As your camp week approaches, look for your kits to arrive in a large package. Unpack them and check all the materials! Make sure everything stays organized and easy to find during the program. You will also receive an email from your child`s coach with registration information and a calendar for the week. The camp will start each morning with an online lesson, so your child should have his equipment ready to go. After this session, it`s time to unplug and get creative! In the afternoon, your child can participate in virtual collaboration meetings to ask questions, brainstorm with friends and share their progress. If you prefer a screen-free summer, remember that all online sessions are optional and all activities can be completed offline using step-by-step activity manuals. You will find these guides at the bottom of the main shipping box. You`ll also find digital versions on the Camp Invention Connect Welcome Hub.

Camp Invention is proud to make all this and more available through its challenges as an inventor and video; Inductionee camping tours; and fun hands-on activities that allow students to accept the art of innovation.
