4-Week Science & Maker Camp
Arts, Science, Movement, Mindfulness, Engineering, Maker
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: Dino Science
Roar into the summer with dinosaur science! Kids will learn about different dinosaurs and how they impacted the environment as campers put on their excavation gloves and get dirty, uncovering fossils in a dinosaur dig. They will use their knowledge of dinosaur biology to create skeletons, and recreate the beauty of these prehistoric creatures with painted masks. We'll also focus on responsibility and empathy this week as kids learn how to be good environmental stewards and respect the world they live in, keeping it safe for generations of humans and animals to come. Get ready to roar with excitement!
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: Chemistry Lab
Put your goggles on and grab an apron as we dive into the world of atoms, molecules and reactions in Chemistry Lab! This week, kids will put on their science hats and explore chemistry through the lens of fun, hands-on experiments. They'll learn what molecules are made of and how individual atoms determine how substances interact with each other: Explode? Change color? Come together to make a bouncy ball? While experimenting, kids will learn how to collaborate in order to try out new ideas, and they'll problem-solve to make new solutions.
Week 4: Engineering with Empathy
Open your hearts and minds with EDMO as we create and engineer with empathy! During these two weeks, 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. Each week will feature fun new projects and challenges. Engage with others and make the world a little brighter!
