Boulder, CO (PRWEB) May 26, 2015
Camp Inc., a Jewish overnight summer camp for aspiring teen entrepreneurs in grades 6-12, is announcing their preliminary lineup of presenters and local company tours as part of their summer 2015 sessions.
Camp Inc. offers three summer sessions based on age, and will run June 18 to August 12, 2015. Campers will be excited to hear they’ll be visiting the prestigious Moots Cycles company, a high-end mountain bike manufacturer based in Steamboat Springs, Colorado; the first of many exciting local company tours this year at Camp Inc. Each summer session will be doing a tour of the Moots Cycles production facility and talking with company executives, including the president, Butch Boucher, who has been at the company 19 years and counting.
Exclusive for the Explorers sessions (6th-7th grade program), Camp Inc. will take campers for a half day ‘behind the scenes’ experience to meet Backcountry Delicatessen founder David Pepin, a Jewish businessman who owns the franchise. Campers will visit the original deli in Steamboat Springs (Backcountry Delicatessen currently has four locations, soon to be five) for a chance to discuss the fast-paced restaurant business, learn about Cost of Goods Sold by actually ‘costing out a sandwich,’ design their own sandwich behind the counter, and sell it to real customers as the special of the day.
“Camp Inc. allows its campers to participate in all facets of the business world far beyond the common field trip,” said Mr. Pepin. “These campers want to truly understand what makes up the world of business and what it takes to make it happen. Inspiring!!”
For the Apprentices groups (8th-9th graders) and Entrepreneurs groups (10th-12th graders) in the third session this summer, Camp Inc. is taking them to a Rockies game, with a tour of the stadium and a visit with Ken Babby, owner of two minor league baseball teams, who will watch the game with the campers and talk business of baseball.
Camp Inc. is also hosting three teen entrepreneurs who are part of Independent Youth, a non-profit designed to empower teens through mentorship, annual events and competitions, plus regular workshops on business and entrepreneurship. These Independent Youth speakers are:
1. During the first session, Camp Inc. is proud to host Asya Gonzalez, founder of Stinky Feet Gurlz. Her online retail shop offers quirky apparel and accessories with a portion of every sale going to Asya’s charity ‘She’s Worth It!’, which aims to bring Action and Preventative Awareness to both Child Sex Trafficking/Slavery and backlogged Rape Kits.
2. Hart Maine, founder of Man Cans, will visit the second session of Camp Inc. Hart started Man Cans in 2010, which are scented, all natural wax candles made inside soup cans, the contents of which are donated to soup kitchens.
3. The last summer session of Camp Inc. will host 14-year-old Remmi Smith, host of Cook Time with Remmi, a health-based cooking show that aims to teach people of all ages how to cook.
Plus, as an added bonus in the third session, Independent Youth’s Executive Director Tanya Hamilton will attend to talk about their programs and even join Camp Inc.’s Shark Tank panel for pitch day.
“The teen entrepreneurs from Independent Youth are excited to be participating in this year's Camp Inc. program as speakers. Giving back to the youth entrepreneurial ecosystem is something all of these teens are passionate about. Through their interactions with the campers, the IY teen entrepreneurs hope to show the realities of being a young entrepreneur through their own personal experiences,” said Ms. Hamilton. On being a speaker herself, “I hope the campers come away a better understanding of entrepreneurship as well as a clear understanding of next steps they can take to start a new venture as a teenager.”
