JA Summer Biz Camp

Each summer, JACC offers an exciting and educational Summer Day Camp, offered in the JA BizTown® facility on Tryon Street in Uptown Charlotte. Campers, age 10-14 (must have completed 4th grade), spend a week creating their own businesses, inventing new products, and running their own simulated town for five days, as they sharpen skills in math, science, communications, teamwork, citizenship, business ethics and personal finance.

The JA Summer Biz Camp program provides campers with powerful programming surrounding workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy, as well as a number of other unique educational opportunities. JA Summer Biz Camp is the perfect experience for your young executive!
