Clarksville, TN – Altra Federal Credit Union will host free Cash Camps for children ages 8-10. Each Cash Camp is a two-day session on Tuesday, June 9th and Wednesday, June 10th.
The first session will run both days from 8:00am – 12:00pm and the second session will run from 1:00pm-5:00pm at their branch located at 1600 Madison Street, Clarksville, TN 37043.“This two-day camp is geared to help young children learn the basics of money management, emphasizing the concepts of saving, spending, and sharing,” says Danielle Anderson, Youth Coordinator for Altra Federal Credit Union.
The free camp focuses on key financial concepts by incorporating hands-on learning experiences with activities, discussions, games, and other learning opportunities such as a tour of the credit union.
“I really appreciate that Altra sponsored this program. I believe my kids got a lot out of the program and they still talk about the things they learned. I even catch my older kid ‘working’ on her finance skills at the store when we are grocery shopping or running errands,” says Trish W., parent of previous attendees.
Altra membership is not required to attend, but registration is necessary to save your seat. Both days must be attended for completion, and each session is limited to 10 students. Refreshments and light snacks will be provided. If you are interested in attending, you can register online at www.altra.org
