This Youths' Super Accelerator Program promises 11 days of fun-filled activities during the November-December school holidays that will inspire kids and teens to be young creator-entrepreneurs! Here's a chance for your child to experience and learn processes from design thinking-led product creation, to creating promotional and marketing campaigns, and finally, selling at a bazaar!  

There are two tracks:  #LILBOSS is for 10 to 12 YEAR OLDS, and #TEENBOSS is for 13 to 15 YEAR OLDS.

Our young creator-bosses will also have an opportunity to practice sharing during the season of giving.  In tune with It Takes An Island's value of inclusiveness, a percentage of the bazaar proceeds will be donated to their charity of choice.

WHY CREATORS' CAMP & BAZAAR?

This unique Maker Camp + Entrepreneur Camp + Bazaar program is the first of its kind designed for a new generation of creators.
