They develop an understanding of basic physical science concepts such as gears, pulleys, levers, wheels, and axles through observation, reasoning, prediction, and critical thinking. Campers will be able to learn by experience, collaboration and creatively finding solutions. That’s LEGO smart and Edmo fun!

  • Grades: Entering 2nd–4th grade

More than One Method

Your child will experience a blended learning methodology developed over 10 years in partnership with the CA Academy of Sciences and the Exploratorium. Campers build Physical Science, Natural Science, Engineering, and multiple Art Skills through our different approaches to learning that all start with fun and end with reflection, discovery and sharing:

  • Guided Instruction: Starts with a series of curiosity-inspiring questions or facts, then transitions into a hands-on activity that exemplifies the concept being taught. Kids then extend the learning by experimenting with their creations. 
    E.g. Pickle Batteries, Slime, Stomp Rockets

  • Design Challenge: Campers work in groups to create solutions towards a common goal. Groups brainstorm solutions to a problem, use available materials to prototype and test solutions, then make modifications based on their observations. 
    E.g. Castle design & building, Glider design & building, Lava Crossing Rec Game

  • Free Exploration: Campers are given a wide assortment of materials and are encouraged to use their creativity to build something unique, artistic or that serves a specific purpose. Lessons are drawn from their experience.
    E.g. Build something that spins, Use kitchenware to create an animal, Create a tasty soda flavor

  • Observational Learning: Campers learn to hone their senses and practice focus, attention and awareness. They record what they perceive, report their findings and draw conclusions.
    E.g. Bug hunts, Bird watching, Game of “Animal I Spy”
More than One Intelligence

Your child will build capacity in multiple types of intelligence that research has shown are required to succeed in the 21st Century. Our curriculum focuses on four areas of a child’s development each day:

  • Social: In addition to our dedicated “Team Time” hour each day, our science, art, animation, nature, and recreation projects build lifelong skills like communication, collaboration and teamwork. Kids need to work with others to complete challenges and compromise to come up with movie plots, invent team names or decide which game to play on Friday.

  • Emotional: Daily EQ activities use Kimochis’ “toys with feelings” to help kids build vocabulary around their emotions. They also help them empathize with other kids who have different personalities, resulting in fewer hurt feelings and more new friendships being made at camp!

  • Academic: Hands-on activities help keep kids’ minds active during the long summer months. They also help reinforce grade level science and math concepts while encouraging a fun-loving approach to learning that’s intrinsically driven.

  • Physical: Recreation features games designed by Playworks®. Most of our games are non-competitive or ones where players change teams regularly. Games build upon skills learned earlier in the week to more complex games involving lots of teamwork and strategy later on.
More than One Kid

Your child doesn’t fit a cookie-cutter mold. Our camp staff get to know your child and celebrate their uniqueness. Not everyone will be an inventor in life, but everyone will invent themselves.

  • Getting to Know Campers: All week long your child will have one group Counselor. It’s the Counselor’s job to learn about your child and find those teachable moments that help them become their best selves.

  • Diversity: One of our main objectives as an organization is to create the most diverse, inclusive and culturally rich environment for your child. We believe finding commonalities and celebrating differences is one of the most powerful ways to teach a child empathy and socialization skills.

  • Creativity & Self-expression: Camper projects have ample room for kids to infuse their personalities. This creates greater ownership over the learning. Camper families will also be given weekly T-shirt Challenges to encourage your child to engage you and their community with their “Edmo Vibe”.
More than One Program

Your family can choose from multiple camp programs with the same Edventure More standard of quality. Each is designed to generate curiosity, build multiple forms of intelligence and 21st Century learning skills.

  • Arts & Science Program (Ent. K-4th Grade): Campers complete hands-on natural science and physical science experiments, multi-disciplinary art projects and also play outdoor recreation and team building activities.

  • Animation Program (Ent. 2nd -4th Grade): Campers create a character and then work with friends to write a script, draw a storyboard, build a set, and film an animated short.

  • Park Program (Ent. K-4th Grade): Campers spend almost the entire day outdoors; going on nature hikes, completing arts & science projects and playing team building games. Entering 2nd-4th grade campers also go on weekly field trips.
More than One Day

Your child’s camp day doesn’t have to stop at pick up time. Your child will be encouraged to continue the “Vibe” of curiosity, confidence, creativity, and kindness at home and in their community.

  • T-Shirt Challenges: Each week your camper can complete a challenge and take a picture in their camp t-shirt doing something that shows how they’ve rocked the vibe.

  • The Edmo Vibe Game: Your kids will receive special Vibe Cards that represent an action they did that represented curiosity, confidence or kindness at camp. They can also earn cards outside of camp, like finding a fun fact to stump the Camp Director.

  • Mo’s Treehouse: When your kids come home pumped about what they learned, you can visit Mo’s Treehouse online to find additional resources, projects, websites, jokes, etc. that relate to our camp themes.

  • Daily Downloads: Each day you or your child will receive a sheet that describes what they learned in camp, what to expect tomorrow and special reminders from your Camp Director.
More than One Impact

It’s part of our mission to support the families and schools in your community year-round with high quality enrichment programs. Your camp proceeds and generous donations fund:

  • Camp Scholarships: We help close the achievement gap between low-income and high-income families by providing hundreds of scholarships each year.

  • Subsidized In Class Programs: We offer both public and private school teachers affordable in class science programs featuring museum quality, hands-on projects that align with CA State Science Standards.

  • Fully Subsidized Camps: We currently host two camps that are subsidized by public agencies for communities most at-risk for Summer Learning Loss. Our Oakland HUB ½ day camp is funded by the Oakland Unified School District and hosted at REACH Academy. The SF Department of Children fund our SF Community Camp program hosted at the San Francisco School.

  • Year-round Fundraising: We apply for grants, lead fundraisers and accept donations year-round to create greater access to our award-winning School Year and Summer programs.

I went to the family afternoon last Friday. 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 and excellent…. if I can in the future, my older 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 are fabulous! Thank you!”

My son came back home on Monday very excited about playing a pirate game with another boy. He really loved it and I was surprised to hear every detail. He was also very excited about the theme this week. I’ve been learning all of the animal facts he’s picked up. He especially enjoyed making a beaver and came home and made a “forest” on the living room floor to play with some of his toy animals. Edmo is really stimulating his creativity and helping his social skills to develop, which is outstanding for a camp experience.”

My son told me the other day Camp Edmo is the opposite of school…The classroom is super fun and recess is boring. At school, class is boring and recess is fun’ :)”

My daughter was nervous on the first day, but when I picked her up, she was so excited and proud of her new friendships and work on the volcanic island. She woke up early the next day, put on her shirt and was ready to go out the door ( at 6:30 am!)”
