Press Release
Posted June 13, 2018

Lorain County Community College will hold a new Lemonade Day Camp from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, July 9-11. Students will learn how to run their own business and have fun following the national Lemonade Day curriculum, with the help of NEO LaunchNET.

During this entrepreneurial College for Kids camp, students will learn what it takes to start a business. Working in teams, students will gain knowledge and skills to open their own lemonade stand. From concept to opening day, the LCCC entrepreneur team and community experts will teach valuable skills.

“Students entering grades 4, 5 and 6 will learn how to start their own business, from getting funding for the business, to going through whole process of being an entrepreneur, including setting goals,” professor and children’s learning center coordinator Michele Henes said. “They’ll research the product, come up with a budget and business plan, go to investors and get a loan. Students will then produce the lemonade and hold a sale in the courtyard on the last day.” Afterward, they will recap and see what went well and pay back their “investors.”

Friends are encouraged to register together to form their own teams. Enrollment is open to 12 students and cost is $25 per student.
