Southern Door hosting Camp Invention

A nationally recognized summer camp is coming to Southern Door for the sixth year in a row. It’s called Camp Invention and it promotes science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) learning. Children in grades K-6 will learn from inventors and how to work in teams. Participants will reverse-engineer a robot which means they’ll take a robot apart and put it back together again. Jessica Meacham, the elementary STEAM teacher at Southern Door, helped organize the camp. She says it’s important for children to learn about STEAM in a creative way because it will help them so much in the future.

 

 

Meacham says most attendees come from Door County but children from anywhere can attend. Last year around 90 students came to Camp Invention which was the largest number they’ve had there. The camp lasts for one week from June 10th through June 14th. It costs $230 to attend and there are scholarship opportunities for families who qualify. Contact Meacham at jmeacham@southerndoor.k12.wi.us for scholarship questions.
