At Camp Invention, children rotate through four fun modules a day, where they work in diverse teams to engage in investigations, experiments and engineering challenges. Our curriculum writers use rigorous testing each year to deliver new and exciting modules that meet national and state education standards while offering your child hands-on activities that make learning fun.


The MORPHED! Program

A week of imaginative modules builds real-world skills for the future.

Amplified

In our Amplified module, your child will explore the dynamic realm of the five senses on a bionic adventure. She’ll join a research team and unlock clues to uncover nature’s blueprints, which hold the key to superhuman senses. To build essential STEM skills, she’ll develop bionic gadgets and explore sensory illusions. She’ll even shoot information down zip-lines to a bionic brain in a final challenge to decode a mega-sensory mix-up. Amplify your child’s senses in this sensational module!

Super Go

Your child will create morphing vehicles that operate on land, in the air and underwater in our exciting Super Go module. He’ll utilize nature’s designs to explore energy, fuel, movement and animal features, and then he’ll apply these discoveries to motor-powered vehicles, in preparation for the Super Go Road Rally. Your child will build ramps, tunnels and high-speed STEM skills that put him on the fast track to success.Watch the first glimpse into a small part of the fun your child will have this summer.

I Can Invent: Pinbug

Your child will take apart electronics to build an epic, insect-themed pinball machine in our I Can Invent: Pinbug module. He’ll use tools to uncover mechanical guts and upcycle them into bumpers, targets and scoreboards. Then he’ll angle his way into pinball physics, anatomy and math by propelling the ball onto the playfield with the ultimate DIY cardboard launcher and insect leg flippers to rack up points and win the Pinbug Jackpot. Check out I Can Invent: Pinbug in action!

Design Studio: Morphed!

Design Studio: Morphed! is a participant-led module that allows your child to invent and tinker with circuits and design solutions to nature-based challenges. As an entrepreneur, team leader and designer, she’ll work alongside other campers to bring her invention to market in an environment modeled after real-world research and development spaces. Your child’s imagination will be set free as she receives video messages sent by inventors from the National Inventors Hall of Fame and the Collegiate Inventors Competition.
