As adults, summertime rolls into the rest of the year. We might take a vacation or get off work early on Fridays, but for most of us in the Bay Area, the weather and the workweek don’t change. As parents, we just have the added bonus of needing to find a place for our kids to be when they’re not in school. Preferably a place that won’t wash away all they’ve learned over the year, one that might actually be as fun as our kids deserve, and one that won’t break the bank.
There are lots of options, but Camp Edmo is the only one that centers the experiences it offers on work done in partnership with the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley. With this method, campers are introduced to positive mindsets in order to teach positive skills in order to eventually creating lasting positive parts of the child’s character.
It helps that it also has the stamp of approval from the people: it has been voted the Bay Area’s Best Summer Day Camp, Best Technology Camp, and Best Educational Support Program through BayAreaParent Magazine for the last 10 years.
Camp Edmo offers programs in science, tech, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). There’s the Arts and Sciences program that focuses on design-thinking and creative problem-solving, a Maker program with material projects and lessons on making special devices, and many more for kids Pre-K all the way up to 8th Grade to choose from.
No word on Camp Edmo offering adult summer camp, but we’ll keep our hopes up. For more, check out CampEdmo.org.
