Invest in Your Future with Youth Entrepreneurship Investigation Camp

Want to invest in the future? Invest in education. After all, today’s kids will be tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, leaders, innovators, and caregivers.

A comprehensive education requires something more than school. Extracurricular programs and camps provide invaluable learning experience that equips youth with the resources they need to thrive in the dynamic workforce of tomorrow.

That’s why we’ve created a program here in Nebraska designed to give kids entrepreneurial skills. It’s called Entrepreneurship Investigation (ESI) camp, and it’s organized by the Valley County Community Foundation Fund. During seven days of camp, learn critical entrepreneurial skills, meet with local businesses and bankers, and even sell their own products and services.
