As a Leader-in-Training, your child will be at the center of fun challenges and creative STEM learning. When you register your child for the Camp Invention® program as a Leader-in-Training, you’ll give them the chance to take on a camp counselor role. While campers take on activities written by education experts and National Inventors Hall of Fame® Inductees, Leaders-in-Training will provide guidance and encouragement, inspiring children to do their very best. With this one-of-a-kind camp leadership experience, your child will not only have fun for the summer, but they’ll gain valuable skills for the future.
