Camp Invention

Unlock your child’s potential

Now more than ever, kids need fun, open-ended experiences that can help them build their problem-solving power and make their own creative mark on the world. That’s exactly what Camp Invention® delivers.

Teaming up with certified local educators across the country, the National Inventors Hall of Fame® has provided safe and exciting summer camps for 30 years and counting! Each year, we develop and test a new hands-on camp program to get campers thinking, moving, exploring and creating. That’s why so many parents trust us to help kids build the mindset they need to thrive, now and in the future.

Camp Invention reaches more than 130,000 children a year, and this summer, we’re offering both in-person and at-home camp experiences. Whatever you choose, we can’t wait to get our camp on with you!

Make the most of this summer
Camp Your Way

Choose the experience that works for you. Whether your camper attends a local program in person or joins us from home, they are sure to have an inspiring, action-packed time.

Build Confidence

We believe every child can invent — and we make sure our campers believe it, too. Kids gain confidence and persistence as they bring their biggest ideas to life.

Promote Problem Solving

Our world needs more creative problem solvers. So our research-backed program is designed to help kids find their own solutions for any challenge.

Encourage Collaboration

What’s more fun than inventing? Inventing with friends! Kids collaborate in both our in-person and at-home camps, learning that everyone has something important to contribute.
