Summer Camp

Greenfields Young Entrepreneurs Camp
August 7-18, 2017

This is the perfect summer camp for entrepreneurial-minded students who love to explore their passions, are willing to challenge themselves, and want to make a difference in the world by creating their own business!

Over the course of this two week camp, participants will use a project-based learning approach to explore the exciting world of building a business, including identifying a need, conducting market research, creating a prototype, and calculating profitability. Throughout the camp, students will experience conversations with guest entrepreneurs, visits to local businesses, feedback from experts, and the opportunity to pitch their own ideas to venture capitalists for seed money. Each entrepreneur with a promising business idea will earn a space at our 4th Annual Children’s Business Fair this fall to bring their concept to the the public.

Through fun hands-on activities and daily challenges, participants will grow their confidence, build teamwork skills, learn new approaches to problem solving, and embrace failure as an opportunity to learn. This experience will promote a love of learning and an entrepreneurial mindset.

Greenfields Academy is a unique K-8 private school on the north side of Chicago which incorporates project-based learning and a strong focus on entrepreneurship. Last fall, our students launched over 30 businesses and conducted $2,400+ in sales at our Children’s Business Fair. We are excited to extend our entrepreneurship programming to innovative students from across Chicago this summer!
