For the third 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. 7-11, 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. Transportation to and from school will be available to families 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 Friday, May 5. The non-refundable registration fee is $50. 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 19. Students who do not get into the program off a waitlist will be issued a full refund.

Note, parents should NOT try to register for the B-P program through the Camp Invention website. Registration must be done through MySchoolBucks. If you do not see “Camp Invention Registration Fee” in MySchoolBucks, you may need to add your child to your account. You can do so by clicking the profile icon in the upper-right corner of the website and selecting “My Students.” You will need your child’s student ID, which you can find on ParentSquare. If you have any questions, please contact Ashley Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org.
