New summer camp will be offered for high school entrepreneurs

4/18/2011 —

The Penn State Beaver Office of Continuing Education will offer a Young Entrepreneurs Camp, a new, five-day summer camp designed to attract high school sophomores and juniors interested in creating and designing a business. The camp will be held on campus from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, July 25 through 29.

Students will work in teams and learn how to conduct research, develop a business plan, create a trade show booth, and present a business model. Campers will work with Penn State Beaver faculty and student mentors and will visit and tour local businesses to see companies in action. On the last day of camp, a panel of celebrity judges will determine which team has designed the most impressive business. Friends and family are invited to attend this final event.

Participants will learn to use Palo Alto Software’s Business Plan Pro, recommended by The Wall Street Journal and Entrepreneur magazine as the leading, most effective software to use when designing a business plan.

This camp is limited to 25 students, so those interested in attending should contact the Office of Continuing Education as early as possible. Fee is $250.

To register or obtain more information, contact the Office of Continuing Education, 724-773-3700, or visit www.beaver.psu.edu and click on ‘Continuing Education.’
