Do you have a budding youth entrepreneur living in your home? Or do you know of one?
The ESI summer camp will help these teens develop those business ideas. With the success of the EntrepreneurShip Investigation (ESI) Youth Entrepreneur pilot program which was taught at the Phillipsburg Middle School this last semester, Discover Phillipsburg Main Street and the E-Center in Phillipsburg will again be partnering to provide this camp.
This camp will incorporate the ESI materials into its activities. The ESI is an exciting, interactive, and comprehensive curriculum project designed for youth, ages 10 – 19. ESI is truly a pioneer in the field of youth entrepreneurship education. It was developed with four audiences in mind: 4 – H clubs, middle and high schools, youth and community organizations.
Campers will be grouped together by interest and will use handout materials and computers to investigate potential business ideas. They will take their business ideas and actually purchase the materials necessary to produce a product during camp. As they produce a small supply of these products they will learn more about entrepreneurship, build their leadership skills and hone their passions. A business showcase will be held on the last day of camp to sell the products that they have made.
EntrepreneurShip Investigation camp is scheduled for June 5th through the 8th (Tuesday through Friday) from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. It will be held at the E-Center in Phillipsburg.
The camp is open to students who have completed 5th through 10th grades, and is limited to 15 students. Camper’s lunches, curriculum and instructor fees will be provided by the grant funds. This camp is funded in part by the Dane G. Hansen Foundation and the Foundation for Rural Services.
Cost of the camp is $75.00 per camper. These funds will be used to purchase the supplies the youth needs to develop his/her product.
