Investments & Personal Finance will introduce your son to the skills he needs to grow his hard-earned money into business opportunities, charitable giving, or whatever interesting project he can dream up! Campers will develop the critical life skills of prudent saving, spending, and investing — all under the guidance of two Northridge High School graduates and small business owners.
Why Investments & Personal Finance?
Making informed and effective decisions with money can have a profound effect on a student’s life. As future business leaders and heads of households, students must possess a virtuous approach to money, strong financial literacy skills, virtue, and discipline. The camp will incorporate hands-on exercises in a fun and dynamic way to help campers learn about:
- Financial Literacy
- Leadership Development
- Meaning of Wealth
- Building a Portfolio
- Risk Preference in Investing
- Importance of Virtue when Investing
