Event description
JA Waterloo Region’s Fish Tank Summer Camp, for ages 9-13, is an introduction to all things entrepreneurship!

About this Event

For nearly 50 years, Junior Achievement of Waterloo Region has been building confidence, leadership skills and independence by providing youth with programs focused on entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work readiness.

During Fish Tank, campers learn by doing. The best way for children to learn the basics of business is to try running their very own. The program engages students in hands-on activities that teach and reinforce concepts for a long-lasting impact. According to Holly Wiseman, Community Relations Manager (Events & After-school Programs), who oversees much of JA’s entrepreneurship programs and events, “When kids explore business education, it helps them gain valuable experience and transferrable skills that will contribute greatly as they grow into young adults. The life skills they develop shape them into well-rounded individuals who are better equipped to enter the working world.” These life skills range from resiliency to creativity, curiosity to innovation, self-confidence and the importance of giving back to the community.

Over the course of the camp week, campers take part in several activities and business visits to learn the process involved in entrepreneurship, manufacturing or producing a product, along with the challenges of running a small business. The group will also learn about the importance of Social Responsibility and giving back to the community. The week will end with a sales blitz where campers promote and sell their handmade products they have worked on during the week to consumers; taking home their profits at the end.
