This is Mary’s second summer as a Camp Director, and she cannot wait! During the school year, Mary is a graduate student studying Museum Studies at San Francisco State University. Previously, she worked as a 7th and 8th grade science teacher in rural Louisiana with Teach for America. Mary has a BA in Art History and French from UCLA, and has loved combining her interests in art and science within and outside of the classroom. Growing up, summer camp was the highlight of Mary’s summer and she credits camp for providing a fun, safe environment to try new things and make new friends. She cannot wait to for campers to come and have similarly formative and fun experiences this summer. In her free time, Mary knits, crochets, reads, swims, runs, walks her dog, and attempts the NY Times crossword puzzle.
I am thrilled to return to Camp Edmo and Camp EdTech for a second summer as Camp Director at the Oakland location. Last summer was filled with so many laughs and such memorable moments and my staff and I can’t wait to create more this year! It’s going to be a blast to welcome friends and families, old and new, to camp. I know we’ll learn and grow a lot together. My staff and CITs are a multi-talented crew and we’ve been preparing all year to deliver the best season yet. Welcome to the Oakland Edventure More family!”
