Screw Basket-Weaving, I'm Going To Personal Finance Summer Camp

Here’s four summer camps where kids will learn something really useful: how to manage their money. What a cool idea. I wish I had gone to one in my youth.

Camp Millionaire
Ages 10-12, $279-$300, Santa Barbara, CA, 5 days
YoungBiz Smart Start To Money Camp
Ages 13-18, $100-$300, Sarasota, FL, 3 days.
Camp Challenge
Ages 10-14, $350, Westfield, NC, 1 week.
Young Americans Center for Financial Education
Grades 4-5, $185, Denver, CO, 1 week.

It’s obvious that schools not teaching how to be a savvy consumer isn’t working so hot.
