2021 Summer Business Camp Success

Homemade Candle Business Camp

Social Issue: Mindfulness
Campers spread light and joy by launching their very own candle business! In between designing a business logo, creating ads and a video commercial, and selling to real customers, campers explored uplifting mindfulness techniques. They practiced being present and accepting their thoughts, feelings, and emotions, while having fun trying yoga, meditation, and dance! Campers considered the flipside of mindfulness — a lack of presence and acceptance that leads to stress and anxiety — and explored ways their business could help those affected.

Homemade Gummy Animal Candy Business Camp

Social Issue: Humane Treatment of Animals
Campers made every day a bit sweeter by opening their very own gummy animal candy business! Campers visited Madison College, which offers a Baking & Decorative Arts program, and learned to make and package homemade truffles. They also met with the owner of Edible Arrangements, which creates and sells gourmet chocolate-dipped fruit baskets. Equipped with a wealth of new knowledge, campers got to work creating a logo, ads, and video commercial for their business — they even sold to real customers! To round out the fun, campers shifted their focus from gummy animals to the real deal. They met a few furry residents of Henry Vilas Zoo and learned how the zoo keeps its animals happy and safe. They also explored how their new business could support the humane treatment of all animals!
