Camp EDMO™ understands the role after school programs play in supporting academic achievement. Camp EDMO™ staff partner with teachers from the school day to become familiar with the lessons and homework assignments. We have a designated slot during the after school program that is dedicated to the completion of homework and other academic reinforcement activities. For those students, who do not receive homework, the homework help time slot will encompass phonics, academic activities, and math reinforcement. In addition, we will utilize age/grade appropriate computer programs to further develop math skill formation.
