“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!”

Camp ECHO and ECHO Extreme
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 spent outside at the Fel-Pro RRR Conservation Area where children play, exercise, gain independence, learn life skills, make friends, and much more. In addition to arts, crafts, sports, and games, campers will explore the outdoors through fishing, hiking, scavenger hunts, and more. There will also be swim days, theme days, and weekly field trips.
We are looking forward to delivering an outstanding, fun, and safe camp experience for our community and will follow any new COVID-19 guidance. Masks will be optional for camp.
Camp ECHO is for children in grades K – 5th. ECHO Extreme is for teens in grades 6th – 8th. 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 and not entering kindergarten, please consider Sunshine Camp.
