Registration Open: Camp Invention Goes Virtual, June 22 - 26
Registration Open: Camp Invention Goes Virtual, June 22 - 26
Grayson County Schools
Thursday, May 21, 2020

In response to the many challenges and disruptions we are all experiencing due to COVID-19, our team has been hard at work developing an alternative solution to ensure our campers don’t miss out on the fun, hands-on experience we’ve all grown to love at Camp Invention. We want children to be excited about this summer — so we’d like to introduce our ALL NEW  Camp Invention® Connect program! The BEST part about this program is due to a generous donation from Jochum Moll, this program is only $15 to you! This scholarship is only available to Grayson County residents. Camp Invention is open for students entering grades K - 6 in the upcoming school year.

How it works:

Camp Invention® Connect  includes a complete set of four activity kits, packed full of materials to bring dynamic, flexible STEM activities to life! Take a look:  https://www.invent.org/camp-invention-connect . Though the current circumstances prevent us from physically attending camp, your child is going to LOVE discovering this package on your doorstep and unboxing each exclusive kit.      

Camp Invention® Connect provides an opportunity to collaborate with local educators and students online, but is not required. The magic in exploration will happen with the activities and supplies that your child receives. Participants will even get their very own take apart robot, with tools included! We’ve incorporated high-energy activities and opportunities to go outdoors, so Camp Invention Connect will keep your child engaged and moving! Plus, our program is designed for flexibility. Your child can join the daily kickoff sessions with fellow campers and a local educator — all while keeping screen time minimal or they can choose to be screen-free and child-led. These sessions include fun icebreakers and problem-solving excursions, keeping even our most shy campers excited as they make new friends!   

Daily kickoff sessions for this program will be held:
