The KCUYA will be hosting an in-person Camp Invention, a one week long nationally acclaimed summer program, from the The National Inventors Hall of Fame. 

Special thanks to Populous for sponsoring the KCUYA as a host site this summer and providing Camp Invention free of cost to our participants!


About: Camp Invention is a one week summer program where children's creativity, innovation, and problem-solving skills are challenged and developed in fun and exciting ways. Our top priority is to inspire future innovators and build their confidence in the natural ability to dream and create. Children are presented with fun, hands-on challenges that encourage creative problem solving, teamwork, entrepreneurship, and innovation. Camp invention is led by your experienced local educators and new curriculum is introduced each year, inspired by the Inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame! 

*There is no baseball/softball for this camp- This camp will follow specific curriculum designed by the National Inventors Hall of Fame. To see the program in action or looking for more details visit:

DatesMonday, August 10 - Friday, August 14 

  • This camp is in-person camp
  • This camp is only 1 week long and you must be able to commit to every day as the curriculum builds each day. This also helps ensure we are good stewards of the sponsorship funds.

Time: 9am - 3:30pm each day

Grades: 4th, 5th, and 6th grades only. The max capacity of this camp is 42 students. Open to both boys and girls. 

Lunch: We have applied to Harvesters for their summer meal program. (We hope to be able to provide lunch each day and will confirm our ability to do so as the dates get closer, but in the event we don't have Harvesters please be prepared to send your child with a lunch)

Cost: FREE!

Location: KC MLB Urban Youth Academy-1622 E 17th Terr. Kansas City, MO. 

Drop Off & Pick Up:

- Drop off and pick up will be at the front gate entrance of the academy where a staff member will greet you

- Temperature checks: Each participant will have their temperature checked at drop off. If temperature reads above 100*F that participant will be unable to enter the academy for the day.
