Review for Edventure More, San Leandro, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've had the great pleasure of working with Camp EdMo and its fantastic leadership team on integrating social-emotional learning and mindfulness into their work with children. As the education director at the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley, I've collaborated with many educational organizations that are striving to bring these topics and skills into their work, and Camp EdMo, by far, has been one of the most thoughtful and deliberate organizations in how they achieve this. They are very careful to keep in mind the needs of the children as they create ways to weave SEL and mindfulness into daily activities. But they don't stop there. Camp EdMo also understands the need for training the adults in SEL and mindfulness so that they can better teach the children--and they're very thoughtful in how they approach this training. The leadership recognizes that many of the adults are at that age where they are just figuring out what they want to do with their lives -- so they tailor the training to fit those needs, as well. Bravo to Camp EdMo! I sincerely hope that many out-of-school programs will follow their lead in bringing these important skills to children everywhere.
