Youth Entrepreneurship Camp – Opportunity for Arizona High School Students


Most Arizona high school student’s career path will lead them to starting their own business or working for a small entrepreneurial business (85% of AZ businesses have less than 100 employees).  Yet, there are limited opportunities for them to gain knowledge in this area (Kauffman Foundation research reports that 54% want to start their own businesses but the lack of know-how is a key barrier).


In June 2014 Tonto Creek Camp (TCC) is proud to this camp session at the Retreat at Tontozona.  Formerly Camp Tontozona, owned by ASU and managed by TCC, Retreat at Tontozona.
