Will your child know how to manage his/her money when they earn an allowance or get a job? It’s never too early to teach your child the value of a dollar.

They can start learning this summer during the 2009 Money Management Camp. This camp is three half-days of fun-filled activities and loads of valuable learning experiences. Teens will get a private tour of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Credit Union including safe deposit boxes, drive-thru teller areas and the vault.

Topics for the camp include: the history of money, learning how to spot counterfeit bills, and learning how mutilated money is handled by the Federal Reserve Bank. Using real life scenarios and hands on exercises, they will learn about checking and savings accounts, how loans work, budgeting and the difference between need vs. want.

Participants will get a look into what types of jobs they might like to do in the future and what these jobs pay. They will also learn how to avoid the pitfalls of credit cards.

Kids will be rewarded for their participation by receiving “play money.” At the end of each day they will be able to “spend” their hard-earned cash on special prizes. Lunch will be provided each day. Camp is co-sponsored by the University of Louisiana Federal Credit Union.

Camps will be held for ages 11-13 on June 17 – June 19, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to noon. For ages 8 – 10, the camp will be held August 3 – August 5, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to noon. Fee for either camp is $65.
