Camp EDMO has been rocking the summer camp vibe since 2004! And… after successfully running camp during Covid, we know that we can do anything! If you missed out on last summer’s fun learning, exploring, and — of course — getting messy, don’t worry. We have lots of virtual opportunities lined up during the school year!
At Camp EDMO, Pre-K through 8th graders experience the magic of summer camp while engaging in hands-on activities that unleash their inner maker, scientist, artist and coder. Camp EDMO provides opportunities for children to navigate collaborative design challenges, build their self confidence, practice mindfulness and have a ton of fun.
Whether you are sending your kiddos or partnering with us as a school, district or organization, a day at Camp EDMO looks like this….
The day begins with a rally filled with singing, jokes, and ridiculous skits to build excitement for the day ahead.
Grouped by grades, campers then rotate through a variety of daily activities based on one of 20 maker, arts, science or technology based themes such as Scratch Coding, Stop-Motion Animation, Simple Chemistry, 3D Modeling, and Dino Science.
Activities include experiential learning about their theme, outdoor recreation (think stretching, yoga, jump roping, silly dance moves, and collaborative games), and time as a team to build their community and hone their social emotional skills.
Throughout the day, EDMO’s counselors interactively engage children’s minds, encouraging creativity and critical thinking skills all while helping them build social connections, empathy and a growth mindset.
The day ends just as it started, with a rally. Just as silly as the first, this is a time for campers and counselors to give gratitude to one another, to the staff and their family and to celebrate another great day!
