Camp Invention

Children will explore Mars and renovate an art museum’s sculpture garden at Sylvan Way Christian School this summer.

Camp Invention returns to the school in Bremerton July 7-11. During a module called M.A.R.S. (Moving at Rocket Speed) Camp Invention participants will plan and execute a trip to Mars, becoming the first astronauts to explore the planet. In Art Park, participants will attempt to save a museum from the threat of losing donations by designing a new sculpture garden to please the public and the museum’s largest donor. During Saving Sludge City, the Camp Invention team will rebuild and clean a polluted city, making it a more eco-friendly environment for its residents.

The Camp Invention program, open to children entering first through sixth grades, fosters creativity, teamwork, inventive-thinking skills and science literacy. The program was created in 1990 by the National Inventors Hall of Fame Foundation. It receives support from the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

The $225 registration fee includes daily snacks and a T-shirt. A discount of $20 per child is offered with the bring-a-friend program. There also is an additional $5 discount for online registrants.
