitoulin, Espanola, Elliot Lake, North Shore, Blind River, Huron Shores, Thessalon, Sault Ste Marie, Wawa and areas. There are a limited amount of spaces available per community so participants should register early.
