How does it work?
We’re building the future, one thinker at a time. Camp Invention runs for one action-packed week, typically Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Each day, campers work in teams as they rotate between four fun thematic modules. Each module brings new challenges to build upon what was learned the previous day. Just imagine what your child could experience:
- Collaborate to build prototypes, following the example of National Inventors Hall of Fame inductees.
- Upcycle and re-engineer with gears and gadgets, developing critical-thinking skills and creativity.
- Explore STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) enrichment, motivating a group to develop solutions to real-world problems.
By the end of one inspiring week, your child has gained confidence, friendships and essential 21st Century skills that will last a lifetime.
