Youth Operate Their Own Businesses During this One-of-a-Kind Summer Camp


An exciting business experience awaits youth between the ages of 9 and 13.  They will participate in a 5-day summer camp unlike any other in our region. Youth Enterprise Camp, brought to you by Head Start in Business and sponsored by Regional CFDCs, FedNor, Ontario Trillium Foundation, Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation and other corporate sponsors, is a one-of-a-kind business camp, where all participants will embark on a journey into the world of enterprise. The camp also includes great summer activities such as swimming, exciting outings, recreational games, campfires and much more.

Young Entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to make new friends, create their own businesses and may even make a profit that is theirs to keep.  Camp participants will be under the supervision of Head Start in Business and Camp staff.

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 team players, creative thinkers, better their organizational skills and goal setting skills all aimed at self-discovery. “My favourite part was making the product because we got to work together as a team,” said a camp participant from last year’s Youth Enterprise Camp. “Seeing the kids start from scratch and slowly transform themselves into entrepreneurs in just a few short days was incredible,” said a camp counsellor.

Campers will run their own “Business for a Day” at the Mill Market on July 29th, 2017 and extend an open invitation to the community to come and support them.

Register early as space is limited.
