The nationally acclaimed “Camp Invention” summer program returns to Hudson from July 8-12, 2019! Camp Invention banner

This exciting, week-long STEM summer camp program offers children the opportunity to explore robots, design inventions, take apart machines, make new friends while solving challenges and more!

It is open to students entering Grades 1-6 who are interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).

About Camp Invention

Camp Invention allows children to experience real-world problem solving, creative thinking, invention, and teamwork while rotating through several fascinating modules inspired by the Inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame. Children will engage in activities that explore connections between science, technology, engineering, and innovation while sharpening their 21st century learning skills.

All activities give participants the opportunity to explore, discover, and achieve while having fun! In 2019, campers will engage in innovative activities such as:

  • Build ships and design underwater equipment in "Deep Sea Mystery"
  • Design a remote-controlled robot
  • Engineer, build and innovate with inventor superheroes to conquer villains in "Innovation Force"
  • Code bots to turn a polluted wasteland into a money-making machine and create devices to save animals in "Farm Tech"

Educators from M.C. Smith Elementary School will lead the week of fun, hands-on, STEM activities that encourage children to think big, explore their curiosity, and never give up! High school students may serve as Leadership Interns.
