Camp still has space

Spaces still are available for a week-long business camp for youths aged nine-13.
Formerly called “BizKids,” the Youth Enterprise Day Camp provides youth with an introduction to all aspects of business operations and start-up.

“[But] this won’t just bring out entrepreneurial qualities,” noted Youth Entrepreneurship Program co-ordinator Cierra Parkhill.
“Kids will learn leadership skills, problem-solving, learn how to brainstorm, and maybe a little bit of money management,” she said.
Campers will create and promote their own business venture, as well as embrace their entrepreneurial side as they negotiate a loan for purchasing materials to produce and manufacture their product.
Then on the last day of the camp, they host “Business for a Day,” where they get the chance to showcase and sell their product.
“Our campers learn what it takes to be a part of the real business world all while enjoying the summer heat,” Parkhill explained.
The camp, slated to run July 21-25 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., will be held at the NCDS building (304 Scott St.)
The cost is $160 per camper (plus HST).
To register, call Parkhill at 1-807-467-4630.
