JA BizTown® Summer Camp 2015

Runs 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.*
Weeks available:

  • June 8-12
    June 15-19
    June 22-26

    July 6-10
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. 
* Due to limited staff resources, extended care is not available.  JA can accept responsibility for campers only between the hours of 8:45 a.m. and 4:15 p.m.
