Review for Edventure More, San Leandro, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Edmo is our summer go-to for literally, happy campers.

My 3 kids have attended Edmo every summer for the last 4 years. It's always one of our smoothest and happiest weeks all summer.

My boys are older and tend to prefer the computer-based classes: coding, Minecraft, etc. I didn't know anything about coding, and as a parent, I must say I was thrilled to have them come home having coded and created their own video games. They use a program, and the camp has introduced this activity into our lives. The boys would always come home from camp and want to get right back online and show me what they were learning - which was fun and impressive to me.

My daughter tends to prefer the maker activities - meaning each week the campers create some very cool contraption that is motorized, or hooked up to a solar panel, or some kind of cool science-y yet exciting thing like that. She was always so proud to show me everything they had been working on all day.

Content aside, it's clear Edmo works hard to build into their values and ethics and mission for their camp, very inclusive positive themes that run through the programming. We still have magnets and fun little trinkets that the kids would collect throughout the years.

My boys are now old enough to CIT, and I hope to enroll them in that next summer. My daughter asks to go back every year, and of course I will grant that - as all parents know, we need kids to be happy in the summer, and if they love it, they are going!

Thank you, Edmo. We are looking forward to next summer.
