(MAHWAH, NJ) – High school students and their families are invited to attend the May 18 Information Session for the new Financial Literacy & Stock Market Camp at Ramapo College of New Jersey. The session will take place in the College’s new Global Financial Markets Trading Laboratory in the Anisfield School of Business, Room ASB-527. Pre-registration is requested online at www.ramapo.edu/cipl/stockmarketfinlit.html.

The camp focuses on financial literacy and the stock market to help high school students form good financial habits. Through interactive hands-on activities, camp students learn about the importance of saving, budgeting and building a credit record. Each student is assigned a specific budget and researches and reports on the lifestyle choices the budget allows. Students will learn how to manage their money for when they begin to work. All projects are accomplished during camp hours. 
Students also become engaged in the world of finance and the stock market in fun and interactive sessions in the Global Financial Markets Trading Laboratory. This authentic stock market trading room, complete with electronic tickertape carrying financial data from multiple world markets, brings the experience of Wall Street and the global marketplace to the students’ summer. When asked how they spent their summer vacation, they can answer, “My parents gave me $1,000,000 and I used it to trade on Wall Street!”
