Boot Camp

Work on your financial conditioning at OVB's Boot Camp!

The OVB Boot Camp program was created in 2005. Through the program, an OVB banker teaches a multi-day financial literacy workshop for 4-H members in participating counties. Basic lessons are taught on interest, check writing, deposits, bank account types, using credit wisely, and identity theft. Between these lessons, participants take part in a game where they juggle their own mock portfolio of bank accounts. They pay bills, earn money, and invest their money to make the most interest. At the end of the game, all accounts are liquidated and the participants use the play money at an auction for real prizes that they can take home.
