Here’s what an action-packed day looks like with Camp Invention At Home

Get Excited for Your Program

Everything your camper needs will be sent straight to your home ahead of your program start date, so they’ll be set for a week of hands-on fun and exploration!

When your package arrives, your camper can set up their Innovator Workshop — complete with Pegboard, Toolbelt and Maker Mat — and grab each Inventor Log to find the online experience passwords on Page 2.

Camp Kickoff

Throughout the week of camp, kids join their Coach and fellow campers to start each day with a live online session that includes icebreakers, module instruction and opportunities to collaborate.

If your camper can’t join live, don’t worry — you will have access to videos that go through each activity step by step.

Create and Invent

Following a quick break, kids get back together online to make, create and invent with their Coach and fellow campers.

Afternoon Hangout

After taking a break for lunch, kids join their Coach and fellow campers to socialize, build friendships and gear up for the rest of the day’s hands-on fun.

Unplug and Get Outdoors

Hands-on STEM exploration continues as kids enjoy screen-free time and get outdoors with high-energy activities.

Collaborate and Share

Each afternoon, campers regroup with their Coach online to complete their final challenge and proudly share their projects and inventions.

    “The amount of materials and instructions given made it easy and fun for my son to create and design. He is the only child at home, so for him to be able to connect online with other kids, collaborate and just talk to people his age was important.”

    “My favorite part was sharing my invention idea with everyone. Actually, no, it was making the invention. Dancing to the music on the computer was so much fun. Camp Invention is the most fun I've ever had!”
