CAMP INVENTION, Hosted by The Knox School

Join us this summer, August 2nd - 6th for Camp Invention's award winning summer camp program hosted by The Knox School!

In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame, The Knox School of Santa Barbara is pleased to offer the nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering K through 6th grade. This exciting, weeklong summer adventure provides opportunities for open-ended exploration of science, technology, engineering and more! Children rotate through a variety of hands-on activities each day while collaborating with friends to think creatively and invent their own solutions to real-world challenges.


The Knox School faculty serve as camp staff, along with a dedicated and caring team of Knox Alumni CITs. We pride ourselves on taking excellent care of our campers and helping them reach their potential. In addition to all the activities and adventures of the day, our camp includes daily healthy snacks, as well as integrated physical education and play time. Campers come home happy, tired, and eager for the next day of camp!

Camp Invention hosted by The Knox School run in accordance with CDC and SB County COVID safety protocols. The Knox School has been holding in-person instruction for the entire 2020-21 school year.

During this energizing program, young innovators (aka campers) will:

  • Design morphing vehicles to travel across land, then find inspiration in nature to add prototype elements for moving through air and water.

  • Experiment with fun physics concepts like trajectory and velocity as they build, test and modify a device to launch rubber ducks to reach international landmarks.

  • Make and adopt their own robotic crickets and apply empathy to build customized habitats and protective gear for their solar-powered bots.

  • Reverse engineer their own wireless microphone to discover sound waves, then use their unique voice to create and promote an extraordinary invention.

  • The Knox School facilitates the program and gives participants the opportunity to explore, create and build confidence as they bring their biggest ideas to life.
