Only the best of the best become our camp staff. Take a look at what goes in to recruiting, hiring and training our staff!

Mary Yeh – Camp Director


This is Mary’s first summer as a Camp Director, and she is so excited for the summer!  During the school year, Mary works as part of the School Year Programs team with Edventure More, visiting schools and doing hands-on science.  Before joining Edventure More, 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 in and outside of the classroom.  Growing up, summer camp was a large part of Mary’s summer and she credits camps for providing a fun, safe environment to explore
new skills and make new friends.  Mary is very excited to create a space for campers to grow socially and academically, and interact with a spirit of kindness and curiosity.  In her free time, Mary knits, crochets, reads, swims, runs, walks her dog, and attempts the NY Times crossword puzzle.

Tax Time Fun Facts: Did you know that enrollment fees in Camp Edmo qualify as a childcare tax credit for children 12 and under? Yup, they do. Know what else? Any donation you make to Edventure More, large or small, are not only profoundly appreciated, but also fully tax-deductible.

This is our first ever camp experience and you have set a high bar. Your program is fun and educational. What I love most is your staff. They are super energetic, knowledgeable, and nice! Rachel, the director, is approachable and always available. Love her high energy and smiles! I have no doubt that my child is well cared for while at Camp Edmo.”

I have been extremely pleased with the program. My son has never showed so much excitement. In fact I wish our school had an after school program like yours.”

A very good aspect of camp for our family is that one location can accommodate two ages: Edmo for my younger one, and EdTech for the older one.”

Every day after pick-up, my daughter tells her 4 yr old brother about all the artwork she did and the interesting facts she learned that day. My son then regurgitates the information to their Dad when he comes home from work. “Dad, did you know the daddy seahorse takes care of the babies in his pouch?” Then, of course, my daughter chimes in with more details. I feel like the whole family is attending Camp Edmo!”

*Grand Opening Discount: Only valid for new families who enroll one child in at least 2 weeks in a Grand Opening location. Grand Opening discount cannot be combined with any other 1st Time Camper or Referral discount and subject to availability. Expires 6/1/14.
