Camp Invention has been APPROVED as a qualifying expenditure, opening up the camp registration fees to be fully paid through this program. If the tuition fees were a barrier for you, this is a great opportunity to enroll your child to experience Camp Invention this summer!

Camp Invention 2023 - WONDER!
Build Big Ideas With Pop-Up Venture™
Children become innovative entrepreneurs as they design their own mini pop-up business! Campers create a business plan and choose how to spend their startup funds. Employing their imaginations, they add lights, greenery, logoed signage and other features to attract customers. After inventing unique ways to distribute their products, children launch their business with the ultimate pop-up event!
Create and Skate With Catching Air™
As children build their own mini skate park with ramps, bowls and rails, they take an exciting ride through physics, design engineering and art! Campers personalize their mini skateboards, create DIY skateboard riders and design awesome skate park features. Then it’s time to grind the rails of innovation as they kickflip their way through each other’s one-of-a-kind Skate Parks!
Show Your Style With MimicBot™
Children investigate the inner workings of their own MimicBot — a robot that mimics sounds — and transform it into a one-of-a-kind animatronic stuffie! They find inspiration in nature, get hands-on with design and use the power of intellectual property to protect their stuffie from the idea-stealing Copy Cat. Then campers take their stuffie home to keep creating and innovating!
Party On With Invention Celebration™
To create the best celebration ever, children become confident event planners! They have fun engineering light-up party hats, inventing a Party Assistant to help with their big plans, exploring color with bubble art banners and experimenting with sound as they create instruments. When the day of the big celebration arrives, children rotate between fun stations as they celebrate all their amazing accomplishments.
