Young campers are learning the value of business in the community through the Black Business Initiative. 

Keenan Brewer lead the camp but before he taught the kids entrepreneurial skills he had a few of his own he was learning.

He was responsible for organizing the camp, finding volunteers, finding the campers and organizing the week of activities.

“The camp helps to lead them in different paths,” he said.  “They were taught the importance of money and to understand the value of money.”

During the end of the week the kids took shop outside of Enterprise Square with their goods to sell.

First they borrowed the money, $20 for operational and supply costs.

“You have to pay back the loan,” said Jersey Organ one of the ten -year old campers.

The kids had juice and gourmet popcorn for sale.

Kyzacc Williams, nine, enjoyed the camp.

“You can make a lot of money in business,” he said.

Desmond Davis, seven, was in complete agreement.

This camp is planned to be held again next summer.
