Summer is quickly approaching and finding just the right thing for your to do is a big decision that you make as a parent. Camp Invention is our top choice. Here’s why…
Camp Invention captured our attention last summer when both of our children were invited to participate. Each of them had an amazing time learning to THINK and become INVENTORS. It was an environment filled with curiosity where campers were challenged and teachers encouraged them to explore their own ideas. This year’s theme is Illuminate.
The 2015 camp theme, Illuminate™ where STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) meets real-world inspiration and lots of fun!
IlluminateTM will encourage your child to explore their inventiveness and problem solving skills with experiences that will harness their curiosity, inspire creativity and evoke a sense of accomplishment!
Your child will not want to miss out on the chance to imagine, tinker and invent prototypes that they can take home with them this summer! IlluminateTM will generate excitement and encourage a passion for innovation that will open up a world of new possibilities!
The IlluminateTM curriculum features five energetic and fun-filled modules that incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) activities, which will empower your creative thinker and further inspire them to innovate and solve problems!
Illuminate your child’s inventive spirit at Summer Camp!
We will be sharing about our experience at Camp Invention this summer with our girls and we’d love to invite you to join us at your local Camp Invention.
Camp Invention is the only nationally recognized, non-profit elementary enrichment program backed by the National Inventors Hall of Fame.
Over the past 40 years, and in partnership with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Camp Invention programs have encouraged nearly two million children, teachers, parents, college students and independent inventors to explore science, technology and their own innate creativity, inventiveness and entrepreneurial spirit.
