The State Farm Summer Business Camp exposes middle school students to the basics of the business world. Students form business teams, write business plans, develop marketing strategies, and create PowerPoint presentations of their work for the final competition.

Openings are limited to 40 rising seventh and eighth grade students each year for this tuition-free, two-week day camp. BEP Summer Business Camp is generously sponsored by State Farm.

"The Business Camp not only taught the fundamentals of business and the keys to success within it, the camp puts you in the shoes of someone starting a business and teaches you the most effective way to do it."
