Boynton Beach, FL, May 27, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- For ten weeks future mayors, doctors, fire fighters, police officers, pilots, TV reporters, judges and business owners will run their own town, learn real life lessons, tweens & teens interact with local professionals and visit the sites they are roleplaying. Starting on June 8th South Florida teens will report to GBDC Entrepreneurship Institute for an interactive, indoor role-playing summer camp. Campers ages 10-15 will participate in a variety of career roles, learn to manage credit, budgets, job preparation, negotiation and communication skills.
The Kid-Preneur Summer Camp includes excitement-packed learning experiences, where campers are in charge of creating their own small town and acting out professional job duties. Each Monday morning Kid-preneur elections determine the roles of each camper for that week, while each Thursday and Friday learning activities are reinforced with guest speakers and trips to the local city hall, fire department, hospital, university, airport and farm. The Secret Garden Café, a local culinary incubator, will provide hands on farm-to-table experience. They are excited to have the opportunity to host and support these local young entrepreneurs. “It’s a great program with so many reasons why we are excited about this partnership, but the opportunity to be a part of a child’s summer, and support a non-profit that creates and share this kind of great programming is the icing on the cake,” said Sheri Johnson, Executive Director of the Secret Garden Café Incubator.
In a fast-paced, vibrant environment, the kids will develop leadership and interpersonal skills while dealing with various life-learning challenges such as flooding, earthquakes, and other acts of nature, resident problems, budget crises, college admittance, opening bank accounts, resolving credit issues and many other unexpected obstacles and situations. “At Kid-Preneur Camp, we believe in the benefits of encouraging experiential learning that engages the whole child. Our campers learn by exploring, experiencing and addressing real-life situations. They learn to think, explore, and act. Money games are included and designed to teach financial lessons, guest speakers and field trips that show them a real city at work,” said Annette Gray, Executive Director / Founder of the GBDC Entrepreneurship Institute.
It’s summer learning with all the friendships and stimulating activities of summer fun. The campers get to not only build their town, but get to know them in depth as well, so when the actual field trip day arrives every Friday, it gives them real behind the scene workings at a bank, city hall, fire and police department, and much more!
Kid-Preneur Camp 2015 will be held at GBDC Entrepreneurship Institute, 3200 S Congress Ave. Suite 104 Boynton Beach at aprice of $150.00 per week. This price includes breakfast, lunch, snacks and trips. The duration is from June 8th-August 14th, 2015 from 8:30am-5:30pm Monday-Friday, with a two week minimum. “We wanted to provide a nourishing, fun and creative summer camp alternative with a convenient location, nutritious meals, snacks, and an award-winning program that truly helps create community and civic minded youth. We are quite thrilled to be able to help parents make sure their kids have a great summer,” says Chairman of the Board at GBDC Entrepreneurship Institute, Hubert Macintosh.
