What is Rotary Camp Enterprise?

Rotary Camp Enterprise is an activity-packed, three-day workshop sponsored by the San Diego Rotary Club. Based on a program developed by the American Management Association, this all expenses paid experience provides a select group of outstanding eleventh-grade students with a series of panels, presentations, and group discussions that present a broad view and an exploration of the free enterprise system.

Rotarians assist the students with the planning and preparation, but do not advise the students on the details of their chosen product and business plan. In this way the students learn team building, collaboration and the give and take process of business by doing rather than being instructed on creating the best plan. Each team presents their final plan to a team of judges.

Every student is required to present a part of the plan before the panel and audience. Since 1976, Rotary Camp Enterprise has offered students the opportunity to learn from some of San Diego’s top business leaders in a fun and educational environment. High school Juniors who are interested in being future business leaders are selected to attend Rotary Camp Enterprise and are transported to and from camp.

Camp nominees from various schools are recommended by school counselors and are selected by the camp’s committee. Typically between 80-90 students primarily from San Diego‚Äôs public schools attend Camp Enterprise.


The next Camp Enterprise will be March 2-4 2023
