EDMO Junior: Pre-K & Entering Kindergarten
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.
EDMO Prime: Entering 1st-2nd Grade
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.
EDMO Max: Entering 3rd-4th Grade
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.
EDMO Pro: Entering 5th-8th Grade
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.
We don’t know what your child will be when they grow up, but we want them to succeed. Our weekly themes fall under three categories: Science, Technology & Nature. Each category develops a different set of skills but all of them include maker projects that fuse collaborative design challenges with art and individual expression.
Our week-long curricula are designed by our in-house education team in partnership with top Bay Area museums, organizations and universities. We scaffold activities so that campers start with introductory project at the beginning of the week and culminate with larger, more complex and collaborative ones at the end of the week. Throughout the week we weave in elements of The EDMO Method® to build life-long skills.
Our Science Program curriculum revolves around design challenges that mimic real-life scenarios and lots of household materials. With our emphasis on developing both a Maker Mindset and Growth Mindset, campers feel safe to make mistakes and learn from them.
Our Technology Programs empower campers to make a difference in the world by building fundamental digital media skills. Campers apply both the Maker Mindset and Connected Mindset™ to create “positive goal” games, apps, and movies.
Our Nature Programs turn the environment into our classroom. Campers practice the Maker Mindset and Mindfulness in beautiful regional parks. We focus on developing an eco-consciousness by seeing the world through the lens of nature’s creatures.
The EDMO Vibe
All sorts of EDMO vibe-arrific things happen at camp that make it a unique and magical place to send your child. Here’s just a few favorites:
Each week of the summer there’s a unique Challenge designed to encourage your child to be curious, courageous and kind in their community. Post your photo completing the challenge on EDMO’s Instagram or Facebook page!
Campers learn to give gratitude to one another, staff and their parents by giving them “Snaps”. Two pats, two claps, two snaps and some good vibes are coming your way!
These lovable plush characters are an SEL tool; each character having a different personality archetypes that help campers build empathy and compassion for themselves and others.
During our SEL time each day, we work in kid-friendly mindfulness practices like short visualization exercises, walking meditation, yoga for kids and journaling.
Dress Up Thursdays
Every Thursday at camp things get a little extra weird. Check out the dress up themes days this summer.
EDMO LIVE! Camps run the week of June 8 – August 14. Our EDMO Live! Drop-in And EDMO Live! Coach programs are year-round. We also hope to be back in person at all of your favorite Bay Area and Sacramento Region locations in Summer 2021! Visit any of our EDMO Live! online program pages for details on pricing and hours.
Honor System Pricing
Honor System Pricing allows us to serve everyone at the same time. All we do is create the space for people to be kind. Humans decide what they can afford and if they want to help others. Humans decide if their child deserves quality education and if all children deserve quality education. Humans decide if they stand for diversity and inclusion. Humans have the power in this system.
