EDMO is not your typical learning program. It’s a movement.

We are out to make the world a better place — one learning opportunity at a time.

Mission
We provide equitable access to out-of-school learning opportunities designed to help every person cultivate a sense of self, own their impact, and show up in the world with curiosity, courage, and kindness.

Vision
We envision a more connected world where all people feel confident on their journey toward self-discovery and cultivate a deep sense of responsibility.

Values

Inclusivity
We meet every person where they are by creating intentional and safe spaces that foster a sense of belonging. In the pursuit of a more equitable world, we work to create programming that is available to all people — regardless of background or learning style.

Authenticity
We ignite curiosity and creativity through programs that encourage kids and team members to embrace progress, not perfection. We nurture personal growth by creating spaces for community members to courageously be their authentic selves.

Connection
We cultivate opportunities for kids and team members to collaborate with empathy, resilience, and integrity. Understanding that we are all connected, we build programs that fortify an understanding of every person’s impact on their community and the world.

History

EDMO - Summer camps, tutoring, social emotional learning and STEAM
1999-2004
EDMO Co-founders Eduardo Caballero and Sharon Mor meet at SCORE! Educational Centers in Santa Clarita. Sharon, a UCLA graduate, becomes Eduardo’s first boss out of college. There, Eduardo, a Cornell University graduate, shared his dream of one day opening his own summer camp with Sharon. (Fun fact: Eduardo had worked at day camps in his hometown of San Francisco ever since he was 12 years old. He thought it was the best job in the world and couldn’t think of anything he’d rather do with his life.)

2004
Destiny called! While backpacking through South America, Eduardo got a call from Sharon asking if he wanted to start that camp he always talked about. They decided to start a nonprofit summer camp that focused on building the traits of curiosity, courage, and kindness through hands-on arts and science programs.

2004 (summer)
The first Camp Edventure More (now known as “EDMO”) opened in Mill Valley, California, with a curriculum written by staff from Bay Area museums. The camp was small, with only 60 kids over four weeks, but a huge hit with kids and parents.

Model

We provide high-quality, year-round, out-of-classroom programming, with an emphasis on on-site and online summer camps, supplemented by after-school programs and one-on-one tutoring and mentoring sessions. We use a multi-layered approach to learning so that kids can gain hard skills (like STEAM and foreign languages) while practicing soft skills (SEL) through The EDMO Method. We employ well-trained staff members who are passionate about the EDMO mission and educate by example. We partner with school districts, organizations, and local communities to provide equitable access to out-of-school learning for kids across the socio-economic spectrum. By holistically educating kids, we connect them to the impact their learning and actions have on the world around them.

Nonprofit

For people — not for profit. As a 501(c)(3) organization, we are dedicated to earmarking funds that make access to our programs a reality. In fact, 5% of our revenue and 100% of all donations go to our Financial Assistance program.
