WE’RE GOING TO CAMP INVENTION
Starting on Monday my 7-year-old daughter and Amanda’s 7-year-old daughter are going to attend their first! Words cannot express how excited they are to participate!
A few weeks ago we got a special letter welcoming us to camp. The letter included directions about our “Take-Apart” Item. Plus tips for identifying and collecting Items to upcycle during Camp.
We’ve been searching around our house looking for the ideal items to bring camp. We have them all set and ready in a box to go to camp this week. I can’t wait to see what they are able to do with them through the week at camp.
I love that they sent a follow-up email as a reminder to be collecting items as well so we feel prepared for camp.
Here’s a typical list of what to bring to Camp Invention.
Preparing for Camp Invention
We read their website and research what a typical day at Camp will be like. Click here
One thing that we’ve done to prepare her expectations is to view the videos that are available on youtube from Camp Invention!
Here are a few that I think you’ll love watching and perhaps convenience you to join us at your local camp Invention too! My hope is that throughout the summer we’ll be able to use the skills she learns at camp to invent things at home as well.
