The camps will feature a Lemonade Stand Challenge in which youth aged seven to 13 will raise funds for local charities. But, to do so, they’ll have to create successful lemonade stands first.

They’ll learn how to work together and create a winning business plan.

The Lemonade Stand Challenge camp is coming to Burnaby for the first time this summer, running from July 22 to 26 at the Alan Emmott Centre (6650 Southoaks Cr.).

“We are very excited and honored to be bringing our programming to Burnaby,” Build a Biz Kids president Braden Rickett said in a press release. “Our programs focus on equipping children with practical skills, which will better their futures and the neighborhoods they reside in. Burnaby is a mix of diverse and wonderful communities. We are excited to support children and charities in these communities.”

The Port Moody-based, not-for-profit summer camp organization is “on a mission to empower youth of Burnaby to becoming engaged community participants,” the press release says.
