“We have been running this free virtual camp for several years, and it’s amazing to see kids as young as 5 and 6 years old embracing financial concepts and successfully managing mock portfolios, said Corey Camp, co-founder of Buy the Hood Ownership Camp. “We hope to expose them to concepts and ideas that will help create future leaders in our community.”
In the program, young campers learn how to create a budget; how a bank operates; basic real estate and stock market terminology, select profitable companies; and navigate the cryptocurrency market.
