The UW-Madison SBDC Youth Entrepreneurship Camp is for kids currently in grades 6, 7 & 8. The camp incorporates a variety of educational training techniques including classroom instruction, interactive activities, computer lab, and field trips to local businesses. The Youth Entrepreneurship Camp will be held during the day, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, and will be a hands-on learning experience designed to guide program participants in becoming the owner of a real small business.
Participants will learn real world business skills: team building, leadership development, financial management, verbal communication, and business etiquette through interactive lessons and exercises. Participants also learn how to successfully negotiate for business materials, set goals, and recognize real business opportunities.
