Join friends for an awesome STEM experience near you
For more than 30 years, the National Inventors Hall of Fame® has provided safe and exciting summers, developing and testing a new, hands-on program each year to get campers thinking, moving, exploring and creating.
This summer, our in-person San Antonio, Texas camps invite kids to build both imaginative inventions and lasting friendships as they 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.
Our program is led by certified local educators in San Antonio and has always prioritized health and safety, so 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
Check your child in before our Camp Director kicks off a day of fun and exploration!
Educators, Leadership Interns and campers start out at Base Camp, where they get ready for an exciting day.
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.
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.
Our campers regroup with their Leadership Interns to focus on problem solving – crucial for future inventing (and everyday life).
Be prepared for lots of updates from your child about how much fun they had at Camp Invention!
