Something exciting is happening this summer

Friday, June 06, 2014   by: Staff



An exciting business experience awaits youth between the ages of 9 to 13. 

In its eighth year of operation, youth of our region will have the opportunity to participate in a 5-day summer camp unlike any other in our region from August 11 to August 15, 2014.  

Youth Enterprise Camp is sponsored by Community Futures Development Corporations (CFDC) throughout Algoma-Manitoulin, (Superior East CFDC, CDC of Sault Ste. Marie & Area, LAMBAC CFDC and East Algoma CFDC), Algoma University, local businesses and community organizations.

It is a one-of-a-kind business camp that enables all participants the opportunity to embark on a journey into the world of enterprise.

The camp also includes great summer activities including swimming, exciting outings, recreational games, campfires and much more.  

Young Entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to meet new friends, create their own business and they may even make a profit that is theirs to keep. 

Camp participants will be under the supervision of the Algoma-Manitoulin CFDCs and Algoma University.            

By the end of the week, campers will recognize various qualities, characteristics and attitudes within themselves that can be related to entrepreneurship.

Campers will also learn how to be a team player, a creative thinker, better their organizational skills and goal setting skills all aimed at self-discovery.

Campers will run their own “Business For A Day” on Friday August 15 at the Station Mall. 

This is a perfect opportunity for Algoma-Manitoulin residents to come out and support our entrepreneurs of the future.  

Youth Enterprise Camp will take place at Algoma University in Sault Ste Marie from August 11 to August 15 for youth aged 9 to 13 years of age.

This camp will host participants from Manitoulin, Espanola, Elliot Lake, North Shore, Blind River, Huron Shores, Thessalon, Sault Ste Marie, Wawa and areas. 

There are a limited amount of spaces available per community so participants should register early.  

Cost: $250, deadline to register: June 18, 2014.

For more information and to register, please visit or contact Madge Sanderson, CDC of Sault Ste. Marie & Area, at 705-942-9000, ext. 221.

Here's your opportunity as an enterprising young entrepreneur to be beat unconscious by the unions, robbed by greedy socialist parliamentarians, financially stifled by unproductive workers, disillusioned by excessive regulation and dismayed by the disproportionate profit compared to time you spend trying to be successful. Welcome to the world of business, particularly here in Sault Ste.Marie, where the only time anyone will wishes you well is when you're terminally ill. Oh and did I mention the fact that the overzealous regulatory agencies can't wait to shut you down for any stupid little thing...because they have to work too and they know nothing else other than how to enforce business killing regulations, ostensibly in the interest of SAFETY.
But don't let this discourage you from failing (by design) as a business owner.
