We call this an “immersion” day camp as it is based in the Edison Caretaker’s House and includes directed activities in the gardens of the Edison and Ford Estates, the Edison Ford Museum and the Edison Botanic Laboratory.

Student inventors work in science, history and the arts and get to know the Edison & Ford Winter Estates in a very personal way. We are building the next generation of inventors and leaders. Early registration is suggested and competitive scholarships are available.
