Since 1990, Camp Invention® has been guiding children to bring their biggest ideas to life! Through the years, our program keeps getting better and campers’ ideas keep getting bigger!
Though this summer might be different from any other, together we can continue sharing ideas, encouraging creativity and inspiring the next generation of innovators.
Celebrating Another Summer of Hands-on Exploration
This year, we created a summer sweepstakes to celebrate 30 Years of Big Ideas and a chance for innovators to get outside and creative with sidewalk chalk! Participants were encouraged to submit a photo of their sidewalk chalk drawing of their next big idea for a chance to win.
Each entry received a surprise savings off their Camp Invention registration. One lucky grand prize winner, Seren B., won a Summer STEM Activity Pack for even more hands-on fun!
