  • camp

    Since 1990, Camp Invention has taken summer fun and transformed it from ordinary to extraordinary! Local educators lead a week of hands-on activities created especially for elementary school children. Boys and girls spend time building original prototypes using real tools and components found in everyday devices, playing high-energy games and so much more! All lessons explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Early registration discounts are available. Visit to register your child for the camp at NWRE on June 6-10.
