Camp iCare

July 8-11, 2013

What is Camp iCare?

Does your child think money “grows on trees?” Do you find yourself wondering how to teach your child about the value of money? Does your child care about people and wants to make the world a better place? Is your child aware that they can make a HUGE difference in the lives of others at a young age? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions and you have a child ages 6 – 12 then Camp iCare is an ideal option for you.

Background

In 2009, Camp iCare began through a joint venture between the College of Human Sciences’ Women’s Philanthropy Board and the Early Learning Center in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies. Today Camp iCare is a division of the Cary Center for the Advancement of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies, an academic center in the College of Human Sciences. Camp iCare’s unique focus of instilling financial know-how combined with philanthropic responsibility is unparalleled in a university-based, academic philanthropy center.

Who should attend?

Camp iCare is a summer camp experience for kids ages 6 – 12. At Camp iCare financial and philanthropic responsibility are taught through engaging and informative courses, activities and field trip experiences. During this information-packed camp, students will become more in-tuned about being money smart and philanthropically engaged.

How does Camp iCare work?

Camp iCare is a four-day, morning camp for students ages 6 – 12. (Students must have completed Kindergarten.) During Camp iCare campers will participate in dynamic, hands-on learning and service oriented activities. The topics that are covered will include wants vs. needs, leadership, and giving (time, talent, treasure and trust). Daily schedules are provided below.

What makes this camp unique?

Camp iCare is the first of its kind on the Auburn University campus and very rare nation-wide and is dedicated to teaching kids how to be money smart, understand wants vs. needs, and practice philanthropy. Through this unique learning program, campers will develop their leadership and giving skills while making a positive impact on others.

How will Camp iCare help my child succeed in the future?

Camp iCare is designed to foster children’s imaginations, develop leadership, encourage compassion, and highlight the need for children to be money smart while helping others. After participating in Camp iCare we believe your child will feel empowered and encouraged to make a difference in the world.
