More than 30 high school students from around the state have completed the Business and Accounting Summer Education (BASE) Camp in Louisville, Ky.
BASE Camp is the Kentucky Society of CPAs’ (KyCPA) fully supervised, tuition-free summer business camp program for high school juniors and seniors. BASE Camp ran June 15-19, and students stayed at Bellarmine University’s campus. During the week, students learned the basics of business and accounting in a hands-on, interactive format that included trips to Spalding University, the University of Louisville and Sullivan University, as well as businesses and accounting firms. Students participated in team-building, group presentations, roundtable discussions with professionals, a business etiquette luncheon, resume crafting, and other skill-building activities, along with social events.
BASE Camp is sponsored by KyCPA and offered at no cost through its educational foundation, sponsorships and dozens of KyCPA member volunteers, who plan for the camp year-round.
Participating students were selected based on criteria that included grade point average and a teacher recommendation.
