During the week campers will learn all about the PEOPLE, PRODUCTS, PROFIT, PROMOTION, and PITCH it takes to start a real business leading up to a Shark Tank session with local business leaders. Along with launching real kid businesses, they'll learn the ins and outs of the stock market and buy and sell in a week-long competition to see who can turn their seed funds into the most profit.
