Camp Activities

Each day, students entering grades K-6 are immersed in innovative, fun-filled, hands-on adventures that enhance their understanding of science, math, history and the arts. The curriculum is grounded in sound scientific principles and has kids laughing and creating inventions. Hands-on, inquiry-based learning is emphasized in integrated curricula that align with national and state standards. All programs include the Camp Invention favorite, "Take Apart/I Can Invent" module, in which children take apart old, broken appliances and use their parts to invent something new!

Each Camp Invention program contains innovative modules that have been carefully tested and piloted for several years before they are nationally launched. The curricula for all modules are aligned with national and state education standards. By popular demand, all Camp Invention programs feature the renowned I Can InventTM  module.
