About Money 101 Camp

Money 101 Camp is hosted by Westminster College’s Bill and Vieve Gore School of Business and Center for Financial Wellness.

While middle and high school aged 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.

Concepts Covered

  • 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

Format

Money 101 is being offered in both live, virtual AND live, in-person formats for 2022.  Each camp session includes five, half-day sessions aiming to simplify the more complex concepts of adulting. A mix of 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, 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 Limit

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.

Cost

The cost of the camp is $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).
