2022 EDMO Summer Camp Themes

Maker

Let's explore all the things that bring us together and celebrate the differences that make us unique! In this class kids will dive into the art behind cultural celebrations from around the world. Kids will build their own African Mancala game then head to australia to create aboriginal clapping sticks. Kids will expand their horizons while practicing curiosity and empathy as they get a first hand look at a variety of customs and traditions that connect us.

Maker

Get lost in the nature that you create! Come explore flowers and forests through arts and crafts. Buddy up and build a beautiful summer landscape. Use rich soil and plant dye to paint pictures and make brilliant artwork from nature. Summertime fun explored through art and gardening projects. Practice being a more curious learner and artist as you collaborate with others.

You don’t have to fly across the world just to go on a safari. Come and make the tallest giraffe using every day craft supplies. Add a lion and lizard! Why not some monkeys, too? All you need is your imagination and markers, paint, cardboard and paper plates. Once you’ve made all your safari animals, you’ll create an elaborate African landscape, too. You'll also practice the skill of kindness as you create with other campers. You'll grow your courage muscle, as well, throughout the week.

Welcome to the wonderful world of tech! In this class, kids will learn about problem solving, computational thinking and coding through the Cubetto robot. Screenless, friendly and ready to play, Cubetto, will teach children the core concepts of coding. Through interaction with Cubetto, kids will courageously plan, program and debug sequences of blocks that make Cubetto move. Starting with basic directional blocks, campers will graduate into more complex areas of coding logic, like functions, loops and conditionals, all through the fun of experiential play. Using these coding concepts, kids will use curiosity and problem-solving to have Cubetto solve puzzles, tell stories and venture across oceans, deserts, and worlds of their own creation!
