Camp Edmo Gives Campers MORE: What People are Saying about our Arts & Science and Animation Camp
My sons LOVE Camp Edmo and find it very engaging and enriching. I love that it adds an academic and artistic component that lots of camps don’t have – and in a very fun way. This year, with animation, camp was even more engaging and introduced the kids to a higher level of art and science than they had known. They’ve loved it and I’m thrilled at what they’ve learned.” …Michelle G., 3rd, St. Cecilia
I just attended the family day presentation and the sheer joy and energy conveyed by the staff from the Camp Director to all the CIT’s was infectious…From the very friendly team who greet my daughters every morning, to all of the songs and games introduced to them this week; the entire experience has been a very engaging one for my daughters.”…Art Y., 3rd Grade Parent, St. Cecilia
Camp Edmo is amazing! Our son’s first camp experience couldn’t have been any better! He has been singing the songs, enthusiastically telling us about the counselors, his new friends, the facts that he’s learned, and all the fun he’s having! He’s just simply happy…Seeing his enthusiasm brings me so much happiness! As a parent it’s the little things that really make big difference. I definitely felt the Edmo Vibe!”…Julie H, 1st Grade Parent, St. Gabriel
My daughter came home wildly excited about her projects…from making soda, art and camp songs. to making new friends. Thank you so much for making her experience one she’ll remember for a lifetime!”… Cheryl Morand, 2011 Larkspur Parent
My daughter was really excited to share with me what she did and learned at the camp every day. She even said to me that I really like the science we learned at the camp, much better than the science I did at kindergarten.” …2011 Cupertino Parent
Last night, Kate showed us the experiment from yesterday’s camp using milk, food coloring and dish soap. She loved acting like the teacher, and she is planning to redo it for her cousins when we visit them in August. I really love that she was so excited to share her new knowledge with all of us.” …Michelle Morgano, 2011 Noe/Twin Peaks Parent
Parents Get MORE
My daughter literally flies out of bed and runs to camp! She just can’t wait to get her hands into all the crafts and projects. Please come to our school. We can set up for Edmo to teach our students!”…Bonnie T., 1st Grade Parent
I went to the family afternoon last Friday 7/13. It was a great experience. The songs, games and animation that was shown to the parents were excellent. If this is a snapshot of the interaction between camp counselor and the children at the camp, Camp Edmo is stellar. If I can in the future, my daughter and her sister, when she is of age, will be attending for as long as they can. All of the camp counselors, instructors, and the Director, whom I have interacted with, are fabulous! Thank you!” – Marie N., 2nd Grade, Bay Farm Elementary
Camp Edmo fosters confidence and enthusiasm. My daughters come home singing songs and keeping the Edmo Vibe going strong. I love that the kids have so much fun and continue to learn new things. You have exceeded my expectations.”…Candy T.
(Liked) Just hearing my son talk about the new friends he has made,and how they are collaborating in his group and coming up with awesome ideas and funny aspects to their film.” …Greg Szilagyi, 2011 Alameda Parent
If Edmo in the Park was offered all summer, we would choose Edmo in the Park…Our daughter (age 7) loved the field trips, the time outdoors, and the room to roam.”…Christine Witherspoon, 2011 Edmo in the Park Parent
I want to thank you for giving my granddaughter a wonderful camp experience this past summer, and for the scholarship that made it possible. She just loved her time at Camp Edmo. I was impressed with the responsiveness of the staff, with the attentiveness to kids’ safety, with the wonderful creativity at each session. Camp Edmo nurtures children’s inquisitiveness and creativity, and it’s all done with such wonderful enthusiasm.”…Mary Goodell, 2011 Oakland Grandmother
This is our third year at Edmo. Every year I think Edmo cannot get any better, but each year Izaiah grows, learns and becomes more confident. He feels so valued and supported by the excellent staff at Camp Edmo, he is willing to step out of his comfort zone and do something unexpected…Thank you for making my child feel emotionally safe at camp so he can be his true self.”…Charity Pitcher-Cooper, 2011 Noe/Twin Peaks Parent
If Camp Edmo had a school, I would sign my kid up. Speaking as a Teacher, you guys seem to dot all your i’s and cross all your t’s in a truly amazing way, doing everything right and to a consistent high standard that is VERY difficult to achieve amongst all of the moving parts you have to deal with… thank you!”… Katie de Vries, 2011 Alameda Parent
These camp counselors were AMAZING!! My daughter felt very safe (it was her first camp) and I was warmly welcomed and helped at each and every drop off and pick up! The staff’s smiles, enthusiasm and general “goodness” was something a mother couldn’t ask for more of…they all were so WONDERFUL!!!”…Cheryl Morand, 2011 Larkspur Parent
I love the Edmo Vibe game, and the focus on making friends and being kind! It is a great idea, and an important addition that many camps don’t pay attention to.” …Beth Katz, 2011 Larkspur Parent
My daughter loved Camp Edmo last year which is why we signed her up again this year. I knew she had at least one friend attending with her, but I was very happy and relieved to hear that she had made a new friend on her very 1st day. I don’t know if it’s the camp format, activities, staff or a combo of everything, but Edmo is very conducive to having fun and making friends in a relaxed, non-competitive atmosphere. Love the art projects that come home and hearing about the on-going projects and science experiments!”…Melanie Dunn, 2011 Moraga Parent
Camp Edmo Lets Kids Be MORE
She loves everything about Edmo…She went from reluctant camp-goer at the beginning of summer to always excited, even when she did not know anyone also attending. Confidence is huge, so thanks for making it fun!!”…Nicole C., 1st Grade Parent, Bubb Elementary
My daughter was given the privilege this week of giving a toast/speech about water (to encourage the kids to drink more). During the ride home from camp, she told me about it and asked for some paper and a pen…She just bubbled with enthusiasm from that experience and I loved the fact that the Los Altos Edmo staff and campers gave her such a safe and happy environment to express herself in a positive way.”…Christine F., 1st Grade Parent, Stratford School
Camp Edmo is really stimulating my son’s creativity and helping his social skills to develop, which is outstanding for a camp experience.” …Julie R., 1st Grade Parent, Donald Rheem
The children just loved Edmo. When given the choice between a trip to Disneyland and Edmo they chose Edmo. The infectious chants have livened up our days.”…Adrian Rich, 2011 Palo Alto Parent
You guys did a great job! My son was very excited and inspired by all he learned….All of you were very friendly and with lots of energy! an A++++ from our family! … I have never seen (my son) so excited by his learning as he was this year at Camp Edmo. Thank-you All!!!!”…Renee Tremmel, 2011 Noe/Twin Peaks Parent
My daughter LOVED earning her Edmo Vibe magnets. Awesome idea!!! Definitely instilled in her a sense of accomplishment and connection. Bravo team!!!” …Edward Kenna, 2011 Alameda Parent
I am very happy with Camp Edmo! This is the first Camp Edmo session I sent my child to. She loved it. She was apprehensive about going to camp because she knew no one…When I picked her up on Monday, she was so excited and told me she made five friends! She was very excited and couldn’t wait to go back the next day!!” …Frances Chiu, 2011 Alameda Parent
My children made new friends the very first day (of camp) and were so excited to tell me so…Camp Edmo is their favorite camp and they always come home happy and talking about their day… A W E S O M E…Awesome-are-we. Over and over again!” …Kim Dilena, 2011 Larkspur Parent
