Imaginations get their rocket fuel at Camp Invention! An exciting, weeklong summer adventure awaits with activities that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation and sharpen their 21st century skills. A program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Camp Invention allows children in kindergarten through 6th grade to experience real-world problem solving, creative thinking, invention, and teamwork. Children work together to transform the terrain and ecosystem of a distant exoplanet. They take risks as budding business owners, blast rockets, air cannons, and rubber chickens, and a wire circuit to create their own Spy Gadget Alarm Box! Local, certified educators lead a week of hands-on activities that fuel children’s confidence in their natural ability to dream and create.

Each summer we offer two 3-day camps. There are beginner, intermediate and advanced camps for children ages 6+ – no experience necessary. Each day at camp we will break into groups by age and will spend the morning doing horse activities (learning how to brush, tack the horse, etc.) We will break for lunch and ask that campers bring a sack lunch each day. We provide afternoon snacks and drinks. In the afternoon campers will do a daily craft, play games, scavenger hunts, as well as a private 30 minute riding lesson. Please be sure campers wear long pants and close-toe shoes (tennis shoes or a boot with a heel). If it’s hot, campers can bring shorts for the morning and will have time to change after lunch.
