EKO CAMP is here!!!!! We are delighted that you are considering our camp for your youth. Every Kid Outreach, Inc. will be taking youth from Eatonville and surrounding communities to a weekend Christian camp in the national forest of Ocala, located in Ocklawaha, FL. Since established in 1991, EKO has reached more than 3,000 teenagers through it's bi-annual camping weekend. Thank you for allowing Every Kid Outreach, Inc. to minister to your youth. Our camp is an exciting, high adventure experience that we are sure your youth will enjoy.
Information for Parents
A Peak at Camp
This camp will provide a reprieve from the pressures of negative elements that plague our communities. At camp youth have an opportunity to take a good look at the Christian faith, fellowship with other young believers from around the state, and participate in a variety of recreation activities with trained camp counselors throughout the entire weekend. All youth will sleep in beautiful spacious air-conditioned modern dormitories. These kids experienced the time of their lives and had the opportunity to open up to their leaders sharing their struggles, fears and thoughts about God. EKO Camp has, and continues to be, an effective means for sharing the Gospel with teens.
What to Pack
CAMPERS WILL NEED shorts and sneakers for activities, jeans and light jacket for cool nights and swimwear. Ladies will be asked to cover bathing suits with tank tops and swim shorts/basketball shorts. Bring toiletry items such as toothpaste, deodorant, lotion, soap, personal hygiene products, etc. We will NOT be staying in tents, but instead air condition dormitories. You’ll need a towel & washcloth, pillow and bed linens for a twin bed.
This camp is a way for all involved to get away from the normal distractions of the world and have an opportunity to hear God speak to them like never before. So that you do not miss a moment of the action and get the full camp experience, we ask that you NOT to bring any electronic devices (i.e. cell phones, cd players, radios, mp3 players, I-pods or laptops.)
The cost for the weekend is $185.00 per kid. Every Kid Outreach has committed $60.00 per kid. Your final cost will be $125.00 which includes food, transportation, lodging, swimming, basketball, canoeing, ropes course, ping pong, pool, music and much more! To ensure ample time for processing and secure space, please have registration forms in by Sunday, February 28th and registration cost ($125.00) turned in by March 3rd.
Spending money for souvenirs and snacks is optional. The average for spending money is about $10.00 to $15.00. We will have over 18 counselors, which will make the ratio at this time 1:9. Our relationship with Christ allows us to have a wholesome weekend of fun through various sports, talent shows, creative dance, music, talks and unconditional love.
Contacting Your Child at Camp
We know that sometimes parents get more anxious than kids do on overnight trips, but we promise to give them the best care while they’re away and hope that you can use this weekend for some personal time of your own. If you need to contact your child at camp in case of an emergency, please call the camp staff directly. A staff person will make sure your message is delivered to your son or daughter as soon as possible.
