It is with great pleasure that we, John Elley & Sara Spearman, introduce ourselves to you as the new Owners of Echo Lake Resort. We want to thank Corey & Kira and the Kmyta family for entrusting us with the Resort and all of their hard work over the years. We are excited to meet all of our campers & guests this season!
John has an avid love for nature and the outdoors. His childhood memories are of being at his family dairy farm in Chemainus BC, spending summers with his grandpa and grandma and cousins, and fishing the local pond on the farm. His love of nature has led him to hunt and fish in a sustainable manner both in BC and Alberta, respecting the environment and the wildlife surrounding him.
John’s two daughters are his pride and joy, and his first granddaughter arrived in March.
Sara & John met while working for the BC Government as Peace Officers/Investigators and have worked for over 25 years in Public Safety and Emergency Services careers. Sara has worked for the City of Vancouver, RCMP and BC Provincial government and John’s careers have seen him working as a Primary Care Paramedic working both ground and air ambulance in Alberta, Peace Officer, Volunteer Fire Fighter and a Community Coroner here in BC. John has owned and operated businesses including fire safety equipment and worked as an Area Director for the non-profit organization called Young Life.
