Camp EDMO for Leaders-in-Training!

Built specifically for kids who have aged out of our summer camps, our EDMO Leader-in-Training (LIT) program is for kids entering 9th through 12th grades who are looking to build leadership and facilitation skills. Focusing on team bonding and a deepened sense of responsibility in both the day-to-day interactions and overall vibe and camp experience, LITs gain community service hours, earn a letter of recommendation, cultivate strengths, and lay the foundation for leadership positions in the future. And that’s not all — LITs also become priority applicants for paid positions with EDMO!

Attending Camp EDMO as an LIT

The LIT program rotates weekly through five camp themes — Leadership, Teamwork, Emotional Intelligence, Diversity + Inclusion, and Work Ethic. LIT campers choose the week/s they would like to participate in. Each week, LITs complete a challenge to showcase what they have learned, while gaining real-world job experience, building mentor relationships with experienced staff, and earning service hours.

What parents and kids are saying

In-Person Camps
All kids feel welcome
The counselors enthusiastically greet the children (by name!), along with parents, at drop-off and pick-up so that we all (especially the kids) feel so welcome. Plus they constantly repeat the children's names while communicate with them. What kid wouldn't feel welcome?
In-Person Camp Parent
Fun, education and safe experience
I'm floored by this camp! They created an amazingly fun, educational and safe experience for my son. He is so shy and insecure around new groups of people. But it's obvious the organization really trains their staff (more so than any other camp/educational facility I've experienced).

My son has really bad social anxiety and I haven’t seen him this happy is so long. I was in tears last night when he was telling me how happy he is at camp. You guys are doing an amazing job, thank you.

Engaging virtual class!
This is the most engaged I've seen my son in ANY virtual class thus far. We will be back for sure!
Online Camp Parent
Virtual camp feels like regular camp
My kid has been so proud of his accomplishments in coding and his ability to finish something. Sometimes he struggles with getting frustrated and giving up and this has been a great exercise in sticking to it even when it is hard.
