Camp Invention 2020
It is with great pleasure to announce the return of a mid-summer classic. This year, young inventors will be offered another great opportunity to exercise their curiosity. Camp Invention promotes 21st century skills and engages children in higher-order hands-on activities. Camp Invention is a non-profit organization that brings innovative ideas and allows young learners to explore through inquiry. This year's theme is 'Elevate' and offers new activities that will get boys and girls to spend time exploring connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Children will work together to seek solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills while rotating through several fascinating modules.

This year's modules include activities that involve the following:
Camp Invention: Champions
Camp Invention Champions™ is a module where children discover the game-changing inventors behind their favorite sports. By applying creative problem-solving skills and using inspiration from these great inventors, they develop their own games, equipment and sports facilities.
Camp Invention Flight Lab™ is a module where children explore the principles of flight with the help of their very own robots. Innovation takes off as children engage in hands-on, high-flying challenges and inspiring experiments.Rescue Squad
Rescue Squad™ is a module where children team up to protect the Earth’s ecosystems! As they’re introduced to real-world challenges in habitats across the country, children build prototypes, explore energy conservation, eliminate pollution and help wildlife.
Design Thinking Project™ is a module where children gain confidence as they express their unique ideas and learn the value of their creativity. By applying an inventor-informed Design Thinking Process, children are empowered to take their ideas to market and protect their intellectual property.
For those that are making a return to this year's program a $35 alumni discount is offered until February 11th. Last year's program reached maximum enrollment by February 13th, so be sure to register ASAP! Hope to see you there this year!

The Camp Invention Leader In Training (LIT) position is an ideal summer opportunity for junior high students (youths entering grades 7, 8, and 9) who are looking to build leadership skills in a dynamic, invention-based setting with children entering grades 1-6. LITs will be mentored by a specially assigned Leadership Intern that has received leadership training and certification from Camp Invention. Each Leadership Intern is paired up to two LITs and work closely on a daily basis with his or her assigned LIT to help them develop their own leadership skills and style. The Leadership Intern will coach and mentor the LIT to build skills that he or she can practice and apply immediately to empower Camp Invention participants to be critical thinkers, creative problem solvers and innovative inventors.
A Leader-In-Training has the opportunity to make a lifelong impression on a younger child and may be one of the main reasons they select a career in Science, Technology or Invention!
