Welcome to Camp Innoventure

Camp Innoventure offers middle school entrepreneurial minded students a weeklong experience in innovative thinking and business development. Camp offers students a chance to learn creative critical thinking skills that are applicable inside and outside of the classroom. Students are encouraged in areas of creative problem-solving and collective brainstorming. Students also practice asking questions and learning the basic tenets of entrepreneurism. Camp involves local educators, entrepreneurs, and businesspeople.
Campers spend the first half of the morning learning curriculum and the second half creating a marketable product. Campers have created a wide range of products, from rock art to jewelry and even chicken feed, the possibilities are endless.  Past student-campers have even created jingles, packaging and logos for their projects. At the end of the week, students partner with the local Farmers' Market for public, hands-on customer discovery, interaction and practice marketing within a community-specific demographic.
Any profit students make they can keep!
