EKO CAMP | Spring and Fall Semesters

 

Known as our most popular event, Camp EKO is a guaranteed blast! Throughout each academic year, students ranging in grades between middle and high school levels anticipate the arrival of Camp EKO. Normally held during one weekend in the spring and fall semester, camp creates an avenue for students to personally develop their leadership skills through workshops, teambuilding activities, various discussions and problem solving initiatives. Students are also introduced to current social issues affecting the urban city areas. They are then given a safe space amongst one another to divulge into deep conversations about these issues. By the end of camp, students are well aware of the qualities they possess to remain consistent with their growth in leadership. Not only is Camp EKO an effective weekend for our students, it’s also FUN! Our kids experience an incredible time with their peers on a level that breaks barriers and encourages bonds to form. As we keep the camp tradition alive through our skits, songs and field challenges, we set the perfect space for students to be true to their selves and their ambitions. Our next camp will be taking place this fall during September 28 through September 30th. We invite you to view our camp’s page and volunteer with us!

 EKO ON CAMPUS VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

 

  • School Volunteer - In addition to our programs, EKO partners with schools throughout the Orlando Community: Lee Middle School, Lockhart Middle School, Maitland Middle School and Edgewater High School. By volunteering during the lunch periods of these schools throughout the week, we maintain a relationship with our students and the community through our service. During lunch, we assist administrators with the students within the cafeteria and also engage with the students as we help monitor the environment. As the students become familiar with your face and personality, they definitely began to share their academic and personal progress during discussions. Consider giving back time to these students and our community! For additional information on dates, location and time for our school visits, please contact our Program Director, Jermaine Reynolds (jreynolds@everykidoutreach.org) Along with EKO application, additional documentation must be provided for Orange Public County School System.
