You are hereDRIVE Camp


Got ideas? We're looking for creative young innovators to participate in a week of immersion into the world of entrepreneurial thinking and creative business development.

The DRIVE (Dreams + Resources + Innovation+ Vision = Entrepreneurship) Summer Camp at Marietta College accepts up to 48 students—rising 7th graders through rising 12th graders—for a fun-filled week of hands-on learning, skill development, and exploration.  


Students chosen for this day camp spend five days on Marietta College's beautiful campus and surrounding historic town meeting local business owners and innovators, learning about exciting new technology and opportunities, and creating and developing their own ideas for new ventures. Students can choose to focus their entrepreneurship project in the area of:  technology, art, energy/sustainability, education, or community service. Participants leave with a network of new friends, college student mentors, academic and professional advisers, and with increased skills in critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork and communication.


Artists at the REsolveStudio explain their journeys to the 2015 DRIVE Camp participants.


The camp runs 8am-5pm Monday through Thursday, and concludes with an overnight stay on campus Friday and a community presentation on Saturday. Students must commit for the full session.

Students from all participating districts are eligible to apply, but families should note that this is a day camp. Early drop-off and and/or late pick-up options can be arranged with advance notice. Cost is $100 per student, which covers all meals, supplies, and activities as well as a camp tee-shirt. Full and partial scholarships are available.

More information and hard copy or .pdf application forms--which include a scholarship application--are available by contacting Maribeth Saleem-Tanner, Director of Civic Engagement at Marietta College at 740-376-4561 or
