About AYEC

What Is Alberta Youth Entrepreneurship Camp?

AYEC is a week-long camp for youth ages 13- 15 who are interested in learning about business and entrepreneurship. The main focus of this camp is to educate youth about marketing, advertising, preparing a cash-flow statement and writing a business plan. Campers set up their own businesses and use real money which they borrow from actual bankers. The last day is “Business Day” at the camp, where campers have the opportunity to open and operate their businesses. The youth also get to participate in many fun recreational activities throughout their week at camp.

AYEC accepts 60 youth age 13-15 each year based on their applications. This camp is FREE for the campers that are selected, thanks to the generous support of our partners and sponsors. There is also an opportunity for 10 previous campers to attend as Youth Leaders. For more information on becoming a Youth Leader, please visit the Youth Leader section.

The 2017 Alberta Youth Entrepreneurship Camp is now open for applications for Campers and Youth Leaders. Camp will run August 13 - 19, 2017. Application deadline is May 31, 2017 for Campers and Youth Leaders.
