Summer LaunchPad - An Innovation and Entrepreneurship Institute

This is a camp for passionate young changemakers – campers with great ideas and a strong drive to share them with the world.

  • How do you take an idea and make it a reality?
  • Create a product?
  • Can you successfully have an impact on real-world problems?
  • What skills do you need to start out and succeed as a young entrepreneur?
  • What does it mean to pivot your idea or product?
  • How do you adapt your idea to meet the needs of the market?
We will delve into these questions and more! Campers will receive mentorship and training from a team of experienced entrepreneurs, businesspeople, and educators and will have the opportunity to publicly showcase their product and/or work at the end of the session. Campers will also have the opportunity to spend time on our 16-acre campus, play outdoor games, and enjoy our swimming pool. 

The program runs between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
