Fish Tank Camp

Junior Achievement – Fish Tank

BBBSWR Opportunity

Who?: Littles aged 9-13
What?: JA Waterloo Region’s new summer camp, Fish Tank, is an introduction to all things entrepreneurship! Fish Tank offers campers an exciting approach to learning about basic business skills. With the guidance and support of JA camp counselors and special guests, campers are taken through each step of creating their very own business.
Over the course of a camp week, campers take part in several activities and small business tours to learn the process involved in manufacturing or producing a product, along with the challenges of running a small business. The group will take a walking tour to a downtown charity to learn about the importance of Social Entrepreneurship and giving back to the community. The week will end with a sales blitz where campers promote and sell the handmade products they have worked on during the week to consumers in downtown Cambridge; taking home their profits at the end! Fish Tank will shape your young fish into business conscious sharks!

Where?: Cambridge City Hall, located at 50 Dickson St, Cambridge
When?: Monday, August 20th to Friday, August 24th, with camp taking place each day from 9:00am-4:00pm, with extended care available free of charge from 8:30am-9:00am and 4:00pm-5:00pm
How?: *RSVP by July 27th below to indicate interest, if there is more interest than space available, there will be a draw. The typical cost for this camp is $185 per camper, but the camp is subsidizing this opportunity for our families by $105.00. Therefore, interested guardians will be responsible for paying $80.00 towards the cost of their child participating in the camp.
