Camp Invention Offers Families the Freedom of At-Home or In-Person Learning

While all of us are eager to leave 2020 behind and look forward to the summer months, with so much uncertainty, it can be challenging to make definitive plans. Many families want to get back to the summer programs they love, like Camp Invention®, the flagship program from the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF), but many parents are still not sure how they feel about in-person summer programs.

For this reason, Camp Invention is introducing the Peace of Mind Promise. This new program benefit allows parents to select the format they feel most comfortable with either in-person or at-home camp — and offers the flexibility to switch their format up to six weeks before their camp start date. With either choice, our program is a one-of-a-kind experience that incorporates dynamic, high-energy STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) activities and unique opportunities to go outdoors, keeping children engaged and moving.

“NIHF created our Peace of Mind Promise to give families the flexibility to decide what works best for their own unique situation. Times like these reinforce our belief in how essential it is to help today’s students develop the type of innovative mindset that allows them to overcome adversity with creativity and perseverance.” Michael J. Oister, NIHF CEO

Step 1: Find a camp near you.

Step 2: Select an in-person or at-home format within the program registration form.

Step 3: After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with all the program details and a link that will allow you to change your program format choice up to six weeks before your start date. It’s that easy!
