Creative Contraption Warning! This camp is designed by you—the Inventor! Each day you’ll be given a series of challenges which must be overcome using basic materials, simple machines, tips from world famous inventors and the most important thing of all – your imagination! With a little ingenuity, you’ll construct catapults and forts, then lay siege to a castle. Assemble your own working light stick and prepare to rule the galaxy! While Thomas Edison said, invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration; this camp is 100% fun!
