Camp Invention In-Person

Camp Invention In Person

Join friends for an awesome camp experience

Our in-person Camp Invention® program invites kids to build both imaginative inventions and lasting friendships. Campers explore how a microphone works, construct a solar-powered robot, design a morphing vehicle and build a duck-launching device — and then bring all their creations home with them. The best part? They get to do it all with friends.

Because our in-person program is led by certified local educators and has always prioritized health and safety, you can relax as your kid has their best experience of the summer.

Here’s what an action-packed day looks like with Camp Invention In Person

Welcome

Check your child in before our Camp Director kicks off a day of fun and exploration!

Teamwork

Educators, Leadership Interns and campers start out at Base Camp, where they get ready for an exciting day.

Morning Modules

Campers complete two creative challenges (or modules) and enjoy the healthy snacks they’ve brought to help keep their minds moving.

Lunch Break

While half our campers eat the lunch they’ve packed, the other half refuel with some well-deserved playtime outside or in the gym. Then they switch.

Afternoon Modules

Time for two more modules that will introduce video challenges from world-changing inventors, encourage your child’s curiosity, keep them active and spark their creativity.

Base Camp

Our campers regroup with their Leadership Interns to focus on problem solving – crucial for future inventing (and everyday life).

Camp your way - in person or at home

We know how difficult it is to make plans these days. So we’re offering a Peace of Mind Promise.

Secure your spot for an in-person experience today, and if you decide you want to switch to the at-home experience, you can change your selection up to six weeks before your program starts. It’s that easy.

    “It is fun! There are tons of things you can do. I also like that I can spend as much time as I want inventing and that the teacher gave me a compliment when I was making my clay controller.”
