 Camp Invention


IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO SIGN UP! Camp Invention is coming to Oakview this summer! What is Camp Invention? Camp Invention is where BIG ideas become the next BIG thing!  Local educators lead a week of hands-on activities created especially for elementary school children. Boys and girls spend time pushing the limits during high-energy games, working with teammates to construct a freestyle racing cart and taking apart electronics to assemble something one-of-a-kind. Lessons explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Don’t miss out on brand new challenges.  For information, call 800.968.4332 or visit

Camp Invention will be held at Oakview August 10 - 14 from 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.The cost is $220. Sign up forms are available by clicking this link .

We have also been awarded a large amount of scholarship money to help offset the cost for families. You can find that application form here . Money is still available!

We are so excited about this program!
