Financial Camp


As a practical matter, every adult has to deal with money and interact with a number of financial institutions in the course of daily life. Yet, among the subjects students are taught in school, there is not much focus on managing money. Financial Camp is a practical introduction to the everyday interactions we all have with money. Students can expect to be busy with hands-on activities. They will role play as their own financial selves: opening bank accounts, shopping, paying bills, receiving paychecks, processing account statements, and considering investments. We'll present realistic simulations of several banking interactions. We'll study the fictional story of a family's venture in the stock market. Students will learn a number of financial terms and concepts, including from explanations presented to the class by students. We'll also play some games.
