Mission Statement

Camp Invention is the only nationally recognized, non-profit elementary enrichment program inspired by the brightest inventors around, the National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductees. Our programs bring out a child’s natural desire to discover, encourages them to problem solve by inventing a solution, and we do it with certified local instructors in local schools.


At Camp Invention children are presented with fun, hands-on challenges that encourage creative problem solving, teamwork, entrepreneurship, and innovation. Camp invention is led by experienced local educators and new curriculum is introduced each year, inspired by the Inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame!

Because it’s a great opportunity for high school students like me looking for something productive to do. Learn more when it come to problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, and how to work with students. Also it provides 40 service learning hours, to those high school students who haven’t done their service hours.

This was such a great experience! Helping the kids, interacting with the staff and having fun was what this camp is all about! I had a great time getting to know the kids and seeing what they were capable of in the world of science.
