Budding Entrepreneur Camp

Has your child ever mentioned starting their own business someday?  Do they have a great idea but could use some motivation, encouragement, and advice on how to get started?  Or, do they just have the "entrepreneur bug" and are looking to have fun while brainstorming ideas? Would you love to get your child motivated for the school-year in a casual, fun setting? 

This Budding Entrepreneur Camp is something that WE wish we had the chance to attend at a young age!  

In this camp, we will create a lemonade stand business- but it will be SO much more than that! We will come up with a business plan, learn how to differentiate our business, calculate costs and profits, and MORE!

We even have one day of "LIVE" business where customers can come and purchase lemonade and other goodies from our stand!  On the last day we will reflect on how we did & discuss what may have made it even better.

This will be a unique & fun opportunity to learn about business first-hand from real-life local business owners!

Limit of NINE campers per session.

Please note this camp is led by Climbing Vines Cafe & Play owner Michele & assistants.
