SRJC partners with Camp EDMO for new summer camps in Santa Rosa and Petaluma

Camp EDMO kids playingFebruary 21, 2019, Santa Rosa, CA — Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) announces a new partnership with Camp EDMO™, a leading Bay Area non-profit offering STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) themed summer camp programs, to offer camp at its Santa Rosa and Petaluma campuses this summer.

Each summer camp will offer programs in three areas: maker-infused science, technology, and nature, with sessions ranging from space exploration, maker activities, Roblox coding and game building, animation technology, robotics and much more. Each camp location offers four levels of age-appropriate curriculum for campers ranging from preschool through 8th grade while weaving in games, songs, crafts, sports, and other fun camp activities. It also offers a Leader-in-Training Program for youth entering 9th grade and above.

The new camps will be located at SRJC Santa Rosa at 1501 Mendocino Avenue in Santa Rosa; and SRJC Petaluma at 680 Sonoma Mountain Parkway in Petaluma. These new locations will become part of a family of more than 35 Camp EDMO summer camp locations in San Francisco, the South Bay, the Peninsula, the East Bay, the North Bay, and the Sacramento region, serving more than 6,000 children yearly.

Bringing Camp EDMO to SRJC supports the College’s desire to extend educational enrichment opportunities to children and families, and to help local kids become familiar with the college environment—encouraging their highest ambitions for the future.
