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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The tuition for Camp iCare is $140 “Early Bird” and $160 after January 31, 2013 per camper registered. Camper registration is on a first come-first serve basis and will be accepted until June 15, 2013. There are a limited number of places for Camp iCare so we encourage you to register early.
