Hi! My name is Akeylah Hernandez and I like to learn, imagine, and create. I am so excited to be returning to EDMO this summer so that I can make new friends and master new skills. Lets make this summer the best one yet!

I believe...

in glorious diversity.

Rico is excited for his first year as a Camp EDMO Technology Instructor. When he’s not working on mobile games, he performs musical improv in the Mission. He can’t wait for a fun summer of coding!

I Believe...

in Boundless Curiosity

Rafa is super excited about being part of Camp EDMO for the first time, and cannot wait to get to know everyone there and spend his summer sharing his passion for science. Something fun about Rafa is his irrational love for cats and sloths!

I believe in...

glorious diversity

Lucy is excited and ready to lead our SF-Mission site this summer. She graduated from the University of San Francisco with a degree in Sociology and concentration in Education and is working on earning her Masters in Education and teaching credentials. Lucy e has dreamed about teaching and working with youth since she was 14 years old and is incredibly passionate about the field of education. Originally from South Central Los Angeles, she considers San Francisco her home and has fallen in love with the Mission District. Lucy is thrilled to be working in her favorite district and rock the EDMO vibe with the Mission’s beautiful youth.

Melissa is excited to come back to Camp EDMO™ for the second summer in a row! Last summer she worked as a counselor in the Mission in SF and is happy to be coming back this year as their SEL coach. Melissa loves being outdoors when the sun is at its brightest! She is looking forward to meeting the new staff as well as meeting the new EDMO™ campers!

I Believe in...

Profound Inner Growth

Jose is returning back to Camp EDMO™ as a counselor after a year off! He is so excited to be back in the EDMO™ community. He loves to play on the yard and learn new things. He’s looking forward to meeting new friends at camp.

I Believe...

in Keeping Imagination Alive

After an awesome debut year as a full-fledged counselor last year, Benji is once again ready to step into what is sure to be another incredible summer with Camp EDMO! With over five years of experience working with EDMO, including four years as a Leader-in-Training, Benji continues to work tirelessly to try and facilitate a fun and energetic environment for campers to enjoy! When not rocking the EDMO vibe during a camp day, Benji’s hobbies range from cooking to basketball. Benji’s love for basketball is always strong, and he’ll be happy to talk about the latest NBA news with anybody willing to listen!

I Believe...

in Summer Days Filled with Laughter.

Kelly is a new technology instructor for Camp EDMO and is looking forward to the summer ahead. One fun fact about Kelly is that her favorite drink is a matcha milk tea!

I believe...

in glorious diversity.

Ruth is so pumped to be back at Camp EDMO for a second year! Last summer, she also worked as a counselor for SF Mission and enjoyed every day of it. She loves making witty jokes, and cannot wait to come up with more of them and share lots of laughter with all the campers!

I Believe...

in Expanding Hearts & Minds.

Hatuey is a native San Franciscan who wants to work at camp EDMO to give back to the community. Working at both the Mission and Marina sites, he’s excited to make new friends this summer.

I Believe...

If you have any questions about coding, playing the ukulele, photography, or if you just want to chat, don’t be afraid to say hi! Also feel free to ask her to teach you some card magic tricks!

I Believe in...

the Courage to be Yourself

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. LITs are given a chance to be of service, cultivate strengths and build the foundation for leadership positions in the future.
