Burton Academy School – Student Success Story

Much praise and admiration for the Burton Outdoor Academy Team for their hard work, innovation, and commitment, and to teacher, Dorian Boswell for excellent leadership in fostering students’ entrepreneurship skills! Great Work!

Copied directly from  ‘Igniting entrepreneurial passion. During his grade 11 outdoor education and entrepreneurship program, Cameron Olson redesigned an existing fire-starter prototype and developed marketing and business plans to promote/sell the product. The EZ Lite Fire Starter Kit was born and since then, his team has sold $26,000 worth of product and won a number of entrepreneurship awards.’
