All camps run Monday to Friday 9am - 3pm
Class experiences & learning are performed both inside our learning labs & outdoors at parks close by for Fun in the Sun!
This isn’t your typical Lemonade Stand. We take it on full force, just like a real business!
In our Lemonade Stand Summer Camp Challenge, camps are divided into two teams who take on one another to mix their own recipes, conduct their own test marketing, design their own branding, and offer customer service above and beyond anything you have ever experienced!
But in this challenge, every team is a winner! We learn and reflect on each teams wins and losses, what worked and what received a lower response plus how we can improve it for the future. All proceeds earned in their challenge are donated to local charities to really show kids how a bit of learning, a lot of fun and a ton of teamwork can really do great things for the community!
Soft skills are also big takeaways! Customer service & body language, leadership and teamwork roles, assertiveness and communication are all worked on together in an inclusive & encouraging environment.

Will My Child Learn How To Start Their Own Business?
Our Summer Camps are a great first exposure to entrepreneurship for kids. In just 1 week, they work with a team and learn all of the fundamental areas an entrepreneur needs to know. Branding, marketing, pricing & costs, customer service and so on. Summer is also meant for Sun in the Sun! So our summer camps are more team oriented and collaborative.
For a more advanced development into entrepreneurship, be sure to look at our after school programs run 3 times a year. It is in these programs that each child really get's the start to finish look at launching their own micro business. More on these programs can be found here
What Do I Need To Supply My Child With For This Camp?
We have you covered! Each child will be given a T-shirt on day 1 that we ask they wear on each day of their camp. They will also receive other swag such as a and materials to work with during class. All we ask is that your child arrives on time and is picked up after class and brings a lunch and snacks just like at school. We supply the rest!
