Our Leaders-in-Training program invites 7th to 9th graders to participate in the Camp Invention® program in a whole new way. They’ll guide children through exciting STEM activities during the week of a local camp program, encouraging creativity and hands-on fun while building their leadership and goal-setting abilities.
Leaders-in-Training play an active role in our high-energy camp.
They’ll find out what it’s like to be an innovative leader.
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.
