About Money 101 Camp

Westminster College’s Bill and Vieve Gore School of Business and the Center for Financial Analysis host Money 101—a summer camp designed to help middle and high school age youth understand the important role money plays in our lives.

The virtual camp’s 5 half-day sessions aim to simplify one of the more complex concepts of “adulting” through "live" interaction, "hands-on" activities, and individual instruction. This camp goes beyond basic financial literacy—students experience the process of buying and financing a house, applying for and managing credit cards, applying to and financing a college education, purchasing, financing and insuring their first car, and finally, creating, financing, and managing a small business. Additionally, participants will also spend time discussing managing money, investments, credit, and personal budgeting through a mix of presentations, discussions, and activities delivered by successful students from various Westminster business majors.

Sessions are designed to be adaptive and highly participative and will expose students to both the Gore School of Business and Westminster College.


The cost of the camp is $160, which includes the cost of materials, a financial calculator, and Westminster merchandise (including a t-shirt, book bag, and more). Youth from the households of Westminster College alumni, faculty, and staff will receive a $50 discount on the cost of the camp.
