Summer Camps

Our 5-day summer camps for youth pioneered by the JDR Family Foundation aim to provide students with a strong foundation of money management, budgeting, and saving. Through a series of high-energy games, stimulating discussions and group projects, this educational program creates a lasting impact on the students’ thoughts and beliefs about money, as well as encourages them to work towards a financially secure life.

The average college student graduates with over $19,000 in student debt, and more than $3,500 in credit card debt. There are a number of studies that state that financial literacy education doesn’t work and has no effect on the future saving and investing behavior. We disagree; it’s not the education that doesn’t work, it’s the delivery method. Wealthy Habits summer camps don’t focus on whether a student can memorize the information and pass a test, but on changing their attitude towards managing their current and future finances and providing them with the interest to learn more even after they have left camp.

A working understanding of money, managing debt, and investing is essential for everyone, including young adults. In the absence of that, many individuals fumble over financial decisions, learning by trial and error, often ending up with bad credit, little or no savings, and a ton of debt. Students who participate in Wealthy Habits summer camps are exposed to new ways of thinking about money and finance. They develop a mature understanding of budgeting and investing, and also learn about the importance of planning for the future. Wealthy Habits provides students with the right skill set so that they can navigate their financial future with confidence and purpose.

My daughter and her friend really enjoyed the program!
Teens don’t get excited about much, but they were smiling

Thank you so much for this opportunity.
