Hybrid: Summer Camp Enterprise: Gr. 8-10
Youth / Expand Your World & Enrichment -
Youth Summer 2021
Fun and imagination are the keys to innovation and creativity in life and in business. Register now to participate in a fun role playing educational activity!
Students entering Grades 8-10 will learn about business and our free enterprise system in Summer Camp Enterprise. The fictitious National Lemon Growers Association is looking for innovative ways to promote lemons and lemonade stands in communities across the country. They are looking for help from YOU, an aspiring entrepreneur! Working in teams, you will design a program to promote lemons and lemonade stands. You will learn how to develop a business plan and important marketing concepts, such as identifying the target market for a product or service and how to promote it, and how to carry out the plan.
Mentors with real-life experience will be on hand to guide your team through the process. Though the adults will share their business know-how, each team will be driven by their imagination and creativity. The program will conclude with your team making a presentation to a pretend panel from the National Lemon Growers Association seeking to select which team or teams will be hired as interns to roll out their plan to recruit, train and encourage other kids to operate their own lemonade stands.
While no actual internships will be awarded, prizes will be awarded to teams based on their plans and presentations. This hybrid camp will feature both virtual and in-person work.
Summer Camp Enterprise is offered by members of the Rotary Club of Edina and Rotary Club of Edina Morningside, in partnership with Edina Community Education.
