About Our Camps

Our immersive four-day, three-night summer camps held on Wisconsin University and college campuses challenge students to innovate and lead as they create, build and run a business from the ground up. Through dynamic speakers, manufacturing tours and hands-on activities, students leave our camps with a better understanding of business principles, financial literacy and our economy.

At the Business World camp, students are placed randomly in small groups where they are tasked to build a profitable business. Their daily decisions and competitions will earn or cost them points, and at the end of the camp, the winning “company” will be recognized in front of their peers, family and guests.

And, while educational opportunities and career exploration are always top priority as our Business World staff builds our curriculum, it’s the additional soft skills that are intertwined into the daily activities like networking, communication and problem solving that really set our Business World alumni up for future success.

I think this is very valuable, I think Business World is an excellent opportunity. The key takeaway I would take from the program is the experience of actually starting a business, launching a product, communicating and working with my team members.
