SFEPD Summer Financial Literacy Camp

In July, SFEPD hosted its first weeklong virtual Financial Literacy Camp for high school students to learn practical personal finance skills and professional development knowledge in a fun environment. Students expanded their horizons by working as part of a team in group challenges with others from across the country. The campers not only increased their financial know-how but acquired skills in communication, leadership, team building, and professional development. For their efforts, the campers received a t-shirt and a certificate of completion and competed for gift cards and cash prizes.

SFEPD’s Student Ambassadors, who train fellow college students in financial literacy skills on HBCU campuses, served as camp counselors. A counselor commented that she enjoyed helping the high school campers learn about financial topics and sharing life lessons with them. Learning how to save, spend and invest wisely to prepare for their futures were key takeaways for the campers. In the words of one camper, “I really liked this camp and would love to return. It exceeded my expectations!” SFEPD’s plans for next summer’s Financial Literacy Camp are already in the works.
