The nationally acclaimed Camp Invention program came to DeForest this summer. Created for children entering grades one through six, the exciting Camp Invention program is a week-long adventure in creativity that immerses its participants in engaging, hands-on activities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), as well as history and the arts. The DeForest program was held June 26-30 at DeForest Area Middle School, and was directed by Briana Gustafson, a teacher at DeForest Area High School.
Since Camp Invention’s inception in 1990, the program has grown to include over 1,100 school partnerships in 49 states. In 2016, more than 130,000 children participated nationwide.
Every program participant received a Camp Invention T-shirt featuring clever, new artwork. To learn more about Invent Now programming, visit www.campinvention.org or call 800.968.4332.
