Since 1990, Camp Invention has taken summer fun and transformed it from ordinary to extraordinary!


In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame,Thomas Crossroads Elementary is pleased to offer the nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering grades K-6. It’s an exciting, weeklong summer adventure with lessons that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Children will work together to seek solutions to real-world problems and sharpen critical 21stcentury learning skills while rotating through several fascinating modules. The week begins on

June 5-June 8 with Pamela Hendrix serving as Director of the Launch program!


Here is how young innovators will be spending their time:

  •         Engaging creative thinking to design and build their own duct tape creations
  •         Experiencing the power of rocket science by building and launching rubber band rockets
  •         Exploring aerodynamics to blast water rockets made from plastic bottles more than 50 feet in the air
  •         Taking apart nonworking machines and devices to investigate their inner operations


All activities give participants the opportunity to explore, discover and achieve while having fun!


Local educators will facilitate program modules and enthusiastic high school students will serve as Leadership Interns ensuring that one program team member is in place for every eight children.
