Camp Invention - Geo-Quest at Ashland Community and Tehcnical College is a week long day camp exploring the Earth in the sky, underwater, on land and underground. The camp for students entering first to sixth grades will be held June 17 to 21 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Roberts Drive Campus.

Camp Invention is offered by ACTC Community Education in partnership with Invent Now Kids, a subsidiary of the National Inventor’s Hall of Fame Foundation. Since its inception in 1990, Camp Invention has grown to include more than 1200 sites in 49 states. 

Students will decipher nature’s pattern in ‘Ecoverse,’ navigate their way to treasure-filled caches in Cache Dash, learn about the natural world in Amazing Atlas Games, and use physics to create the ultimate Duck Chucking Device. The hands-on activities in science, technology, engineering and math are designed to foster creativity, cooperation, critical thinking skills and innovation.

Enrollment is limited on a first-come basis, and there is a discount for registration before May 30. Register online at campinvention.org or call 1-800-968-4332.
