June 5 to 10, 2016
Forget everything you think you know about summer camp. JA Business Week, presented by Arrow Electronics, Inc., is like nothing you've experienced before. It's a knowledge-building, confidence-boosting, network-growing, college-application standout of a summer experience. And if you aren't convinced quite yet, you should know that you'll stay in the dorms on the beautiful campus of Johnson & Wales University in Denver, giving you sneak peek into college life. JA Business Week is open to students who are currently in grades 9-12.
Unlike any camp, this unique program that allows you to explore leadership concepts and build confidence alongside more than 120 of Denver’s most dynamic and accomplished business leaders. In addition to interactive workshops on marketing, business ethics and budgeting, the week culminates in a competition rivaled only by “Shark Tank.”
Students attending for the first time will work on designing a new cell phone case and marketing plan for OtterBox, an electronics accessory company headquartered in Fort Collins. Returning students will work as consultants for Smoke Barbecue, a Colorado craft barbecue food truck. Students returning for the third or fourth time will dive deeply into what it takes to start their own business right now, with the guidance of three young entrepreneurs who figured it all out on their own.
