UAB Money Math Camp: Wall Street (Day Camp - GEAR UP Birmingham)
Mon, Jun 19, 2017, 8:30 AM – Thu, Jun 22, 2017, 5:00 PM CDT
UAB Money Math Camp: Wall Street
This is a four-day (Monday - Thursday) camp that focuses on financial education and math enrichment. Each day, students rotate through four instructional blocks that will include lessons on investments and the stock market, a tour of the campus, a simulation, and time to work on a group project. Students will also be responsible for performing their own stock research and making buying/selling decisions. The UAB Money Math Camp lessons will require students to apply mathematical concepts to stock market topics, use computers and other tools and thoroughly consider the value and impact of money on their daily lives.
Drop off will begin at 8:30 AM on the side of the UAB Collat School of Business (1150 10th Ave South) closest to Epic School on 10th Ave South. Counselors will be there directing the process to make it as smooth as possible! Official camp activities will begin promptly at 9:00 AM. Pick up will begin at 3:00 PM in the same location as drop off. All campers need to be picked up no later than 5:30 PM.
If your camper needs to take medication during camp, please fill out the Medical Release Form and send the medication with your camper the first day of camp along with the medication in the original container. Camp administrators will be the ones administering the medication during camp.
