Summer Camp

2019 JA BizTown Camp

At this camp, kids run the place.  Sam Swope JA BizTown is a 7,000 square foot mini metropolis where they hold jobs, receive paychecks and run their own businesses!  JA BizTown is home to Kroger, UPS, Stock Yards Bank, LG&E, WDRB-TV and other regional corporations.   By working in one of 16 JA BizTown shops, kids learn what it takes to run a successful business, manage a debit card and checking account, and work as a team.
