Fortville Elementary School (FES) hosted the first Mt. Vernon Camp Invention this summer. Many camp counselors inspired students (kindergarten through sixth grade) to create, engage and invent their desires.
During this high-energy week, students are involved in fun, hands-on challenges that encourage creative problem solving, teamwork, entrepreneurship and innovation. New curriculum is introduced each year, inspired by the Inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame!
The Mt. Vernon Optimist Club, the FES PTO and Outlook Christian Church donated funds to offer scholarships for students to attend this exciting week of activities. Mt. Vernon would like to thank these organizations for their support of this wonderful student enrichment opportunity.
Plan on attending next year's Camp Invention in June 2018! See www.campinvention.org for further details.
