Creative HQ

Do you like to build things? Do you enjoy making posters or creating videos? Have you thought about starting your own business?

Our Creative HQ program engages curious students in exploring the fundamentals of starting a real business. Through project-based activities, students will learn all about solving problems, thinking creatively, making products, and how to market their ideas. Students will explore the world of advertising by creating their own videos, building their own products, and meet with entrepreneurs from the community.

Every Friday of this camp, students will get the chance to sell their creations through a market day! At the end of the week, students will walk away with the knowledge and confidence to embark on their own entrepreneurial journey.
