Thirty nine students from twenty West Virginia high schools participated in the week’s camping program, including campfires, swimming, hiking, and games, while concentrating on lessons and activities related to teamwork and an understanding of the free enterprise system. The student group took introductory field trips to several businesses and agencies in Tucker County, including restaurants, the Tucker County Convention & Visitors Bureau, state parks, and the Mount Storm Wind Energy facility. The annual Entrepreneurship Summit is a project of the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce.
