Program Structure:
-Throughout the week, campers participate in virtual workshops in which they learn about various topics including but not limited to; business models, pitching, ideation, and user empathy. All workshops will be held via Google Meets. Workshop links will be password protected and only shared to campers (and guests) to ensure the security of all campers.

-In teams, campers will work throughout the entirety of the program to create their own venture plan and pitch presentation while simultaneously completing smaller challenges.

-Campers who sign up are expected to participate in all virtual workshops to fully benefit from the program.

-Camp sessions run for approximately 2.5 hours. Wednesday of each week is our ‘Flex Day’ where students will have the opportunity to get feedback on their projects, participate in optional activities, or continue their projects asynchronously. We strive to provide as much flexibility as possible.

-Each 2.5 hour session is divided into smaller portions of time to provide students with a greater balance of live instruction and group work. Students may also choose to spend time working on their projects/activities outside of camp hours.

-The last half hour of each session will typically be reserved for groups to collaborate on challenges together and collect feedback on their projects/ideas.

-Upon the completion of the program, students will prepare a digital portfolio of their work to be shared in our final 'Entrepreneurship Symposium'.

-Campers who successfully complete the program will receive a digital badge recognizing their accomplishments which can be displayed on resumes/LinkedIn profiles.
