“The main goal of camp is to get kids outside and engaged with nature. However, our focus is to teach kids technical skills that they can use later on in life. The financial education portion that MSUFCU provides fits right into that portion. MSUFCU is laying the foundation of saving and budgeting which are life skills the kids will use after they leave camp.”— Shaun McKeon, MUCC Education Coordinator
