Pride Mobility Products Corporation generously sponsored JA BizTown Summer Camp at Junior Achievement of Northeastern Pennsylvania Inc. in Pittston Township.
Students entering fifth and sixth grades took charge of JA BizTown businesses as entrepreneurs, advertising executives, chief financial officers, sales managers and even the mayor of JA BizTown at the recent camp.
For a week, campers experienced what it is like to be an adult by working in their businesses and earning a paycheck, opening a checking and savings account, writing checks and paying their bills.
The camp took place in the Junior Achievement Mericle Family Center for Enterprise Education.
The Center is home to a life-size replica of a small American town featuring retail stores, a bank, café, radio and television stations and city hall.
Through the center's interactive sessions, campers share talents, gain new skills and learn the importance of giving back to the community, while having fun along the way.
