    Camp Invention, a summer day camp full of “real world” challenges with a fun twist, is returning this summer to Southern Wesleyan University.

    In partnership with Invent Now Kids, Southern Wesleyan University is offering the nationally-acclaimed, week-long camp for children entering grades one through six, beginning June 16 and running through June 20 on the university’s campus in Central.

    Camp Invention offers hands-on activities where children will learn about subjects ranging from ecology to technology. This summer’s all-new program, “Morphed!,” combines the creation of an insect-themed pinball machine with challenges from renowned National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductees and so much more.
