Another Successful Summer at Camp Ekon
Jesuit administered Camp Ekon experienced another successful season this past summer under the leadership of camp executive director, John Sullivan, S.J., and camp director, Meg Doherty.
Ekon had record registration numbers this summer with most sessions full to capacity. Other highlights included the distribution of almost $15,000 in bursaries to children who would otherwise have been unable to attend camp and the attendance of more than 20 campers with special needs. For a second year, Ekon’s leadership program hosted two campers from Riverton, Jamaica. Two Jesuit scholastics also joined Ekon this summer and participated in all aspects of camp life.
Young campers attending were able to be a part of a community that revolves around the spirit of St. Jean de Brébeuf - willingly taking more than a fair share of the load, living in harmony with people of different backgrounds, respecting the environment, and mastering life skills in order to make positive contributions to society.
Ekon has committed to two major building projects for the off-season. The existing “deer hut” dormitory will be taken down and a new cabin built in its place. Reserved for the youngest campers, this structure has been in disrepair for the past few years. A new outdoor daily mass chapel will also be built. Both these projects have been made possible with generous donations from friends of Ekon.
