Biz Kidz Camp Offers Youth Way to Learn How to Start, Improve Businesses


The University of Nebraska at Kearney Center for Rural Research and Development is sponsoring the Biz Kidz Camp: Kearney, aimed at equipping youth ages 10 to 14 with the knowledge needed to start or improve a business.

The camp is Aug. 4-7 at UNK. Only the first 20 people will be accepted and registration ends July 25.

The cost to attend is $40 per student. Interactive class sessions will be mornings only Monday through Thursday. The camp will end with the ESI Expo/Sale on Aug. 9 at the Downtown Farmers Market beginning at Noon.

The camp is structured around UNL’s 4-H EntrepreneurShip Investigation Camp Guide, an interactive project aimed at youth who are interested in making money and learning about business. It includes case studies, activities and technology to help develop entrepreneurial skills. By the end of the camp, participants will have created a business and will be able to sell their goods throughout the summer.
