Review: The Young Entrepreneurs Camp

Sign your kids up for The Young Entrepreneurs Camp this June school holiday. This American-based program is highly recommended for kids aged between 7 to 15 years old to learn about self-discovery and creative exploration.  

Last year, my son attended the “Super Spies” – Innovation and Entrepreneurship Camp conducted by the same organizers and he LOVED IT!

Here’s a snippet of what they did at the camp.

What I liked about the camp was that it encouraged to kids to think “out-of-the-box”, challenged them to communicate and collaborate with one another and really helped to strengthen their interpersonal skills. I was also very impressed by the presentation that the boys had to make at the end of the workshop and the enthusiasm they exhibited throughout the 5-days period.

The Young Entrepreneurs Camp
The young trio of entrepreneurs learnt to design and create a toy (Star Wars Space Station) from recycled materials, then compile a business plan and pitch their business idea to potential investors (parents) who will invest with “real” money.

Who are the organizers?

The Joyful Learning Path (JLPC) was founded by Lorraine Paul, an advocate for life-long learning. Having spent most of her corporate time in advertising, Lorraine took time out to pursue her passion for education by teaching in Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s School of Film and Media Studies (FMS). It was her love for education that led her to become a certified trainer with the Kids Invent! program, developed by The Lyles Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Fresno California.

Her goal is to “nurture the young into life-long learners and to fill them with the fire of an entrepreneurial spirit and the passion to live life to the fullest.”

What will your kids do at the camp?

This year, JLPC is teaming up with student leaders from Victoria Junior College who will no doubt inject a lot of energy and different perspectives to the challenges set in the camp program.

Your kids will interact with these student leaders who are tasked to mentor their younger counterparts as they learn to design, build and create their own gravity cars, water rockets and straw shooters on the first two days.

On day 3 and 4, the kids will produce a prototype of their toy idea and learn the basics of marketing in order to prepare a viable action plan and present their toy invention at the Inventors Fair.

Date: 4 to 7 June (Tues to Fri)

Time: 9.30am to 5.30pm daily (lunch and refreshments included daily)

Venue: Victoria Junior College, 20 Marine Vista, Singapore 449035

I am registering both my kids for this camp as it is extremely FUN and a huge learning experience for them.
