Testimonials! "This Camp Millionaire is an amazing tool that I will keep with me for the rest of my life. I learned so much while having lots of fun. The stories and life experiences made me understand how important it is to learn about money and how to handle money. The games helped also and whole thing was a grand experience. Thank you." - Samantha, age 15 May 09
"Money Camp was a great experience! It taught me many valuable things and lessons that really
will last a lifetime.
It was cool and I had
a lot of fun." -Sarah, age 12
"The most valuable
thing I learned at
Camp Millionaire is that becoming financially independent is your choice, it's not
a dream." -Julie, age 14
"For myself, being 18, I wasn't quite sure what to do with money other than spend it. Camp Millionaire has really impacted my life, in teaching me how to diversify my money and learning how to make money work for me." -Grant, age 18
"If you have not already detected my enthusiasm about what you are doing, let me reiterate that you have a wonderful concept and program. For so many parents, they view the time when their teenager gets her/his driver's license as a rite of passage into her/his independence. Truly, as important as driver's education is to their child's independence, so is proper money management. I think Camp Millionaire is a must. "
It's both a summer money camp program
and a school financial education curriculum
If you're an adult, chances are you'd be closer to your financial goals if you had learned how to manage your money and invest it wisely when you were young. If you're nodding your head at this point, you're not alone. Virtually every single adult we've talked to in our financial education journey has said this...
"I wish someone had taught ME about money when I was young!"
The simple, but sad, fact is that most kids grow to be adults who never learned how to use money wisely.
Camp Millioniare makes sure your kids and students don't have to grow up wishing they'd learned about money when they were young!
We want to change the paradigm around money in many different ways:
How we learn about it
How we talk about it
What we learn about it
When we learn about it
What to believe about it
Camp Millionaire gives kids the financial education foundation they need to meet and exceed their financial goals when they grow up.
Some questions for you...
Do you want kids and to be excited about learning how to manage and invest their money?
Do you want kids to understand the value of a buck, specifically yours if you're a parent?
Do you want your kids and students to be able to experience the best that life has to offer?
With Camp Millionaire kids and students learn the critical financial habits, beliefs, information, principles and concepts they need to grow into financially responsible adults.
And we all know this world could
This is a short video of our campers learning how to create an SSP (Savings & Spending Plan...aka, budget!)
Our programs are unique and highly effective for many reasons:
We use accelerated teaching techniques that turn complicated financial concepts and ideas into understandable chunks of information by engaging their ears, eyes, AND bodies.
Using a variety of games (including The Money Game), role-playing, activities, and other fun processes, your kids are never bored. Your child will walk out of our program with confidence and knowledge about the wonderful world of money.
We hold each child as perfect in their own being and empower them with the belief that they are fully in charge of creating their own lives now and in the future - and that includes how much money they want to have when they grow up.
We teach basic, time-tested personal money management skills and wealth creation principles and we do it with a twist...we make it fun and memorable!
We bring you, the parent or guardian, in on the process by inviting kids to ask you certain questions every night after camp. This helps open up the lines of communication with regard to money for the whole family.
We help our campers understand that they can do a whole of good in the world when they have more money coming in than going out. Just one more piece of inspiration to learn about money!
I was remembering last summer and how much fun the boys had at camp. Thank you, again! The valuable knowledge they learned about money is something I see them using almost everyday. I am so relieved they won't fall into the same traps I did. I also love how attending your camp has opened up our communication with them about money. I'm anxious to see how they will continue to use their money knowledge as they grow. I know they will both be very successful! With Gratitude!

This is a short video of our campers learning Creative Wealth Principles (i.e.,
Rules to the Money Game)
in "The Money Cow Game". Too funny!
What will my kids learn?
At the very least, your child will leave Camp Millionaire with a heightened awareness of the financial world around him. Most of them leave with much more:
How to make their money (jobs and businesses).
How to manage their money (budgets).
How to multiply their money (investing in business, the stock market, business and more).
How to think like, and develop the habits of, a wealthy person.
When to use other people's money and when NOT to!
How money can be used to give back and help their communities.
And so much about life we can't begin to tell you.
Camp Millionaire is based on simple money management and wealth creation principles such as:
Life is an adventure, let passion be your guide.
You are the CEO of your own life.
Pay yourself first.
Save early, save often, and invest wisely.
Put your money to work for you.
It’s not how much money you make that’s important, it’s how much you keep.
Interest is only interesting when YOU are receiving it.
Only borrow money when it's going to make you money.
And many more.
Notes about the Camp Millionaire Summer Camp Schedule:
5-day camps run from 9:00-3:30 or 4:00 pm each day.
2-day camps run from 9:00-5:00 each day.
We take several lots of breaks and a lunch break.
We move around A LOT!
Camp features activities, games, speakers, and projects.
Will my kids have a good time?
Camp Millionaire uses an innovative day-camp format. We use multi-sensorial (visual, auditory, kinesthetic) teaching techniques to keep your kids engaged throughout the entire camp:
Making it relevant: Your kids may not care about checkbooks and credit cards yet because they don’t have to use them. We show them why it’s important to care now so they don’t "pay" later.
Experience before content: Nearly every major concept is tied to a game, activity or process, which means your child gets to learn about the concept without even knowing it.
Repetition and review: A wise man once said "repetition is the mother of skill." Your kids will be exposed to the most important information multiple times in a variety of different avenues so the information really sticks.
Where Creative Wealth is headed...
Our very first Money Camp for Kids (now Camp Millionaire) was held in 2002 in a tiny room at the Boys and Girls Club with 39 kids. Since then, we have taught over 2,000 kids, teens, and adults how to choose financial freedom and develop the beliefs and habits to do it.
From our humble beginnings, our program and mission has spread across the United States and is even going international!
