Camp Invention Returns to SUNY Canton

Children can explore the connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation at this year’s Camp Invention.

The day camp will run from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. with weeklong sessions beginning July 20 and July 27 in the college’s Richard W. Miller Campus Center.


During week one, children will build and modify their own freestyle-racing cart. Additionally, students will learn about prototypes and how to create a live representation of a video game using found objects. During week two, students will construct their own motorized creatures and explore alternative energy. Hands-on activities will help students study the connection between mathematics, patterns and relationships.

Camp Invention is intended for students entering grades 1-6. It offers innovative sessions that are taught by certified teachers. All sessions use teamwork and subject immersion to enhance each student’s appreciation for discovery.

The program is $220 each week per student. Families enrolling two children receive $25 off per child. Families registering three or more children will save $50 per child. Special rates are available for children of SUNY Canton employees.

Parents can register their children online at, or by calling 1-800-968-4322. For more information contact April Barnes at
