Breckinridge County School District Host Camp Invention

 

The Breckinridge County School District hosted Camp Invention earlier this summer. The National Inventors Hall of Fame created Camp Invention, the only nationally recognized summer program focused on creativity, innovation, real-world problem-solving, and the spirit of invention. The top priority of Camp Invention is to provide quality programming in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The program presents essential STEM concepts through creative hands-on activities.

Camp Invention was held at Breckinridge County High School and was open to all first through sixth grade students in the Breckinridge County School District. The five day camp took place from 8:00 until 2:30 each day. In addition, a hot breakfast and lunch were provided to each participant through the Breckinridge County Summer Feed Program. Eighty students from each of the school district’s four elementary schools participated in this wonderful opportunity. Also, nineteen Breckinridge County High School students and seven students from Breckinridge County Middle School took advantage of this opportunity to enhance leadership skills. These students contributed a combined total of over one thousand community service hours through Camp Invention and the planning/preparation for the camp. These students not only enhanced leadership skills, but also served as excellent role models for the elementary students.

The camp was directed by Terri Haycraft, Gifted and Talented Coordinator for the Breckinridge County School District. Christa Winarski, Gifted and Talented Coordinator in the school district, served as Assistant Director. Four teachers, one from each of the elementary schools, were instructors for the camp: Brittany Fowler represented Ben Johnson Elementary, Aundrea Thompson represented Hardinsburg Elementary, Carrie Slocum represented Irvington Elementary, and Bethany Wilfong represented Custer Elementary. This was the fourth year Camp Invention was hosted in the Breckinridge County School District. All who participated and helped in the camp in anyway are to be commended. The Breckinridge County School District is excited and looking forward to Camp Invention 2018.
