LONDONDERRY — Invent Now Inc. will bring its Camp Invention program back to Londonderry this summer.
Camp Invention is a week-long summer day program for students entering grades one through six. The program engages children to discover their own innate creativity and inventiveness through hands-on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
"Camp Invention's reputation as a leader in high-quality summer programming has helped us to grow from a museum program impacting 300 children in 1990 to a national program impacting over 76,000 children," said Michael J. Oister, Chief Operating Officer for Invent Now. "We have families who tell us Camp Invention changed their child's outlook on learning, and stories like those keep us inspired."
Each day, children rotate through four integrated modules that employ creative thinking to solve real-world challenges. Children learn vital 21st-century life skills, such as problem-solving and teamwork through imaginative play.
In this summer's Envision program, children will experience different modules including Inventeureka, Action and Adventure Games, Magnetropolis and I Can Invent: Balloon Burst. Children will spend their week visiting a faux island to study magnetism, taking a fantasy adventure on the Ci6000 Space Modulator Time Machine, inventing a balloon-bursting machine and much more. .
Also launching this summer is the Counselor-in-Training program, ideal for Camp Invention "graduates" who are now too old for the program. These individuals will assist leadership interns with tasks and help to mentor participants. Counselors-in-Training will leave with volunteer experience and a step ahead of others when entering high school.
To register a child for these programs, visit CampInvention.org or call 800-968-4332.
