This hands-on, project-based entrepreneurship and business camp for ages 10-14 is run in partnership with the D’Amore-McKim School of Business (Northeastern University).  Campers will learn to transform ideas into viable products and services, innovate, problem-solve quickly and present confidently.  Campers will work both collaboratively and independently on projects during the camp day. Projects, activities and themes will be different for each session. Campers will also have time for daily free-swim and outdoor play. 

Each Session will end with a brief and informal presentation open to family and friends.

The program runs between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. for campers ages 10-14
