Camp Invention comes to Moorestown

Camp Invention, a nationally recognized, nonprofit summer enrichment camp program, is coming to Moorestown’s Upper Elementary School on the week of July 22.

Camp Invention, a program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame (NIHF) in partnership with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, provides a unique experience for children to learn about the importance of intellectual property while exploring, creating and designing. Using hands-on activities, Camp Invention promotes science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning; builds confidence, leadership, perseverance, resourcefulness and problem-solving skills and encourages entrepreneurship — in a fun and engaging environment.

Each year, the program features a new curriculum inspired by some of our nation’s greatest inventors — the NIHF Inductees. For 2019, the “Supercharged” curriculum features video challenges from these inductees encouraging children to be confident in their ideas and explore their ability to innovate.

All local Camp Invention programs are facilitated and taught by certified educators who reside and teach in the community. Camp Invention serves more than 130,000 students every year and partners with 1,800 schools and districts across the United States.
