At this camp, the kids run the place.  That’s because the place is Sam Swope JA BizTown®, a 7,000 square-foot mini-metropolis.  JA BizTown is home to Papa John’s, Stock Yards Bank, UPS, Kroger, WDRB-TV and other businesses you find in our own region. 
 
JA BizTown Camp gives kids the opportunity to experience what it’s like to work in a job and run a business.  But it’s much more than that!
 
JA BizTown Camp is an indoor, academic camp that combines classroom-style teaching with hands-on activities.  Much of the camp experience includes working with other campers of different ages on group projects. 
 
Concepts learned and applied at camp:
  • Entrepreneurship – brainstorming ideas and bringing them to life
  • Job preparation – applying for and interviewing for a job
  • Business expenses – what are they and how do businesses cover costs
  • Marketing – why and how to communicate your products or services
  • Customer service – why it’s important to business success
  • Tradeoffs – what to do when business resources are limited
  • Making money for a business – how costs and sales affect profit and loss
  • Teamwork – working with a group to reach a goal
  • Personal banking – using a checkbook to pay for things you need or want
  • And much more!
Enroll in Summer Camp or call (502) 561-5437 for more information.
