As leaders in STEM education, we understand the challenges of managing school closures like those occurring in response to COVID-19. As director of Camp Invention at Council Rock for the past several years, I decided to combine efforts with STEM Stars and Camp Invention Connect. I will continue to direct the camp and our CR teachers will instruct the online curriculum.
We prepare young people for citizenship and the global society. Campers critically think and problem solve, regardless of their starting point. Team mates learn to articulate with clarity, articulation, coherent instructions and motivation. By the end of camp, your child will produce collaborative projects with creative and competitive spirits.

We teach kids HOW to think, lead, and achieve. Attending camp is a step towards a successful future. We know that to inspire students, we have to fuel their imagination.
We motivate children to lead the STEM revolution. We believe in the drive we know as scientific curiosity, that fire and that inspiration. As science teachers, it is our job to ignite it by sharing our excitement for discovery and investigation.
We know that learning is easier when you have a dynamic teacher. Our summer camp faculty are Council Rock high school and elementary STEM teachers. Our class size is private with a 12:1 student to teacher ratio and a 4:1 student to science leader ratio.
Sign up for your child's learning to be based on real world concepts and popular interests, guided inquiry, and experiential teamwork. We base our lessons on STEM fundamentals and NGSS and PA Science and Math Standards.
The Partnership for 21st Century Skills is a national organization that advocates for 21st century readiness. Its' “Framework for 21st Century Skills,” outlines 4Cs of STEM - critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity. Register and experience the 4Cs, the foundation of our summer camp.
