Refresh Harrisburg is the culminating event in which 4 teams of teen summer campers from The Salvation Army sell items at refreshment stands located in downtown Harrisburg (Click here for a map of the locations) to demonstrate their knowledge of entrepreneurship and charity.  

For 5 weeks prior to the event, the campers learned about starting their own business, budgeting, marketing, and creating their own business plans to put their refreshment stands in motion. Come to visit each of the refreshment stands the day of the event to see their businesses in action and see their individual marketing strategies come to life.  You know you’ll be hungry and thirsty!!

Child Abuse Clearances are needed to be a coach for the 5-week pre-event teaching sessions. If interested in becoming a coach or volunteering day of, please email Outreach@hyp.org for more information.

Sponsored by: The Salvation Army Harrisburg Capital City Region and Centric Bank.
