Entrepreneurial Fashion Camp
The end of the school year comes along faster than expected. We can already hear ourselves saying “Can you believe it’s already summer”? Now is the time to start planning for summer break, camp, and vacations. While some opt for overnight camp and park district activities, there is a new crop of city-based educational and recreational programs for kids popping up. One of the most interesting ones we’ve come across is Frankie’s Entrepreneurial Fashion Camp. With classes at Frankie’s on the Park in Lincoln Park and Lakeview, there are six week-long courses throughout the summer. They are guaranteed to keep your tween happy and learning some valuable skills while being creative and having a blast.
This course has the group of campers develop a fashion brand and sales launch. They work in a group, brainstorm, and develop everything from the logo to the collection to the sales strategy.
Budding journalists and fashion editors will love this course that produces a fashion magazine over the course of the week. From writing to style editing to design and photoshoots, the group collaborates to produce the next hot fashion mag for girls.
Paris Runway Show.
In the words of RuPaul, “Work it, girl.” This week focuses on producing a runway show and developing a fashion production from behind the scenes. The program finale is an actual fashion show in action!

The one thing that all of the courses have in common is teaching and empowering ‘tween girls with entrepreneurial, creative business skills—from collaboration and teamwork to finance and marketing. As parents, we want our daughters to have confidence and experiences to build on—and what better way to do it than in a fun, educational environment!
