2024 Camp Invention 

Two Locations: McAlder Campus and CCS High School

(Children entering grades K-6)


Illuminate your child's imagination with Camp Invention 2024

Camp Invention is a high-energy, interactive STEM camp. This year’s brand new program will illuminate imaginations, inspire curiosity and help kids build essential STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) skills through collaboration and problem-solving. Campers explore hands-on challenges and open-ended adventures designed to unlock creativity and help them shine their brightest!

This year's hands-on activity modules include:

In the Game

Campers transform into innovative all-stars as they engineer their own light-up ball game. In the process, they create a unique sports ball and explore the physics of motion and gravity. Then, they build a brand, create a logo and are recognized for their creativity by being inducted into the Game of Fame!

Let's glow

Campers explore molecular biology, genetics and optics as they discover illuminating inventions and engineer their own one-of-a-kind Glow Box. Along the way, they investigate the physics of light in LEDs, fiber optics and even glowing animals through hands-on examination of reflection, refraction, color and shadow. As they explore ultraviolet light, campers uncover clues to reveal a mystery and use the power of light to help their ideas shine.

Operation: HydroDrop

Campers are sent on an epic global operation to solve water challenges around the world. As a part of this mission, they learn about the important role that water plays on our planet as they personalize a robotic lab-on-wheels. By learning about water-based inventions ranging from flood control to water-cleaning devices, they transform into water heroes and planetary change agents. 

Prototyping Studio

Campers step into an immersive game show where they are empowered to mold and transform their ideas into unique inventions. They explore the innovation spaces of Our Nation’s Greatest Innovators™, customize a toolbox, and discover that the ultimate space for inventing is anywhere with anything.
