Kevin is the Director of Camp Awosting. Kevin grew up attending Awosting as a camper from age 5 and later joined the staff, working his way to Head Counselor. After getting his Bachelor of Arts degree in Commercial Recreation and Business from Southern Connecticut State University, Kevin joined Ebner Camps full time. He has over 25 years experience as a camp administrator, as the former director and founder of Boulder Ridge Day Camp and founder of Eagle Rock Day Camp, both run by Ebner Camps. Kevin has been providing strategic oversight of Camp Awosting’s program since he took over as President of Ebner Camps in 2006, after his father, Buzz, retired. Under Kevin’s leadership, Awosting and Chinqueka have undergone significant renovations to many of their facilities, including improved dining halls, updated cabins and additional adventure courses (High Ropes, Low Ropes).
Kevin’s wife, Liz, is also very involved in the camp operation, running the food service for Boulder Ridge Day Camp and the wedding/outing facility run on the same property, The Village at Boulder Ridge. Their son, K.J., also attended Awosting as a child and went on to become staff at Boulder Ridge Day Camp, where he currently is the C.I.T. Director. Their daughter, Kylee, is a camper at Camp Chinqueka.
Kevin’s interests outside camp include golf, cooking, spending quality time with his family and taking care of his dog, a 150lb Leonberger named Goose.
