Have you ever heard of Young Ameritowne camp? If not, this is a camp were you get a day to have a job in a place above the Young Americans Bank. This place is a mini representation of a town where you can sign up for jobs and pay taxes as if you were an adult. I was a Photojournalist at the TV station. I took videos of commercials and edited them together.
The 3 most important things I learned at Ameritowne Camp were:
Writing checks: Knowing how to write checks is very important for businesses and personally.
Writing a check book register: Keeping a check register is important because it shows you what your balance is.
Paying taxes: Paying taxes is no fun :( but they fund public resources like roads, schools, Libraries, parks, etc.
These were the three most important things I learned at Young Ameritowne Camp.
In conclusion, Ameritowne Camp was a great experience and I learned a lot about how a normal work day is for many adults. I highly recommend Young Ameritowne Camp for kids going into 5th and 6th grade.
