Jõekääru camp is in its second week of sun, fun, learning and sports with Estonian friends from all around Ontario, the US and even Eesti. 

The majority of kasvatajad counselors hail from Estonia and the first week of laager (camp) was one of complete Estonian-language immersion for those with a good grasp of the language. The second, sports week saw the number of campers jump to 67 and will culminate in a Family Sports Day this Sat. and perekonna/päev (Family Day) starting at 11 am this Sunday, July 21.
