Entrepreneur Camps for Middle and High Schoolers Accepting Applications

ASHEVILLE, NC – A-B Tech’s Center for Business and Technology Incubation is accepting applications for its weeklong summer day camp for rising high school sophomores, juniors and seniors interested in business ownership.

The Young Entrepreneurial Scholars (YES!) Camp is a North Carolina Rural Entrepreneurship through Action Learning (NC REAL) Youth Entrepreneurship camp that will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. from June 13-17. Registration is $25, payable upon acceptance.

New to the program is a free Middle School Academy for sixth- to eighth-grade students from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 18 and 19. Both camps are held at the College’s Enka site.

“The idea behind the new middle school camp is to introduce the students to the ideas of entrepreneurship, creative thinking, and fun, interactive activities to engage students,” said Christy Ramm of the A-B Tech Small Business Center. “The two-day camp will give them the foundation for ideas and concepts that will be expanded in the full week long high school camp.”

Students will learn how to apply for a business loan and about resources in their community. They will also gain an understanding of entrepreneurship as a viable career option and meet and learn from successful entrepreneurs.

Space is limited and the application deadline is April 29. For more information and application information, contact Ramm at [email protected] or 254-1921, ext. 5857or visit www.abtech.edu/sbc/yescamp.asp
