NOTE: The Meritrust Financial Bootcamps are open to all area students; Meritrust membership is NOT required.

Wichita Area Camps: Financial camps in Wichita are one-day camps beginning at 8:30 a.m. and ending at 3:30 p.m. The camps are split into three age groups: 4th and 5th grade, 6th and 7th grade, and 8th and 9th grade.

These one-day camps will be filled with engaging lessons while also incorporating the fun activities of summer camp! Students will have the opportunity to swim and participate in outdoor group activities, so they should bring a swimsuit, comfortable shoes and sunscreen.
Lunch and snacks will be provided. Students will receive a certificate of participation and financial education materials to take home and keep their money management skills in top shape!
