Camp Invention® is coming back to Capistrano USD with an all-new program, Explore!

In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF), Saddleback College and Capistrano Unified School District is pleased to once again offer the nationally acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering kindergarten through sixth grade. This popular program has earned rave reviews from parents, teachers and — most importantly — campers! Children who join this exciting, weeklong summer adventure will engage in open-ended, hands-on exploration of science, technology, engineering and more! Rotating through a variety of exciting activities each day, children have fun collaborating with friends, thinking creatively and inventing their own solutions to real-world challenges.

The program is being offered at various schools throughout the district over different weeks. Visit to find the camp closest to you and see which week each program is running! The all-new 2022 program will thrill both new and returning campers with an expedition full of far-reaching explorations, fascinating discoveries and exhilarating “a-ha” moments!

During this dynamic, high-energy program, young innovators will:

  • Dive into cutting-edge ocean research as they adopt their own robotic fish, design and patent aquatic plants, and take their fish friend home in a mini tank.
  • Discover real space exploration technology when they create Spacepacks and Astro-Arm devices, mine an asteroid and observe erupting ice volcanoes.
  • Combine science and art to build their own robotic artist, engage in design thinking, make spin art and learn how inventions can change the way people create.
  • Experiment with the fun of physics, engineering and gaming as they design, build and test their own mega marble arcades.
