It’s getting nearer and nearer. The kids can’t wait for it but you can’t help but dread it at least a little. Are you ready for it?
Yep, in a few short months, school to be out and summer vacation will be here before we know it. One way to keep all involved parties happy is to start planning some fun summer activities. For local SF Bay Area residents, Edventure is coming to our rescue!
Edventure More Summer Camp Programs
Edventure More is a year-round non-profit that aims to inspire curiosity, confidence and kindness in children. During the summer, this organization offers two very special summer camp programs throughout various counties in the Bay Area. Camp Edmo is designed for children entering K-4th grade while Camp EdTech is geared toward those entering 5th – 8th grade.
At camp, children participate in hands-on activities, develop a love of learning and build the skills necessary to thrive, communicate, collaborate, problem solve and think creatively. Edventure More’s one-of-a kind life skills programs, The Edmo and EdTech Vibe games, promote and reinforce these traits to prepare children for the future and put them on the road to becoming happy and successful adults.
Camp Edmo – K-4th
In Camp Edmo, attendees get the opportunity to enjoy arts & science, animation, nature, and recreation activities. These were designed as a collaborative effort with California Academy of Sciences and the Children’s Creativity Museum. In 2014, summer camp themes include Edibles, Magic & Medieval Times, Critterville, Planet Power, and more.
Camp EdTech – 5th-8th
Middle school students can choose to create android- compatible apps, use hardware and software to control analog components like lights and buzzers, make, direct, edit & star in their own short films and animations, develop 2-D and 3-D video games, or express their unique perspective of the world via digital photography. Optional Extended Day: Media Lab. Taught by industry pros and designed with the Children’s Creativity Museum. At Camp EdTech, kids develop tech skills and life skills like creativity, awareness, collaboration and leadership.

Great options, right? I’m signing Munchkin up for 3-D Video Gaming in July. It was either that or App Creation but the 3-D Video Gaming won due to its ‘coolness’ factor.
