Kansas City Kansas Community College hosted Camp Invention this summer and The Local Show was there to get a glimpse at the creative geniuses of the future.
The Camp Invention program instills vital 21st century life skills such as problem-solving and teamwork through hands-on fun. The Camp Invention program is a nationally acclaimed weeklong summer enrichment day experience for children entering in grades one through six that is free to schools and organizations nationwide. The top priority of the Camp Invention program is to provide quality enrichment programming in the fields of science, mathematics, history, and the arts. Local schools host the program and the week’s hands-on activities are led by local teachers to ensure a safe learning environment. The staff to child ratio is 1:8! The Camp Invention program enhances a child’s ability to learn through teamwork and subject immersion while cultivating a new appreciation for discovery — it’s learning disguised as fun!
