Camp Accounting has created a new training process, in a camp site-like theme, to demystify the learning experience and break down the basic principles of accounting using unique model called Accounting Trail Map (AT Map). The Map teaches accounting from the ground up, using basic concepts, examples, and activities to help absorb the information. The campers will be engaged from the moment they enter the room until the final interaction with the rest of the campers and training guide.
Students will walk away with the basic understanding of accounting principles, how each transaction in a business is like a tree, and how all those trees create a forest of transactions that tell the story in the form of two reports: a Balance Sheet and Profit and Loss Statement.
Why Accounting is Important?
Is your view of accounting cold, boring and a time-soaking chore to you, the business owner? Maybe you feel there seems to be no real purpose except the day to day transactions and balancing the checkbook, trying to keep money in the bank.
As an entrepreneur you are creating your company’s story while juggling many responsibilities. Being a good steward of your company’s money and resources is a priority but you find yourself searching for financial answers. Even though the accounting data in the software is organized, you are unsure of the story the reports are telling you. So you find yourself again just grinding through the day to day not knowing accounting’s true value.
But there is great value in understanding accounting (and its reports) once you have discovered its intrinsic meaning.
Accounting is a means to tell your company’s story; it has a history, a beginning, a middle, and if your company is not doing well, your story will end and we don’t want that.
