For one week, students come to experience what it’s like to be an entrepreneur. Exchange City Camp is designed to take the one-day experience of Exchange City and spread it across five days. Students get to work collaboratively with other business owners, build a thriving business and function as a citizen in a community. For one week the students come together to solve problems and face unique challenges. At the end of the week, parents are invited to come to an end-of-camp Business Showcase.
