Varsity Tutors and Hasbro have partnered on a virtual, interactive, Monopoly-based financial literacy camp that has students learning about personal finance, budgeting, and entrepreneurship.
Monopoly Money Matters Financial Literacy Camp gives learners the chance to develop tools for lifetime financial success while playing one of the world’s favorite board games. Through live, interactive, expert-led lessons and Monopoly-based simulations, campers will learn budgeting and personal finance, marketing and entrepreneurship, and economics and business strategy—all through an engaging gamified experience.
Virtual Monopoly Money Matters Camps, for children aged 9 and 10, are available during the entire month of August. Six to nine campers in each weeklong camp will participate in two-hour daily sessions, plus bonus activities and special content from featured guest speakers. Each day an expert instructor will lead campers through interactive activities, discussions, and Monopoly simulations as they master a new financial topic. Campers will develop their own Monopoly “house rules,” properties, cards, and strategies to put their newfound knowledge to use. When daily sessions end, campers can head to their Camp Clubhouse for more activities to monopolize their time, including challenge quizzes and printable activities. The total cost of the camp is $250, or $25/hour.
