Welcome to Camp Innoventure

Camp Innoventure offers middle school students a weeklong experience in innovative thinking and entrepreneurial development. Camp offers students a chance to learn creative critical thinking skills that are applicable inside and outside of the classroom. Students are encouraged in areas of creative problem-solving and collective brainstorming. Students also practice asking questions and learning the basic tenets of entrepreneurism. Camp leaders include local educators, entrepreneurs and businesspeople.
Campers spend the first half of the morning learning curriculum and the second half creating a marketable product. Past student-campers have even created jingles, packaging and logos for their projects. At the end of the week, students partner with the Downtown Growers’ Market for public, hands-on customer discovery, interaction and practice marketing within a community-specific demographic.
