Young people looking for something profitable to do with their
summer vacations can attend a summer camp at Open for Business,
in Halifax, and learn the basics of running their own business.

Two Break Into Business camps are scheduled to serve different
age groups:

July 7-11, for ages 9-12
July 28-Aug. 1, for ages 13-15

Both five-day camps run 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. The first three
days will teach the basics of running your own business,
highlighted by visits from young vibrant entrepreneurs and field
trips. By the end of the week, students will have run their own
business and will realize the exciting world of entrepreneurship.
Students will recognize various characteristics, qualities,
values, and attitudes within themselves and relate these to
entrepreneurship. Fee is $95, space limited. Pre-registration and
prepayment is required.
