Get an Inside Look

The Teen Entrepreneur Challenge is typically a residential experience. In 2020 and 2021 we were not able to offer a residential camp. However in 2022 we are moving back in person. Please view this short recap video to get a glimpse into what the program has offered in the past and will continue to offer in years to come. While our 'field trips' and experiences will be held virtually this year, the programming, experiences, and life-long friendships will persist.
