June 1 - June 4, 2021
ComEd is proud to offer Camp Invention - Recharge, this Summer!
Camp Invention® is a nationally acclaimed summer program where STEM concepts come to life for 1st-6th graders! This program taps into kids' natural curiosity, providing them opportunities to become innovators through teamwork and immersive, hands-on, creative problem-solving!
The 2021 program, Recharge, explores sound waves in action as campers step up to the mic to reverse engineer a wireless microphone and become creative entrepreneurs while promoting their invention! Campers will also engage in real world mathematical concepts and engineering by building and testing a device to launch rubber ducks, experiment with circuits and energy with their own solar powered robotic crickets, and take on challenges in the Road Rally races as they apply nature-based discoveries and design a morphing vehicle that can travel across different terrains!

Discover the 2021 Camp Invention program, Recharge!
Explore Open Mic City
Dive Into Duck Chuck Pond
In this high-energy adventure, kids build and test a device to launch rubber ducks across the world. First, they collect “quack coins” to buy materials for their devices. Then they launch their ducks to visit famous landmarks, testing fascinating concepts like trajectory and velocity.
Hike Through SolarBot Park
Road Trip to Road Rally Racetrack
What They Will Get
Campers find their own unique voice and discover sound waves in action through reverse engineering, then market their extraordinary inventions with friends as creative entrepreneurs.
In this high-energy adventure, kids build and test a launching device to overcome challenges while exploring fun physics concepts like trajectory and velocity.
Kids experiment with circuits and energy to create a robotic, solar-powered cricket inspired by biomimicry, then use empathy and creative problem solving to build fun-filled custom habitats.
Children learn how to adapt as they design and prototype a nature-inspired morphing vehicle to submerge, soar or sprint in Super Road Rally!
