Connect, create and collaborate from anywhere
For more than 30 years, kids across the country have found excitement and inspiration at Camp Invention®. Now, we’ve made our summer camp more accessible than ever before with Camp Invention Connect™.
Camp Invention Connect provides an opportunity for children in grades K-6 to safely explore hands-on STEM fun from home, at their own pace and in whatever format works best for them. We deliver an Innovator’s Toolkit directly to your door, with all the creative materials and step-by-step guides your camper needs to set up their very own Innovator Workshop and kick off hours of STEM fun. Participants have the option to join daily virtual coaching sessions with certified educators and fellow campers, where they can tap into the power of teamwork and build new friendships. Or they can tackle each STEM challenge on their own, using the guides found in the Innovator’s Toolkit and/or videos and other digital resources available online.
By providing all the materials and guidance kids need to dive into open-ended activities, we help them build the mindset they need to thrive, all while having the kind of fun they’ll never forget.
Encourage Any Learning Style
By giving kids the freedom to explore and experiment at their own pace and in a familiar environment, our program offers a fun and empowering experience for everyone.
We believe every child can invent — and we make sure our campers believe it, too. Kids gain confidence and persistence as they bring their biggest ideas to life.
Promote Problem Solving
Our world needs more creative problem solvers. So our research-backed program is designed to help kids find their own solutions for any challenge.
Support Limitless Collaboration
Designed to transcend any boundary, Camp Invention Connect invites kids of all communities and abilities to work together online and learn that everyone has something important to contribute.
Sign Up Today!
When you sign up for a specific week, this tells us when to ship your Innovator’s Toolkit and ensures that a spot will be saved for you in our virtual sessions.
A schedule to join optional kickoff and collaboration sessions with fellow campers will be provided by your Camp Invention Connect Coach the week before your start date.
Check out what families are saying about Camp Invention Connect
The all-new 2021 Camp Invention Connect program, Recharge, covers a variety of STEM subjects through unique challenges inspired by world-changing inventors. Coaches help kids make real connections through instruction, teamwork and outdoor play. It all adds up to a one-of-a-kind experience that’s sure to get kids thinking, moving and creating!
As campers take apart and rebuild their very own wireless microphone, they amplify their big ideas to become creative entrepreneurs. They discover sound waves in action, hear from great inventors and make a powerful pitch to promote their own amazing invention.
In this fun physics adventure, kids create and test a device to launch rubber ducks across the world. After earning “quack coins” to buy materials to build their devices, they send their ducks to visit famous landmarks, testing fascinating concepts like trajectory and velocity.
Kids make and adopt their own solar-powered, robotic crickets, and they jump into experimenting with circuits and energy. Using empathy to consider the lives of real insects, they create custom habitats — including a fun-filled cricket playground — for their awesome bots.
Campers learn how to adapt as they design morphing vehicles to race across land and add prototype elements for moving through air and water. With inspiration from cool creatures including a “plantimal,” they modify their vehicles to submerge, soar or sprint in a Super Road Rally.
