Camp Invention coming to Coshocton

| April 28, 2017

COSHOCTON – Camp Invention, a nationally recognized, nonprofit summer enrichment camp program, is coming to Coshocton Elementary School June 12-16. Regional program sponsors include The Ohio Lottery, Honda of America Mfg., Inc., GPD Group Employees’ Foundation, Inc., and Simpson Family Donor Advised Fund of the Coshocton Foundation.

For students entering kindergarten through sixth grade, Camp Invention is a weeklong adventure that turns the summer from ordinary to extraordinary through hands-on problem solving, collaboration, and the use of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Inventive young minds can exercise their creativity and use their imagination, all while learning and developing new skills they typically don’t get to use in the classroom. Children are empowered to have big ideas while they take on challenges that inspire them to question, brainstorm, work as a team and build amazing invention prototypes.

This year’s fresh, action-packed Camp Invention curriculum features several hands-on modules:

– Duct Tape Billionaire(tm): Campers design duct tape products they can market and sell to mock investors;

– Have a Blast(tm): Children build high-tech Bubble Blasters and compete as a team in friendly air battles that use physics to boost their advantage;

– Mission Space Makers(tm): Teams hatch eggs, sprout living plants and grow crystal trees, all while on a mission to locate and prepare a new planet for human habitation; and

– Operation Keep Out(tm):  Campers learn to reverse engineer old machines and devices, and use their parts to create the ultimate Spy Gadget Alarm Box.

All local Camp Invention programs are facilitated and taught by certified educators who reside and teach in the community. For additional information, visit
