Camp Invention 2024 Illuminate 

Camp Invention Illuminate 

Camp Invention is a confidence-boosting STEM program where kids build creative inventions.  We are offering this program as a three-period daily schedule for students grades 1st to 7th. The program, taught by Wyckoff teachers, is a creative, open-ended learning opportunity. This is a hands-on experience that aligns with national standards. 

There are two sets of course offerings available. Both options are available for any of the full weeks. Students can take one or both throughout the program! When you select Camp Invention there is no need to select individual classes. You will just select which set of classes you choose Illuminate A or B.  Both sets include two invention classes where students will work in groups and individually using a provided field journal.  All items created in these classes get sent home with the students. The third class includes tons of fun with a team-building games program with over 100 different activities to get our students moving and having fun throughout the day.   

More details information and videos about the classes are available here: https://www.invent.org/programs/camp-invention

  • Illuminate A

    • Be an Innovative All-Star With In the Game™

      • As children create their light-up game board, they team up to tackle athletics, design, business, and invention! Campers examine the features and specialized materials of a variety of sports balls, then create their own to use with their personalized game. They build a brand, create a logo, and are recognized for their creativity by being inducted into the Game of Fame!

    • Shine Bright With Let’s Glow™

      • Creativity radiates as campers uncover the science of light through illuminating inventions and glowing animals. They build persistence as they make a one-of-a-kind Glow Box, experimenting with different forms of light and customizing their designs. Through the power of illumination, their ideas shine!

    • Invention Games

    • Engage in teamwork, out-of-the-box thinking, and physical fun through energetic and enriching activities inside and out.

      • Different activities in each session based on the grade and teacher

  • Illuminate B

    • Build Big Ideas With Prototyping Studio™

      • Children star, as contestants, on a game show where they mold, shape, and transform their ideas into amazing inventions! Using a DIY toolbox and everyday materials, as well as inspiration from Our Nation’s Greatest Innovators™, they complete a series of exciting prototyping challenges. While tapping into their imagination, they discover that invention can happen in any place at any time!

    • Explore the Earth and Water With Operation: HydroDrop™

      • Campers embark on an epic global operation to help solve water challenges around the world! They learn about water's role for people and the planet, then customize a robotic lab-on-wheels to assist in their exploration. They use problem-solving to design engineer inventions that will help create a crystal-clear future!
