We’re here to help you raise Curious, Courageous and Kind kids. It’s just as important to learn how to code as it to unplug and go on a hike. Or to learn how to design buildings as it is to create community. Get the best of all learning worlds in one EDMO™ summer. Each unique weekly theme features a different combination of Maker-infused Science, Technology, and Nature lessons. Enroll in several different themes for maximum 21st Century skill-building. To learn more about the method behind our camp-ness, check out the EDMO Method™ page.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Cubetto! Made of tactile and hardwearing wood, Cubetto is your camper’s guide into the world of coding. Screen-less, friendly and ready to play, Cubetto, designed and built by Primo Toys, is the first robot of its kind; teaching children as young as three the core concepts of coding. Through interaction with Cubetto, EDMO Jr. campers will plan, program and debug sequences of blocks that make Cubetto move. Starting with basic directional blocks, campers will graduate into more complex areas of coding logic, like functions, loops and conditionals, all through the fun of experiential play. Using these coding concepts, campers will have Cubetto solve puzzles, tell stories and venture across oceans, deserts, medieval landscapes, and even into outer space!

Hack Minecraft’s code and make the game your own!  In our Minecraft Mod Coder program, campers will learn to use Java code to create a Minecraft Forge mod.  A “mod” (short for “modification”) is a kind of plugin that can add all new game content to Minecraft. Campers will learn the fundamentals of Java coding as they design and program their own mod, allowing them to invent their own items, blocks, tools, armor, crafting recipes, and more. Ever wanted a suit of armor made from obsidian? A pickaxe that summons lightning bolts? An “ultra-snowball” that can freeze a whole lake in an instant? Jump into Java coding and turn your Minecraft imagination into a reality!

Soar into the field of ornithological research! This week, campers will join the Science Action Club, powered by the California Academy of Sciences, to collect data and learn all about birds. Campers become citizen scientists and ornithologists (bird scientists) and explore feathers, flight and the features that make birds unique. Using field research tools and smart technology, campers will identify local birds and investigate environmental changes that impact bird behavior. They’ll also submit bird counts to eBird, a citizen science project from the Cornell Lab of Ornithologym that will help scientists better understand these important species.

Turn up the heat and get ready to create edible molecular masterpieces using the power of chemistry. In Molecular Gastronomy, students will investigate the physical and chemical transformations of ingredients that occur during cooking. Through the making of molecular gastronomic recipes such as oil powders, foams, fluid gels, and infusions, students will learn how different substances and chemicals added at the right time during the cooking process can change the molecular structure of solids and liquids, transforming them into completely new, interesting, and even edible, treats.

Ready. Set. Go. Racers, gear up for a thrilling downhill adventure! Campers will learn carpentry and woodworking skills as they each build their own derby car racer and participate in a fast paced race for DIY Derby glory! Campers will explore basic physics concepts to figure out how to create their cars to be the fastest in a downhill race. Campers will then use that knowledge to draw out the design and carve their racer out of wood using saws, dremels and wood rasps. As a class, campers will then plan out and build their very own race track using cardboard, scrap wood and other materials. At the end of the week campers will race their vehicles against one another, collect data about their cars and redesign them to be even faster! Take your derby racing skills to the next level and turn downhill model racing on its head in DIY Derby!
