Montecito Bank & Trust Provides Camp Millionaire Scholarships

Ten local kids will be able to participate in the popular program teaching children about personal finance.

Kids across the United States will be learning the ins and outs of creating financial freedom through more than 30 Camp Millionaire programs this summer. Formerly The Money Camp for Kids and Teens, Camp Millionaire is offered by Creative Wealth International, a Santa Barbara-based nonprofit organization that first started teaching personal finance to children in 2002.

Montecito Bank & Trust recently teamed up with CWI to help 10 Santa Barbara County youth attend this life-changing camp this summer. The camp was featured in The Wall Street Journal on July 2. Click here to read the story.

Camp Millionaire emphasizes immediately useful money management principles for children 10 and up. Using accelerated learning techniques, group activities, role-playing and games, campers explore cultural and personal beliefs about money and then learn the information and tools they need to grow up financially free. The curriculum focuses on time-tested money management principles such as paying yourself first, compound growth and investing.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
