This is Courtney’s fourth summer as a Camp Director for Edventure More and her third summer directing the amazing Palo Alto location! During the school year, Courtney has the exciting job of Outreach Manager for Edventure More where she is responsible for getting information out to schools and communities so that everyone gets to experience the unique programs we offer. Courtney has been working to educate children in a variety of settings for 10+ years. Starting out working with children as the manager of a kid’s martial arts program, she then found her passion for summer camp when she began directing a Humane Education camp while working towards her Animal Science degree. After graduating from Calpoly San Luis Obispo and spending many years in the shelter industry, including working for two years as a surgery technician for veterinary medicine, she decided to make the exciting switch to a full time emphasis on summer camp with her move to the Bay Area to join Edventure More. Courtney is a camper at heart! She lives for all the fun and excitement of camp and cannot wait to share new things with all of our campers. In her free time Courtney loves to read, go to yoga, catch dinner with friends, watch tv, and play with her best friend – her dog Lorelai.
Hello to all of my amazing new and returning Paltos!! I can’t believe that this will be my fourth summer with Edventure More and third year at the amazing Palo Alto site. Each year I learn so much from my campers and staff as we push the silliness to new levels!
I absolutely cannot wait to get this summer started. I’ve been sitting in meetings for weeks now unable to shake off the need to play “Steal the Treasure” or stop humming the “Edmo Vibe Song”. Now we are so close to getting to do these things again – and more! It’s time for messy rallies, loud songs, epic dance-offs, pies, pies, and pies!
I want to take the time to welcome my staff for this summer as well. I have been working for months to compile the perfect mix of talented and memorable returners and enthusiastic and experienced new staff members, and I feel confident that I have the strongest team possible assembled as we move into our summer. I really can’t wait to see all our campers and let them reap the benefits of this fantastic staff.
I hope everyone is ready for some F-U-N! See you soon Palo Alto!”
