ABOUT CAMP MOGUL

WHO:
Virtual Camp Mogul is available to rising 6th-8th graders.


WHAT:
Each daily session, led by our Camp Mogul Instructor, will be 2.5 hours long — this time includes group learning and team building paired with business development in small groups. You can register with friends to be part of the same small group or we can match you with a group.

WHEN:
Two sessions will be offered – July 19-23 or July 26-30. Each session is $150 and will meet from 9:30-noon each day.

WHERE:
In the City Camps Virtual Entrepreneurship Laboratory (ZOOM)

WHY:
Camp Mogul inspires understanding and pride in Jewish business stories—past, present, and future—as well as the confidence to become a part of these narratives. Our In the City Camps-powered Entrepreneurship Laboratory provides tween-age campers unique opportunities to explore and experiment with high-level business concepts, all within the context of a Jewish values system that fosters critical 21st Century skills sets (communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking). Based on these values and with a concentration on Israeli innovation, think of Camp Mogul as a Jewish “Shark Tank” experience.

SNEAK PEEK OF THE WEEK

The youth of today are the world of tomorrow, so taking the time to understand how they will be prepared for the future is so important. That’s why you may be curious about what a week of growth and inspiration looks like at the Camp Mogul Summer Entrepreneur Academy:

Monday (Curiosity / תונרקתסה / Histakranut): Entrepreneurs build a rapport among staff/participants, learn how to use the technology, begin developing some Camp Mogul business etiquette and business fundamentals, and most importantly, start brainstorming ideas that solve problems.

Tuesday (Creativity / הריצי / Yetzira): Teams get creative and begin developing the overriding concepts for their companies, developing mission/vision statements, honing in on a problem that they want their companies to solve, and begin to create a brand for their business.

Wednesday (Perseverance and Grit / חצנ / Netzach): Mid-week, we begin learning about and reviewing the nuts-and-bolts of business building, create our business plans, revenue models, and start working on a prototype service/product. 

Thursday (Creativity / הריצי / Yetzira): It’s go time! Entrepreneurs work on the design elements and branding of their companies. Teams will develop their company’s slogans, logos, and continue developing their prototypes. 

Friday (Calm and Composure / שפנה תחונמ / Menuchat Ha’Nefesh): During this exciting day, teams create a presentation and pitch their ideas for “seed funds” from a panel of Sharks/investors.

Cultivate your tween’s growth and build upon their Jewish foundation with Camp Mogul!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

CAN MY CHILD SIGN UP FOR MULTIPLE WEEKS?
Yes, we have two Camp Mogul weeks available. Sign up for just one or both!

WHO RUNS THE PROGRAMS?
Your tween will be working with qualified business professionals and students providing valuable insight and experience to Camp Mogul. Together, they will go through the process of launching their new businesses. 

CAN MY CHILD SELECT TEAMMATES?
Yes! We love to see friends participating together. Groups of three or four generally work as a close team; however, groups of two friends should expect more entrepreneurs in their group. We try to keep teams close in age so we can tailor the curriculum and experience. Please understand that if siblings or friends are more than two years apart, we may place them on separate teams. This is only to provide and ensure they gain the education and experience valuable to their age range.

CAN MY SON/DAUGHTER WORK ON A BUSINESS IDEA THAT THEY HAVE BEEN PURSUING AT HOME?
We anticipate all of our participants will be creative, ambitious, and some will even be so gifted that they will have their own business ideas already in the works. That is wonderful! However, we also ask that each entrepreneur comes to camp with an open mind. The entire team of three or four students must be in enthusiastic agreement about the business idea. However, students regularly take the skills learned at camp and apply them to grow their own business. If they have an idea they’d like to explore more, there are some great organizations in the area who offer additional opportunities for young entrepreneurs.

MY SON/DAUGHTER REQUIRES SPECIAL ASSISTANCE AND/OR DISCIPLINARY INTERVENTION IN A REGULAR CLASSROOM – IS CAMP MOGUL A GOOD FIT?
Unfortunately, we’re not yet equipped to support significant special accommodations at Camp Mogul. Although our staff to student ratios are extremely low, campers are asked to accomplish a lot in one week. If your student has an IEP, or you have concerns about their ability to participate, we strongly suggest reaching out to us prior to registration.

Disciplinary problems will be handled in a “three-strikes” manner (parents are notified for each strike). Students are asked to leave the program without a tuition refund after strike three. We appreciate your communication and understanding in these rare cases. We strive to create an atmosphere that is healthy, encouraging, and enjoyable for all of our campers!
