About the Campus

Our new Redwood Regional Park day camp location is a hidden forest of redwoods that lies off Redwood road, just a few miles over the ridge from downtown Oakland.  The area provides access to nature trails and creeks, where campers may spy regional wildlife such as deer, rabbits and trout. Located at the end of the Redwood Gate entrance to the park, the Owl Picnic Area is easily accessed from Redwood Road and Skyline Blvd., with plenty of parking and a horseshoe lot for easy summer camp drop off and pick up!

Hi my name is Helena Ortiz. I am a current college student pursing my Masters degree in which I will be receiving this summer. I have had a long journey so far in my work with elementary students. I am passionate about helping students succeed in whatever life brings them. I want students to learn responsibility, care, and love for themselves and others. We are all brought together by love and love goes a long way. I would not be where I am if I did not love! I enjoy humor and fun engaging activities. Shopping is my go to and being a parent to my daughter brings me life!

“I am looking forward to an adventurous summer with both campers and parents!” Helena Ortiz, Oakland Park Camp Director

    It starts with kids entering Pre-K and Kindergarten. While they play, create and make friends, they get used to routines and absorb SEL skills. Whether it’s learning to play collaboratively or express emotions, our EDMO Jr campers flex their growing mind, body and spirit. Nappers welcome! (must be age 4 by June 1 and potty trained)

    (Note: Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis. Please call the home office at 415.282.6673 or 877.993.6673)

    Say hello to next generation learning, fueled by old-school values. EDMO Prime kids rock the vibe and participate in activities as original they are.

    During grades 3-4, this is when our EDMO Max campers really start growing into their own identities. We give them a platform to experiment, define what they love to do, express emotions, and form deeper friendships.

    Our EDMO™ Leader-in-Training (LIT) program is for those entering 9th grade and older, looking to build leadership and child development skills in themselves…and rockets, slime and pickle batteries with our campers. LITs are given a chance to be of service, cultivate strengths and build the foundation for leadership positions in the future.
