“This was the first year my daughter has attended Camp ECHO and she cannot wait to go back next year!”
“This is a great program! My kiddo loves going and making new friends!”
“You always do a fantastic job of hiring counselors that work well with the kids. I appreciate seeing the roster and knowing that many of them are college aged students focusing on early education, physical fitness related or other health related majors. They are setting a great example for younger ones. Thank you!”

This camp is jam-packed with a variety of non-stop activities that will keep your child going for the entire day. The majority of the day is located outside where children play, exercise, gain independence, learn life skills, make friends and have a memorable summer. In addition to arts, crafts, sports, and games, campers explore the outdoors through fishing, hiking, scavenger hunts, and more. There will also be swim days and field trips weekly. A field trip list is available here.
Camp counselors are mature and enthusiastic high school students, college students, and adults who provide a noncompetitive environment for children to relax, have fun, and be kids. Most of our counselors have been with the Park District and the camp program for a number of years.
The youngest age for Camp ECHO is 5 years old and the camper must be entering kindergarten in the fall. If your child is younger than 5 years old, or is 5 years old and not entering kindergarten, please consider Sunshine Camp.
Attend six or more full week sessions of camp per child to receive a $25 Park District gift certificate. Multi-session rewards can only be earned on full week camps.
Same great camp for families who are looking for only a couple of days of camp each week. Flex Camp is offered on Monday and Wednesday only.
