BPES to host Camp Invention Aug. 8-12

For the second straight summer, Broadalbin-Perth Elementary School will host Camp Invention, a nationally acclaimed STEM enrichment program, for district students entering kindergarten through grade 6. The program will be offered Monday through Friday, Aug. 8-12, at BPES.

Camp Invention provides opportunities for open-ended exploration of science, technology, engineering, and more. Each day of the program, participating children will rotate through a variety of hands-on activities while collaborating with friends to think creatively and invent their own solutions to real-world challenges.

Program hours will be 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day of camp. The district will provide transportation for participating students who request it. All campers must bring their own lunch; school meals will not be provided.

Parents can register their children who are currently in pre-K through grade 5 through MySchoolBucks. The deadline to register is May 1. The non-refundable registration fee is $30. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. If there is more interest than capacity for this program, the district will establish a waitlist. Registration status will be confirmed by May 15. Students who do not get into the program off a waitlist will be issued a full refund.
