Imagine a city where young consumers rush to the bank to deposit their paychecks, sales clerks create displays and reporters interview local business leaders to get the most up-to-date story. This could be any city in the country, but it is this image that perfectly describes a day at JA BizTown Camp.

Campers will learn how to manage their personal bank account, participate in job interviews, and then spend their week in their new positions running the business as a team. They will also participate in art and science projects, learn from guest speakers, go on a field trip to the Broward College North Campus, and have fun with engaging fitness activities.
