Money Camps, Inc. (www.moneycamps.com) holds events for people of all ages, especially children. Money Camps for Kids was created to introduce the world of finances to young people in a lively, interactive environment. Through discussion, games, storytelling, and role-playing, small groups of campers learn the fundamentals of banking, investing, and charitable giving. There are no classrooms or rigid guidelines. Geared for young people from all economic backgrounds, the curriculum is focused but fun. Afternoons and evenings are open for kids and parents to enjoy time together or engage in their own activities.
The Money Camp For Kids (www.themoneycamp.com) uses a day camp format to provide middle and high school-age kids with financial tools to help them choose and create financial independence. Through games, activities, speakers, group exercises, projects, and field trips, kids learn how money works. They learn that financial independence is their choice and their responsibility. Topics covered include loans, rent, utility bills, and even managing a food budget. (This program is not affiliated with Money Camps, Inc.’s Money Camps for Kids.)
