Camp Invention Brings a Week of Creativity to Frisco

In partnership with Invent Now, Frisco ISD is offering the nationally acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering grades one through six. The weeklong summer adventure in creativity immerses children in imaginative play that reinforces and supplements school-year learning in the subjects of science, technology, engineering and

math (STEM). Children work together to seek innovative solutions to realworld problems and sharpen critical learning skills such as teamwork and creative problem solving as they rotate through four modules each day that disguise learning as fun.

The week of four fun-filled modules begins on June 17 with children forming expedition teams that embark on a quest to explore the Earth in the sky, underwater, on land and underground in the Ecoverse module. Throughout the journey, teams design and invent tools to reveal and retrieve the Earth's hidden messages; deciphering nature's patterns. As children master the elements, they earn glyphs and create an illustrated narrative for a petrosphere journal, their own ancient symbol of power and knowledge.

Children combine physical activity and creativity during fun, energetic games based on the children’s ages and ability. Local educators facilitate program modules and high school and college students serve as leadership interns, ensuring that one staff member is in place for every eight children.

Discounted registration is available online. Every registration includes a free Camp Invention T-shirt. Space is limited to assure staff-to-child ratios.
