LMDC is thrilled to bring back Camp Invention!

Are you ready for rockets, spy gadgets, space labs and duct tape like you have never seen in Camp Invention? We sure hope so, because all of this and more is included in this year’s new program, Launch!


  • Participants apply principles of engineering to create a castle from cardboard and design a pulley system to raise a castle flag.
  • Teams employ the concepts of physics and motion to engineer aerodynamic water rockets out of plastic water bottles that can soar more than 50 feet.


  • As DIY duct tape experts, children design products that they can market and sell.
  • Participants build inventory, get ready to take some risks and create a start-up business that will put their products in high demand. Once their business is launched, they pitch their product to mock investors.


  • Campers terraform a distant new exoplanet—designing inventions to transform its atmosphere, terrain, and ecosystem to create the next Earth.
  • Participants explore National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductees and NASA engineers who have designed and built telescopes, rockets, and observed planets outside of our solar system.


  • Participants take apart machines and devices and use their parts and pieces to create the ultimate Spy Gadget Alarm Box to help millions of children keep their treasures secure.
  • During the week, they figure out how to read a note written in invisible ink to find a missing tool, use spy glasses to catch a toy thief, and discover that both spies and engineers write in secret codes, all while writing and sketching in their Inventor Logs!
