Meet Marlena – LUM Camp Director
Camper, Counselor & Director – 21 Years So Far
Marlena Edmondson is the director of LUM Camp 2021. She earned a BSW in Political Science & Social Work from IUPUI, and an MSW with a concentration in Child Welfare from Indiana University.
Marlena was a LUM Camper as a child for three years and LUM Camp volunteer camp counselor for 14 years, before become the LUM Camp director in 2018. During the rest of the year, she is the Student Services Coordinator at Mayflower Mill Elementary School with the Tippecanoe School Corporation. Marlena grew up in Lafayette, graduated from Harrison High School, and currently lives on the north side of Lafayette with her two cats, Dudley & Zelly.
LUM is lucky to have someone with Marlena’s passion, talent and experience be a part of the LUM Camp program for the past 21 years.
Please note: LUM is working closely with the professional staff at Hanging Rock Assembly Camp, the long-time host site of LUM Camp. LUM Camp is being planned in compliance with and exceeding the guidelines developed by the American Camp Association and the YMCA of the USA. All donations to LUM Camp will be used entirely on the campers’ experience, hopefully this year, but if not, next.
