Moneytalk Summer Camp is an opportunity for high school students, college students, and young adults to enjoy a fun-filled week of learning basic financial skills in a hands-on, interactive environment.  We will have experts in the topic areas available throughout the camp to provide more in-dept information and legal responses.

Students will learn how to:

  • Create a budget they can live with
  • Manage a bank account and prevent overdraft fees
  • Identify different types of insurance available, typical coverage, and why they should care
  • Prepare for all types of taxes - payroll, sales, property, and income
  • Take simple steps to protect their identity and what to do if their identity has been stolen
  • Pull their credit report, understand what it says, correct errors, and improve their score
  • Purchase a vehicle
  • Rent an apartment
  • Navigate a grocery shopping trip (note: a field trip is planned)
  • Make the different financial tools work together successfully
  • and much more
