Summer camp on Auburn campus will teach children to be money-smart and generous

AUBURN – Does your child think money grows on trees? Do you find yourself wondering how to teach your child about the value of money? Does your child care about people and how to make the world a better place? If so, this summer’s Camp iCare on the campus of Auburn University is an ideal option for you. Registration is now open.

Camp iCare, a new camp being launched this summer in July for children ages 6-12, is designed to help children learn the basic skills of being both money-smart and philanthropically engaged. It will be held Monday-Thursday, July 12-15, from 8 a.m. to noon at the Auburn University Early Learning Center on campus.

The Women’s Philanthropy Board, in Auburn University’s College of Human Sciences, is teaming up with the Early Learning Center in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies, to offer Camp iCare.

The sessions will include special celebrity visits from legendary golf pro Nancy Lopez and others, daily planned activities and a service project. Through Camp iCare, campers explore themes of financial and philanthropic stewardship and leadership using modern communication techniques.
