Business Camp

Entrepreneurial Thinking in Action Camp

This isn’t your average summer camp! The Entrepreneurial Thinking in Action Camp offers a unique hands-on learning experience for students entering grades nine through twelve. We help participants develop their entrepreneurial leadership by delivering unique experiences that will activate their creativity, build their confidence, advance their teamwork, and grow personal resilience.

How do we do it? Over the course of the four days, participants will put their entrepreneurial thinking caps on and work in teams to develop a new business venture that aligns with their personal interests. They’ll get a chance to immerse themselves in innovative environments across the University of Calgary, and will work with experienced mentors, entrepreneurial students and world-leading instructors from the Haskayne School of Business that will guide them through the process. We’ll balance challenges with fun activities to ensure students are learning and playing. On the final day, we flip the script by working with an innovative Calgary business to deliver an active business challenge off campus that will challenge students to apply their newly developed entrepreneurial skills in a different context.

Young Entrepreneurs

Are you an aspiring entrepreneur? Come explore strategies for earning, saving, spending and investing wisely. In this interactive skill building and hands-on environment, campers will nurture their independence and develop life skills in leadership, team-play and responsibility. Have you ever wanted to turn your interests into a business idea? Learn how to craft a product and business plan that will allow you to think like an entrepreneur. On our field trip to a business in Calgary, you will have the opportunity to gather innovative ideas in a behind the scenes atmosphere from local professionals. The young entrepreneurs will pitch their products and business plans to their community of family and friends on Friday afternoon. Join us and come catch the spirit of entrepreneurship!
