WICHITA, Kan. - Boeing Wichita Credit Union is launching its own version of Survivor for kids this summer. The over $400 million credit union will be hosting its first ever "Financial Survival Camp" June 21-22 and July 26-27, 2005 at Eberly Farm in West Wichita. Specifically for students entering seventh and eighth grade, the survivor camp, which will run from 9 am to 3 pm, combines food, financial training and fun to help kids avoid financial pitfalls.
