All Programs
Roblox: Game Maker
Grades: 2-4

Campers, build your very own characters, worlds and mini-games in Roblox!  Roblox is a popular computer program which allows users to build and play in a 3D game world.  In this game world, campers will learn the fundamentals of game level design and 3D modeling as they explore some basic coding concepts to define the rules and mechanics of their custom mini-game.

21st Century & SEL Skill Focus: Initiative, Emotion Management, Problem Solving, Collaboration, Initiative, Empathy.  Learn more about other skills we build through The EDMO Method™.

Please note that campers work in pairs or teams and share computers. This allows for a more collaborative process, as well as more comprehensive and innovative projects. Plus, it’s more fun!

 

Sample Projects

Parkour Challenge Gauntlet

Parkour Challenge Gauntlet

Campers will design and create their own 3D game levels, such as a “parkour” course where the player will be challenged to run, climb and jump through an obstacle course as fast as possible.

Campers will learn the basics of creating a 3D game level out of primitive objects like boxes, cylinders, pyramids, and spheres.

 Puzzle Mini-Games

Puzzle Mini-Games

Using some simple computer code, campers will create more complicated game challenges, such as hidden keys that will unlock doors, or buttons that the player can click to move platforms around.

Campers will learn the fundamentals of computer programming like; variables, functions, if statements, and loops.

Create Your Own World

Create Your Own World

Once the basic objects and code functions are complete, the sky’s the limit.  Campers will get a chance to customize and expand their game worlds to all kinds of game genres and styles.

Campers will work with their partner to plan and construct a game world of their own design, practicing collaboration, critical thinking, organization, and more.

8:00-9:00AM AM Program

During our EDMO AM Program, campers start the day listening to music, playing games and doing structured art projects. The AM Program allows campers time to engage and wake up for the day.

8:50-9:00AM Drop-Off

Be greeted by name or a high five by a professional staff member…dressed in a mermaid costume or a Viking hat. In a hurry? Pull up and we’ll open the door for you. In no rush? Park your car, come right in and shake your counselor’s fin.

9:00-9:30AM Morning Rally

Although we have a strict “No Nuts” food policy, we have also have a strict “Go Nuts” rally policy. You never know what surprises await when staff and kids take the stage for songs, skits, dress up days, and ridiculous contests.

9:30-10:30AM Game Time

Game Time is all about playing games and having some good ‘ol run-around time. During Game Time, campers will participate in organized recreation activities designed to promote teamwork, collaboration and fun physical activity.

10:30-10:50AM Snack

Active minds lead to hungry bellies! Don’t forget to pack a healthy snack for your camper every morning…with no nuts of course! Remember: If you ordered a delicious lunch, you automatically receive a healthy morning snack!

10:50-11:50AM Enrichment 1

During enrichment stations, campers really get into the weekly theme and curriculum. Campers are introduced to the weekly subject and concepts, learn new skills and facts, and design, create and build daily and weekly projects.

Add a delicious lunch each day. It’s a snap! Just click/check the lunch box on your enrollment form and a quality lunch will be delivered to camp daily. Rather pack your own lunch? Please just do not bring any products that contain: cashews, almonds, brazil nuts, pine nuts, walnuts or heaven forbid, the “‘Mother of All Nut Allergies”—the peanut.

12:30-1:30PM Enrichment 2

During enrichment stations, campers really get into the weekly theme and curriculum. Campers are introduced to the weekly subject and concepts, learn new skills and facts, and design, create and build daily and weekly projects.

Our Afternoon rally ends the day in an upbeat way. This gives staff  a chance to wrap up the day, make announcements for the days to follow and give SNAPS!

3:00-3:15PM Pick-Up

Pull up or walk up, whichever you fancy. Either way we’ll make a point to let you know something special about your child’s day. Look out for our daily email from the Camp Director detailing the activities at your camp location, along with a reminder to visit EDMO At Home to see what to look forward to tomorrow and suggested activities, books, websites, museum exhibitions, and more ways to keep the curiosity going.

3:15-6:00PM PM Extended Day, PM Snack & Free Play

During our EDMO PM Program, campers are given time to have a snack and participate in some free play before the PM enrichment program begins. The PM program curriculum will follow the themes of each week in Tech and Science/Makers. See theme descriptions for specific PM theme. Parents are welcome to pick up any time between 3:15-6PM…but no later please! Our staff needs to get home too.

“The three weeks at Camp EDMO™ have gone by fast. Our kids have really enjoyed spending time at camp with their friends and EDMO staff. Thank you for making the camp fun and educational. We will see you again next summer!”
