It is never too early to start your own business, and at Camp Entrepreneurship, that can be as young as nine-years-old.

Area kids are spending the week learning about running a business. Camp counselors say they want kids to learn how to create opportunity from an idea. Over the week campers create a town and set up various businesses. They learn about how to use and gain currency to make a living. These kids already know money is good, but the other benefits of the workplace can be even better.

"I like to make money. This prepares me for the experience," said camper Parker Combs. Cayla VonDal knows other reasons why the camp is a great experience.

" You can sometimes make new friends and you learn new stuff."

The camp has different sessions throughout the summer, and is $50. To learn more go to www.ndyoungentrepreneurs.com.
