About 20 credit union leaders were in attendance at the day-long event, which was held at Truesdell Middle School in Topeka. The camp taught students leadership and financial skills. Students attended workshops on budgeting, saving, goal-setting, cash and credit. KCUA partnered with Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Jenkins to hold the camp. “Financial education is vital to the success of our state’s citizens and it must begin with our youth,” Jenkins said. “The Money$mart Financial camps are a perfect way to bring this invaluable information to young people so they can begin to understand how to make responsible decisions with their money.” The camp, endorsed by the middle school, was held on an in-service day, which means only teachers and administrations were required to report to school. The school opened for the camp so students could learn in an environment that was familiar to them.
