#RoyalByNature is a FREE summer camp at Bartrams Garden for kids between 6-12 years old. Not only will they be fishing, boating, and learning how to grow their own food, but they will also learn to use cameras to tell the stories of their communities while engaging in entrepreneurial workshops, academic enrichment and 21st century skills support.
Here’s the video our young people created to help other kids resist peer pressure.
Bustlenomics (business of hustling in economics) is a program that teaches young people how to set financial goals for themselves and their community. While raising those funds they strengthen their mathematics and 21st-century skills. The goal is to teach our royal future how to create their own opportunities and strive for what they want to see for the world and themselves. They also use those funds to fuel their dreams in the Dreamcatchers program. We teach young people to break down their "pie in the sky" ideas into manageable tasks. No dream is too big with the right plan. We encourage young kings and queens to start building their empire one campaign at a time.
We use project-based learning with PA common core standards to strengthen their mathematics, 21st century, and entrepreneurial skills.

Our goal is to equip young people with a skill that can spark their interest in a career in technology while changing their communities for the better. Here's a music video we created:
