Duck Tape® Partners with Camp Invention to Inspire Student Innovators

This year’s Camp Invention® program is shaping up to be one of the best yet, and we have Duck Tape® to thank for making it possible!

The classic tool for temporary repairs and everyday fixes, Duck Tape® brand duct tape is committed to inspiring young minds through self-discovery and exploration. In keeping with its mission, the brand has generously donated Duck Tape products to Camp Invention sites across the country.

Used extensively throughout Camp Invention’s activities, Duck Tape gives students in kindergarten through sixth grade the opportunity to bring their innovative prototype ideas to life.

Below, find out what a few Camp Invention parents have to say about how Duck Tape helped take their children’s creativity to the next level!

“My third-grade daughter is always crafting and building things with recyclables. Her creativity and critical thinking skills have improved a lot. She recently used a ruler for measurements to make a candy dispenser by following instructions she found online. Her shopping wants have switched to hot glue guns and Duck Tape. We are loving it!”

                                                                        Nicole K., Vermillion, South Dakota


“Rachael built our new kitten a cozy and sturdy home using cardboard and Duck Tape! I know her creativity and choice of materials were impacted by Camp Invention.”

                                                                        Mandi M., Tampa, Florida


“Camp Invention is one of the highlights of summer for my children. After camp they regularly ‘invade’ the recycle bin to use things in creative, problem-solving ways. I have a basketball hoop hanging off of my deck made from string, a cardboard box and Duck Tape.”

                                                                        Lydia S., Wooster, Ohio

Thanks to the donation and commitment to inspiring creativity, this summer, Duck Tape products will impact 130,000 children entering grades K-6. To learn all about how creators everywhere are using Duck Tape to realize their innovative dreams, check out the Duck brand website.
