Mark your calendars! When the leaves begin to change, you know its time for Econ Camp. In 2014, Econ Camp will be offered at Camp Tecumseh near Brookston, IN on October 14 and 15, 2014. High school teachers of economics come together to network and interact with their peers, get up-to-date economic education training, and share best practices with each other. Thanks to the generous sponsors such as the George and Frances Ball Foundation, Purdue Agricultural Economics, the ICEE has been able to offer this opportunity at no cost to the teachers!
