True to its BetterBanking promise, Security Bank introduces the Smart Saver Kiddie Camp. Aimed at enhancing kids’ knowledge on money management, the camp transforms its young participants into smart saver and smart spenders.
The Smart Saver Kiddie Camp is a three-hour program that integrates financial education with fun and interactive workshops specifically designed for kids 7 years old and above. The two-part camp begins with a short talk conducted by renowned financial experts, who are parents to young kids themselves. In the lecture, basic financial management concepts will be discussed and simplified for kids to appreciate and understand better. Kids will also be taught different ways to save money.
During the second half of the kiddie camp, concepts learned will be applied. The young participants will be asked to design their own coin jars, learn the basics of Singaporean Math or do a simulation of a shopping scenario wherein they can plan how to manage a given budget. It is during this time that they will be asked to prepare a savings plan that they will follow and apply after the session.
Perhaps the best part of the camp is the bank visit which will allow kids to tour a Security Bank branch, open their own Jr. One accounts and queue to make their first deposit. This experience aims to make the kids familiar and comfortable with banking as they grow. It offer an interest rate higher than a regular savings account with an opening and maintaining balance of only P100.
Designed to help sustain the knowledge gained during the camp, parents are encouraged to participate in the workshop to help follow through and continue their kid’s transformation to become smart savers and spenders. Not to be left behind, we guarantee that parents will also learn financial management tips and techniques that they can apply when managing their personal, family and even business finances. They will be introduced to bank products that will be useful in their pursuit for better financial management, one of which is the AllAccess, an all-in-one checking account designed to be a family’s transactional bank account. It comes with a passbook for tracking of transactions, a checkbook for payment disbursement and an Everyday Debit MasterCard to enable mom and dad to shop here and abroad without having to bring cash. Parents who are interested to avai of these bank products, may opt to do so during the bank visit. However, should they decide after the event, Security Bank offers The Human Switch Kit, a personalized banking service. This complements their lifestyle and allows these busy parents to set an appointment thru www.SecurityBank.com/switch-kit. Within hours, they can expect a call from a Sales Associate to schedule a visit wherever they are, to help them get started.
