Now enrolling for Fall 2023, October 7 - December 16!
"BETA Camp has been the best summer program I have participated in thus far. The endless resources — especially the experienced guest speakers. Connecting with others who are all as interested as I am in this field was one of the best feelings, especially when able to challenge my limits alongside them."
"BETA Camp has exceeded expectations! I not only got to actually build a startup, but I got to meet people working in my dream job and learn from their experiences, learn business concepts not taught in school, and develop a network of like minded individuals who I will keep friends with for life."
"I think BETA Camp is definitely one of a kind. The connections I've made with my team and close we've gotten is absolutely crazy. It was definitely a once in a lifetime experience and I wouldn't have traded it for the world!"
"BETA Camp has truly changed my life. It's ignited a passion for entrepreneurship in me that I never thought was there before and I'm so grateful for the invaluable experience I've gained because of it. I've met so many new friends and gained so many new skills!"
"One of the most valuable things I've taken away is the importance teamwork. At BETA Camp we're constantly put into situations where we have to work with new people. We need to push each other if we want to maximize our potential."
"I've done multiple entrepreneurship programs for high school students. Even though they were in person and had smaller class sizes - BETA Camp is was a lot more engaging and interactive. I've never connected with peers like I have at BETA Camp.
"When I joined BETA Camp I was very shy, but BETA Camp has helped me branch out and become better at public speaking. I got out of my introverted shell and learned ways to turn being a high school entrepreneur into an advantage."
"BETA Camp makes learning virtually so interactive! I'd recommend it to every high school student even if they aren't interested in Business, Entrepreneurship, or Tech because what you are learning can be applied to all career fields."
"Other tech and business programs for high school students I have participated in have been theoretical. I never was able to put any of the plans into action. I appreciate that BETA Camp is aimed to help ALL teams develop and launch a real business!"
"BETA Camp really opened up my mind to new opportunities I would never be exposed to during school, or any other leadership programs for high school students. It gave me confidence in myself that I can achieve anything I set my mind to."
"BETA Camp was much more extensive than any other summer program for high school students as it did not only scratch the surface of business topics, many of our sessions delved very deep into them, which were great learning opportunities for me."
"BETA Camp is what Y-Combinator is to Adults; a startup accelerator that changes your life prospects right from day 1. BETA Camp is unique in the way it teaches theory you can immediately apply to your startup."
"I didn't think that I would have much to take away from BETA’s exposure to incredible speakers in lead positions of the world’s greatest companies. But I was proven wrong. It opened up a world of possibilities for me, painting a clearer picture of future roles I can now work towards."

“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.”
