About Money 101 Camp
While youth and their households may have access to financial literacy through their schools and internet, a practical and hands-on approach to personal finance can help youth prepare to confidently and knowledgeably interact in their increasingly complex financial lives.
- Basic financial literacy concepts: budgeting, credit, and savings
- Investing in stocks, bonds and mutual funds
- Applying for and managing credit cards
- Applying to and financing a college education and selecting a major
- Income, employment, property, and sales taxes
- Purchasing, financing, and insuring a car
- Renting an apartment
- The process of buying and financing a house
- Creating, financing, and managing a small business
Five virtual, half-day sessions aim to simplify the more complex concepts of adulting. A mix of live, remote instruction, activities, breakout sessions, assignments, and projects are used by the Westminster faculty and knowledgeable undergraduate students leading the sessions. Youth are challenged to engage with camp faculty, guest speakers, and each other.
As youth progress through assigned projects, they earn points towards rewards (gift cards [Amazon, iTunes, Starbucks], swag, and recognition) offered at the end of each camp session.
Sessions are designed to be adaptive and highly participative and will expose students to both the Gore School of Business and Westminster College.
Enrollment is limited to 25 students per camp session. This offers the most engaging and personalized experience, keeping the ratio to about 10–12 youth per faculty member.
The cost of the camp is $150 if you sign up early by May 2. After May 2, the cost of the camp will go up to $175. This includes the cost of all necessary materials, an online financial calculator, camp t-shirt, and Westminster merchandise (including a t-shirt, book bag, and more).
A discount is available for households of Westminster College faculty, and staff. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the discount code to use during registration.
