Select Grade (entering Fall 2019)
  • ?

    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.

    Starting in 5th grade (and throughout middle school), when campers are ready to take the plunge, EDMO Pro lets them choose a passion and explore it with deep focus.  Campers participate in more advanced programs with real world tools and more lab time.

    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.
