Summer Camps are More Fun Thanks to the Kinder Morgan Foundation!

The Kinder Morgan Foundation is supporting the 9th Annual JA BizTown Summer Camp for the fifth year in a row by providing eight camp scholarships! The camp will serve approximately 300 children, 8-13 years old, from June 25-July 20.

JA campers will manage their personal bank accounts, participate in job interviews, and spend their week in their new positions running the business as a team. They will also participate in art and science projects, learn from guest speakers, go on field trips on the Broward College North Campus, and have fun with engaging fitness activities. Thank you, Kinder Morgan Foundation!
