    • In the very first session, one of the camp counselors said that what you put in is what you get out, and this couldn't be more true. BETA Camp offers so much more than just information and lectures. The counselors provide campers with hands on experiences regarding growing problems in our world. This teaches us campers how to address issues and build solutions, providing experiences that create the leaders of the future. My personal favorite part of the camp is creating our own start-ups. This gives us guided opportunities during the program, but will also help us for making decisions and affects our actions long after the camp is over.

    • The program did a really great job of making the information more concise and understandable and finding a balance between lectures and interactive activities. BETA Camp has been more engaging and interactive than in-person camps I have attended!

    • BETA Camp has been better than some physical camps I've been to. In just my first week, I learned more about business strategy than any course could've ever taught me. From dealing with rejection to understanding exactly how enormous Silicon Valley companies functioned. All in all, BETA Camp was one of the most rigorous summer programs I've been through but I wouldn't trade it for the world

    • Going into BETA Camp I expected it would be similar to online school, but after just the first session I realized how wrong I was. With the exceptional job that the camp counselors have done with adapting efficiently and scheduling accordingly has opened my eyes. Online camp really allows for more room to grow despite the fact that it is run from home and remotely!

    • After just one week in BETA Camp, I already realized it's not like any other program. Not only do you find yourself immersing in lectures and participating in engaging activities, but you are also armed with an abundance of resources (connections with advice from founders, CEOs, and other industry professionals). The connections I've made with my team and how close we've gotten is absolutely crazy. This was definitely a once in a lifetime experience, and I wouldn't have traded it for the world!

    • At BETA Camp we're constantly put into situations where we have to work with new people, it has taught us that we need to push each other if we want to maximize our potential and that having a good atmosphere within a team makes working with each other much easier.

    • BETA Camp not only opened me up to knowledge in fields of business & tech, but also made it possible for me to see a much larger range of opportunities for myself in the future.

    • BETA Camp was a valuable experience for me. It was my shot at trying something new and it turned out to be a great choice. I learned that business is a vast field with so many things to learn about. But the best part is working on an idea and putting a lot of effort into it and seeing your baby grow.

    • My daughter has loved BETA Camp. She's learning real-world problem solving, communication, and ideation skills that aren't honed in schools. She entered the program intimidated as she was one of the youngest, but is emerging with newfound confidence and important skills for the future. Really impressed by the program.

    • I have learned so much from BETA Camp. Connecting with other amazing campers have really helped me become a better version of myself. I am a very shy person, but BETA Camp helps me step out of my comfort zone. I have never expected myself to email, connect, and DM so many strangers and engaging in conversations with them!

    • To anyone skeptical about the possibility of creating your own startup in just a few weeks, you really have no idea how much you will be able to learn and grow. Coupled with a helpful team, you can make a surprising impact in any industry. BETA Camp serves as a really good opportunity to get your foot into the door, even before leaving high school

    • I feel like camp is truly a place to make friends. Beta Camp enabled me to work with individuals of different skills and personality types and I would never have expected to develop incredible relationships with my peers. Everything from the people you meet to ideating is fun when you get to do it with friends. Thanks Beta Camp!

    • Beta Camp is an extraordinary introduction and window into the fundamental processes of business development and management. As someone entering a business undergrad, it was a super insightful way of preparing me. Strongly recommend beta camp for anyone interested in entrepreneurship or learning about business in general. Bravo zulu to the camp administration for making this experience possible.

    • It’s always scary putting yourself out there, especially in a virtual environment. However, nothing measures up to the incredible experience BETA Camp offers. The community was always uplifting, and I was surrounded by people who were willing to help me succeed. BETA Camp also allowed me to interact with executives from Google, Ikea, and various other industry leaders. I found incredible value indirectly communicating with experts in various industries, and forging personal connections with them. In all, the BETA Camp experience is one that I will always look back on and value. If you’re considering applying, I would absolutely recommend it!

    • BETA Camp is what Y-Combinator is to Adults; a startup accelerator that changes your life prospects right from day 1. BETA Camp is unique in the way that it teaches theory that you can immediately apply to your startup. Not many High Schoolers can say that they run a startup and what's better is that the program helps you build a sustainable startup that can genuinely make you some money to grow the startup even more. With BETA Camp, nothing is impossible and it will set an amazing foundation for your future and will make you more prudent in your capabilities. The BETA Camp community is there only to help you from the ground up, immediately lifting the expectation of you already being some multibillionaire! It is important to note that success with your startup only comes if you listen and take care of the work needed!

    • When first enrolling into Beta Camp I wasn't sure how everything would work. It was completely virtual, I didn't know anyone, and I wasn't sure exactly what I was going to learn. Little did I know this program was able to bring me out of my comfort zone and change my whole perspective on business. From attending the very first session I was able to meet so many amazing young entrepreneurs. With such a positive environment everyone helped each other grow and learn in so many fun and exiting ways. Throughout the program I was able to strengthen my teamwork, communication, and leadership skills while making so many friends that I will stay in touch with from all over the world. Beta Camp isn't an ordinary theoretical business program, it allows all students to create something original from nothing but a raw idea while applying all the essential knowledge learned through amazing workshops and activities. I'm so thankful for the opportunity to participate in a program like this because it is something I'll never forget. I would highly recommend Beta Camp to anyone who aims to help themselves grow and succeed in the business field.
