Bristol school to host ‘Camp Invention” June 2-6

Parents know their kids can be inventive.
Sometimes, too inventive – like when they’re inventing new ways to get into trouble.
But this summer in Bristol, kids will have the opportunity to be inventive and leave smiles all around, as Haynesfield Elementary School hosts Camp Invention.
The weeklong day camp is for students entering grades one through six, and is intended to encourage through hands-on problem solving. The Bristol camp will run from June 2 to June 6 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day.
Camp Invention was founded by inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, and programming is developed through partnerships with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and the Collegiate Inventors Competition.
“Camp Invention is proud to inspire and challenge our next generation of innovators through this nationally acclaimed educational program,” said Michael Oister, CEO of Invent Now, the organization responsible for organizing more than 1,200 Camp Invention day camps throughout the U.S. serving 80,000 students every year. “During the past 20 years, we have helped to ignite a passion for creativity and invention in more than 900,000 children while leaving them with great camp memories and lifelong friendships.”
The base cost of the camp is $220.
