Here’s what a few Carroll County parents had to say about Camp Invention:

Both of my girls loved the camp! Since it ended, they’ve been inventing their own STEM activities almost daily and are calling themselves scientists. They are repurposing materials around the house and being more creative with hands-on materials. – Joe R., Sykesville

My son absolutely loved this camp and every activity. When asked which activity was his favorite, he said ‘All of them!’ – Laura/David W., Mt. Airy

Camp was the best thing to happen to my child since the shutdown. He found so much joy in the interactions and the ability to be creative. He’s talking about and using these skills every day. Thank you for the experience. – Loretta K., Sykesville
