Camp Cleanup 2013 was very productive thanks to an impressive turnout of volunteers and summer staff! 24 of us put our shoulders to the wheel and scrubbed, swept, mowed, fixed, and sorted. The camp will be in tip-top shape for our upcoming camping season.
We owe a special thanks to Janet Ball who provided lunch for our crew.
Sydney Morris was our youngest volunteer. She came all the way from Calgary to help grandma Shirley Gehman. Syndey and Shirley are looking forward to Family Camp this summer.
A huge thanks to our volunteers: Kelly Milne, Vern Lowe, Janet Burghardt & Brian Godlonton, Tess, Donna, & Megan Anderson, Janet Ball & Charlie Ball, Leo Quaife, Cristy & Regan Rusaw, Kevin Flaman, Hannelore Beach, Ernest & Nyna Marr, Deb Marsh, Jessica Dore, The Defoes, Shirley Gehman & Sydney Norris,

KEC received some disappointing news earlier this spring: the Alberta Student Temporary Employment Program (STEP) has been cancelled.

You may have noticed the little sapling that has sprouted up on the browser bar of our website. This “money tree” will measure our progress as we introduce a new fundraiser: the Hundredx100 project.
The Hundredx100 project takes a big goal- raising $10,000- and breaks it into 100 smaller steps. We are looking for 100 donors to each make a $100 online donation. Every time a donation is made, we will add another leaf to our money tree. The money we earn from this major fundraiser will be split between supporting our summer program and maintaining the camp facilities.
We already have two donors! You can help us reach our goal by making a donation or approaching new donors on our behalf. You can learn more about this fundraiser at the link below:
On March 17 Sunnybrook United Church hosted a Shamrock Breakfast in support of KEC. Guests were treated to pancakes and… green eggs and ham! The event had a great turnout with many volunteers and supporters decked out in their finest green attire. Due to many donors and volunteers, the event raised $1000 for camp. We owe a huge thank-you to Sunnybrook United and event coordinator, Vern Lowe.
