Register for Creative Contraptions Camp

This camp will take junior inventors on a journey of discovery from the real-life inventions of da Vinci, Edison, and the Wright brothers, to Isaac Asimov's dreams of future inventions. Each day campers will 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... their mind! With a little bit of ingenuity, they'll construct catapults and forts and then lay siege, fabricate innovative flying contraptions, design their own gizmo prototypes, and will even assemble a working light saber to take home! And what better setting for this camp than Oaks Park, the place filled with every kid's favorite contraptions... amusement park rides!
