Keeping Our Camps Safe, Healthy and Fun

Camp Invention® has always maintained the highest health and safety standards while providing innovative, inspiring experiences. Through the COVID-19 pandemic, we remain committed to providing safe learning environments led by certified educators and backed by policies you can trust.

Healthy Habits*

  • Masking Up: All campers and Program Team Members bring their own masks to camp and wear them properly to protect themselves and others.

  • Washing Hands: Campers wash their hands when they arrive, as needed throughout the day, and before they leave. Hand sanitizer is also provided.

  • Social Distancing: All spaces at camp are set up to ensure children and Program Team Members remain apart. Signage and floor markings are also used to reinforce safe social distancing.

  • Reducing Risks: Campers and Program Team Members must stay home if they have symptoms of COVID-19, and everyone entering the program location must complete a daily health screening. To learn more about how we’re reducing risks, please read our Preparedness Plan.

Safe Routines*

  • Picking Up and Dropping Off: Each day, a Program Team Member signs campers in and out, accompanying them to and from the building while safely wearing their personal protective equipment (PPE).

  • Cleaning Up and Airing Out: Frequently touched surfaces (doors, sinks, etc.) are cleaned and disinfected at least daily and between uses when possible. We also ensure ventilation systems are working properly and make efforts to increase the circulation of outdoor air.

  • Keeping Items Separate: We keep sharing to a minimum, making sure each child’s belongings are kept apart from others’ and placed in individually provided bags. All materials are cleaned and disinfected between uses.

  • Enjoying Lunchtime: Children eat lunch in classrooms or outdoors while maintaining social distancing. Tables or desks are sanitized before lunch and children wash their hands both before and after eating.

Peace of Mind

  • In-Person AND At-Home Options: When we started building our 2021 program, we didn’t know how the pandemic might affect summer plans, so we developed a program that would be just as amazing at home as it is in person. With either choice, your child will enjoy high-energy, hands-on STEM activities, collaboration and opportunities for outdoor fun.
  • True Flexibility: Want to reserve your spot at Camp Invention, but not sure if you’ll want an in-person or-at-home experience? No problem! With our new Peace of Mind Promise, you can reserve a spot today and select the format you’re most comfortable with now (in person or at home). Then, if you change your mind, you can switch your format up to six weeks before your start date. As long as there are spots available, you can also switch your program location up to six weeks before your camp start date.
  • Program Cancellation: We do everything possible to ensure each program runs, but if for any reason we must cancel your program, we will notify you as soon as possible. You will have the option to receive a full refund, or your child can join another available program. 


Simple Payment Policies

  • Payment Plan: You can choose our installment payment plan if you use a credit or debit card to register at least 10 weeks before your camp start date. It’s simple — one-third of your program cost is charged when you register, and the balance is divided into two equal payments charged automatically to your credit or debit card at approximately 30 and 60 days after your initial deposit.

  • Cancellation Insurance: You can purchase cancellation insurance at the time of registration for an additional $25 per camper. If you need to cancel, this will cover the registration cost, minus the insurance fee and any applicable materials that must be returned unopened.

  • Refunds: If you choose to cancel your registration and did not purchase cancellation insurance, you can receive a refund minus a $75 registration fee until 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the Sunday three weeks prior to the start date of your program.

*Our Healthy Habits and Safe Routines represent the guidelines Camp Invention provides to our district partners nationwide. However, each individual district has the right to adjust these guidelines to comply with their state, local or district mandates. These items are not exhaustive and are subject to change as new information becomes available.
