Camp Invention - 2017 LAUNCH

2017 Camp Invention Program - Launch

Why should we consider Camp Invention for our children?


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.

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.

Launch Program (2017) - Have a Blast

Have A Blast™

Your child will fling, fly, and float through high-energy air battles while using physics to boost their advantage. Children engineer a variety of working tools, including “snowball” throwers, a giant air cannon, and more. Everyone builds their own high-tech Bubble Blaster with flashing lights to take home. This summer, Have A Blast that will last a lifetime.


Children will:

• Apply principles of engineering to create a castle from cardboard and design a pulley system to raise a castle flag
• Build an air cannon that demonstrates how air moves in response to force
• Explore aerodynamics to blast water rockets made from plastic bottles more than 50 feet in the air

Launch Program (2017) - Operation Keep Out

Operation Keep Out™

A young inventor’s dream come true, children create the ultimate Spy Gadget Alarm Box to keep treasures secure! They must decode a note written in invisible ink to find a missing tool, use spy glasses to catch a toy thief, and discover that both spies and engineers write in secret codes!


Children will:

• Take apart non-working machines and devices to investigate their inner operations
• Explore how the mechanical and electrical machine parts might be used in a Spy Gadget Alarm Box
• Express ideas for their Spy Gadget Alarm Box through writing and sketching

Launch Program (2017) - Duct Tape Billionaire

Duct Tape Billionaire™

We’re looking for a risk-taking, duct-taping dynamo to start the next big accessory business! Your child will experience invention with a twist in Duct Tape Billionaire. Children can choose to explore their imaginations and invent from scratch, or they can select a basic design to make their own. They explore patents, hear how to launch a business, and present their products to mock investors.


Children will:

• Engage in creative thinking to design and build their own duct tape creations
• Explore invention from a real-world point of view
• Practice the same skills entrepreneurs use to launch a new product

Launch Program (2017) - Mission Space Makers

Mission Space Makers™

This mission takes your child out of this world to locate and prepare a new planet for human habitation. Mission Control sends teams challenges to design inventions that transform the atmosphere, terrain, and ecosystem of an exoplanet. They set up a Space Lab to hatch eggs and grow crystal trees, take on the jobs of tomorrow, and explore beyond our galaxy.


Children will:

• Experience the power of rocket science by building and launching rubber band rockets
• Explore National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductees and NASA engineers who have developed telescopes, micro cameras for Mars rovers, and instruments that investigate planets outside of our solar system
• Work together to grow real plants as well as their interest in science and space

*ALL of the above modules are part of the Launch program, and your child will get to participate in all of them during their week at Camp Invention!

Dates: June 26-29

Time: 8:00 A.M. - 4:00 P.M.
