Price $225 | For children entering grades K–6

Camp Invention’s all-new summer program, Fast Forward, allows children in grades K-6 to turn their wildest dreams into a reality. Campers will create a vehicle of the future, design a mechanical robot dog, build futuristic dream homes, and make dinos dance using wind-up gearboxes! Experienced local educators lead the week of fun, hands-on, STEM activities that encourage children to think big, explore their curiosity, and never give up.

What is Camp Invention?

Camp Invention is one week in the summer where your child’s creativity, innovation, and problem-solving skills are challenged and developed in fun and exciting ways. Our top priority is to inspire future innovators and build their confidence in the natural ability to dream and create.

Who is Camp Invention for?

Any child entering kindergarten through 6th grade! The curriculum is designed with each child in mind, featuring fun, age-appropriate activities.

Camp Invention has a Counselor-in-Training Program for Grades 7-9 and a Leadership Intern Program for Grades 10-12 & College Students! 

Why should I consider Camp Invention?

Camp Invention is the only nationally recognized, non-profit elementary enrichment program inspired by the brightest thinkers around, the National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductees. We know how to tap into your child’s natural need to discover and we do it with certified local instructors.
