Last summer Drumheller residents saw many new businesses start up, but they weren't your usual businesses.

Community Futures Big Country's 'I'm the Boss' summer camps are back again for another year.

"Our first camp starts on July 10 and our last camp ends up August 14, so we do five camps throughout the summer," stated spokesman, Shae-Lynn Skytt.

In 2016, the summer business camps had about 41 participants.

"In total they made just over $5,000 between their businesses, so that was pretty cool. Our top seller ended up making just over $600, so it's something we're very proud of and hope to see again this summer," Skytt outlined.

So, when do the kids in grade four to six start their summer camp?

"Their first camp is July 24 to the 28, so we want to get the seven to nine's in there to get them used to the program and then we'll throw in the four to six's. The last camp again is August 14 to the 18th and we're thinking of doing a wrap up, but we're not too sure about that yet," explained Skytt.

If someone is interested in registering their child, a form can be found online.

"If you go to Community Futures Big Country website, under our current events page there is a registration from on there. They can also drop by the office, grab a registration form from me and go from there."
