Give Snaps

Starting day one at camp, our campers learn to show gratitude towards others by giving SNAPS. SNAPS are a distinctive action and sound pattern that direct positive energy toward someone being recognized for a kind act: “Pat-Pat-Clap-Clap-Snap-Snap-YEEAAAH!” (Two pats, two claps, two snaps, wiggly fingers sending the energy on its way.) It’s impossible not to smile when you get SNAPS. Just ask the folks in our EDMO Blog.

Gain Skills + Rewards

In our EDMO® Live! Half and Full Day Camps, we encourage and recognize campers who demonstrate each of the characteristics of the EDMO Recipe™ both at camp and at home. As part of our SEL Skills Game, campers earn “Recipe Points” when they show Responsibility, Empathy, Collaboration, Initiative, Problem Solving, and Decision Management – SEL skills that are all a part of The EDMO Method® we incorporate into all of our EDMO programs and activities.

“When my daughter came home after the 1st day of camp, she put on her camp shirt, picked up her Guinea pig and asked me to take a photo for the t-shirt contest. The next day, she was all smiles when telling me how the counselors celebrated kids who completed the challenge. ”
