JA BizTOWN CAMP
Two weeks during the summer, Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast, Inc. delivers the JA BizTown program simulation directly to campers of QIS sites for an exciting week long experience. The town is setup at a location transforming the venue into JA BizTown.
Elementary school students are not old enough to drive, work, vote, or be the boss. But that doesn't stop them from operating banks, managing restaurants, writing checks, and voting for mayor at JA BizTown! The program combines the typical in-class learning with two full days of running this fully-interactive simulated town; along with participating in other activities and Expanded Learning Opportunities. The program helps students connect the dots between what they learn in school during the school year and the real world. Through the lessons, hands-on activities, and active participation in this simulated community designed to support differentiated learning styles, students develop a strong understanding of the relationship between what they learn in school and their successful participation in a worldwide economy.
