Camp Invention


March 27, 2021

Dear Parents,

It saddens me to announce that this year's Camp Invention program will not be hosted in Southington this year. Our concentration this summer will be to offer a enrichment/recovery program for children that will further develop literacy and numeracy skills. I do love the Camp Invention program and I look forward to bringing it back in the future.

Until then, stay well!

For Middle Schoolers (2022)....

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!
