Due to local COVID-19 regulations, this site currently requires campers to consecutively attend multiple weeks. With this restriction in mind, we have grouped together some of our exciting themes to give your camper a package they are sure to enjoy.
Week 1: Engineering with Empathy
Open your hearts and minds with EDMO as we create and engineer with empathy! During this week, kids will get to showcase their maker skills while crafting projects that are intended to make people smile. They will use the design thinking process to brainstorm, blueprint, and construct a work of art or a useful invention to make the lives of their loved ones easier. After a year filled with stress and disruption, spreading love and joy has never been so essential in our world. This theme places special emphasis on social and emotional learning, with the intention of creating more connected communities. Engage with others and make the world a little brighter this week!
Week 2: Expressive Arts
Follow your art to Camp EDMO this summer! During this week, kids will explore a variety of expressive art forms. They'll be exposed to a variety of expressive art disciplines, including visual arts, creative writing, dance or movement, music, and dramatic expression. In the process, they will discover how to use their own internal experiences as catalysts for creativity and innovation. Together, we'll talk about how creative engagements are fundamental to the human experience, offering an array of benefits and opportunities for cognitive gains, emotional maturity, improved self-efficacy, and increased empathy. Express yourself this week with us!
Week 3: Video Game Crafts
Let's get Minecrafting! Bring your favorite video game characters to life this week as we make awesome crafts inspired by fun games such as Minecraft, Pokemon, and Animal Crossing. Kids will create colorful 3D art using techniques such as origami, painting, and modeling to make many of the characters they already love. We'll meld gaming, arts, and social-emotional learning: As they create, kids will collaborate with each other on how their favorite characters solve problems and the type of traits needed to build great character.
