G.I.V.E.: Girls in Venture & Entrepreneurship Camp

 

GIVE: Girls in Venture & Entrepreneurship is a two-day summer camp for girls ages eight and nine. This camp will be divided into a learning and creating component, and a selling and marketing component. Students will learn the basic skills of an entrepreneur on the first day, and spend some time creating/packaging a product which they will have the opportunity to sell at the Antigonish Street Fair (Stroll the Main) the following day. GIVE will be donating a portion of their sales to a local charity.

 

2018 Application & Media Consent

 

Various games and activities will take place on the first day of the camp to teach the girls about costs, revenue, and profit. This will be important background information for them to receive prior to making their first sales to ensure that they are able to set appropriate prices for the items that they are selling.

Be sure to stop by the Antigonish Street Fair on July 4 between 10 AM and 3:30 PM to see what fun products Girls in Venture & Entrepreneurship have to offer.

Important Dates:

  • Application Deadline: June 4, 2018
