Camp Invention returns for sixth year Aug. 10-14

Director Amy Farkas and the Riverview Community School District is excited and proud to host Camp Invention for the sixth year in a row.

Camp Invention is the only nationally recognized summer program focused on creativity, innovation, real-world problem solving and the spirit of invention. 

Through hands-on programming, Camp Invention encourages children entering kindergarten through sixth grade to explore science, technology, engineering and mathematics curriculum inspired by some of the world’s greatest inventors. 

Camp Invention is a program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame. This nationwide, nonprofit organization is committed to the curious minds and innovative spirits of the past, present and future. 

Since 1990, our education programs have served more than 1.5 million children, and 170,000 teachers and leadership Interns.

This year, because of our exceptional campers and dedication to Camp Invention, Seitz has been chosen to pilot next year’s Camp Invention curriculum.  

This curriculum, called Vanguard, will challenge students to:
Create

Stretch your imagination as you design and build a launching device and dream up a morphing vehicle.
Problem Solve

Create a robotic, solar-powered cricket and use hands-on, creative problem solving to outsmart its predators.
Build Confidence

Find your voice as a persistent entrepreneur by reverse engineering technology and marketing your inventions.  

Riverview’s Camp Invention was granted over $16,000 in scholarship funding to make it possible for camp to cost just $25 per camper. This price is exceptional because the program is already a bargain at the regular price of $225. 

Farkas and the district are honored to be hosting Camp Invention Vanguard for live, in person, instruction the week of Aug. 10-14.  We are equally grateful for the opportunity to expose 90 campers, nine Leaders In Training, 12 Mentors and Instructors to the amazing STEM experience and programming that Camp Invention provides.
