About

The Edwards School of Business offered the first ever Edwards Entrepreneurship Youth Camp in July of 2022. This innovative summer camp allows youth aged 9 to 14 to learn the functional areas of business and then apply their newly developed skills by actually running a micro-business and showcasing it on the last day of camp.

Participants will not only be able to develop a creative business of their own, but they will also get to interact with Saskatchewan’s entrepreneurship community. Experiential learning and business curriculum will be balanced with physical activity and games for an experience that is not only educational but fun!

Here is a recap of the 2023 camp and some of the media attention generated in previous years from CTV Saskatoon at the businesses and the innovative entrepreneurs behind the ideas.
