Summer Camp Spotlight: Camp Invention

Let your child be a part of something BIG this summer—Only at Camp Invention!

School districts and organizations throughout Long Island are hosting the nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program this summer. This amazing, weeklong adventure in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) is the only non-profit elementary enrichment program backed by the National Inventors Hall of Fame.

At Camp Invention, we are all about big ideas! Camp Invention is a place where elementary students entering grades one through six will brainstorm, tinker, create and invent without limits. Children will use real tools, circuits and materials to build original prototypes. They also might take apart electronics to construct an epic, insect-themed pinball machine or create a multi-step invention to solve a given challenge. Children will find inspiration from inventors, including National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductees!

Led by local educators, children will work together to seek innovative solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills as they rotate through four modules that provide unique approaches to everyday challenges.

Camp Invention inspires confidence in curious children like yours. Not just for a day or a week, but for a lifetime.
