School’s Out MOCHA’s In (SOMI)

Keeping the kids thinking, solving and creating on days off from school!

When Oakland, Berkeley and Alameda schools have days off, MOCHA fills in with day camps that have STEAM focused projects. Our intention is to engage your child’s mind while exploring projects that stimulate problem solving skills, encourage innovative approaches and deliver complete works of art at the end of the day. Ages 6-12.
