Camp Invention®, a nationally recognized, nonprofit summer enrichment camp program, is coming to Sycamore High School the week of June 10-14.


A program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame® in partnership with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Camp Invention challenges children in grades K-6 to tap into their natural curiosity and use their creativity to solve problems. Through hands-on activities, Camp Invention promotes STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) learning; builds confidence, leadership, perseverance and resourcefulness; and encourages entrepreneurship — all in a fun and engaging environment.

Each year, the program features a new curriculum inspired by some of our nation’s most world-changing inventors — the National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductees. This year’s Illuminate program encourages children to be confident in their ideas and explore their innovativeness though hands-on experiences including:  


  • Let’s Glow™: Creativity radiates as campers uncover the science of light through illuminating inventions and glowing animals

  • Prototyping Studio™: Children star as contestants on a game show where they mold, shape and transform their ideas into amazing inventions

  • In the Game™: As campers create their own light-up game board, they team up to tackle athletics, design, business and invention

  • Operation: HydroDrop™: Children embark on a global operation to help solve water challenges around the world


All local Camp Invention programs are facilitated and taught by qualified educators who reside and teach in the community. Camp Invention serves 118,000 students every year and partners with more than 2,200 schools and districts across the nation.
