“My daughter attended BETA Camp after SHAD. She absolutely loved it.

All students started extremely professional businesses with complex marketing.

It is a ton of work but so much fun, so much learned ... I was really impressed and I think it was absolutely excellent for her and for her entire cohort.”

Questions about the Program?

If you can't find the answer to your question, please contact us at

How do I know if my child is a good fit for this program?

If your child is already tinkering with different ideas and talks about money or want to learn about business. This is a good starting point. Our program directors will further help you with this in our interview call.

Is it online?


BETA Camp Jr  is fully online and conducted through live interactive workshops with our, program directors, mentors and instructors.

From the start, we intentionally designed BETA Camp Jr to be fully virtual for 3 reasons:

1. You can work with instructors from the world’s top companies to get exposure and discover careers outside of of your local community.

2. Students meet and work with likeminded peers from around North America and the world. Being able to work across cultures with people from different backgrounds is a skill all employers look for. Our students love that they can be in Toronto and work with team members in California, Ecuador or England!

3. Tech-enabled learning is better than offline learning. With the internet, the world is at your fingertips. We use remote work tools instead of what's available for their online school. For example, we use for collaborating. It's so much better than pen and paper or a whiteboard. Students can use templates, color code, set timers to vote for the best ideas, paste in information from elsewhere on the internet. When used properly, an online environment is more engaging and effective for learning.

Do I need a startup, a startup idea, or a team before applying?

Not at all! Students are not expected to have a startup idea or a team upon joining. BETA Camp Jr guides you through the process of ideation and using design thinking principles to narrow down the opportunity area and problem you want to tackle. Teams will be formed during the program. Students choose their teams and / or based are matched with a team based on personality, skillset, and interest by BETA Camp Jr staff.

What age group is the course suitable?

The course is suitable for kids aged 10-13.
