The History of May & Lorne Brown's Camp Deka (1961-1976)

This web site has been created in order to share memories of the staff and campers who participated in the original operation of Camp Deka in the 1960s and early 1970s.

May & Greg Brown have now completed their Camp Deka history book which was launched at a wonderful party on Sunday, March 29th, 2009 - click here for reunion photos and a video of the speeches. Please email May Brown with your book order quantities ($30 plus $5 postage in Canada via paypal or mailing in your cheque - see contact us).

I hope that each and every former Deka camper from this period has a chance to visit this site.
