This program is for children entering 1st through 6th grade . They stay in a cabin with up to 10 girls or boys and 2 staff members. The cabin will enjoy most activities as a group, including, but not limited to, climbing tower, low challenge course, waterfront activities, arts and crafts, sports and farm life. This program is structured and offers a largely set program with additional opportunities for campers to individually choose activities based on their personal choice. Each day cabin groups will partake in swim practice and free swim which is an opportunity to build on their swimming skills and ability.
An exciting outdoor program for teens entering 7th grade and up. This experience focuses on developing leadership skills, teamwork, trust, commitment, responsibility, and self-awareness. The majority of activities are offered as choices so the program is more youth guided and tailored to meet the interests of the individual teenager. All of the fun camp activities are offered in addition to off site trips such as rock climbing (Fridays - included in the tuition) and skeet shooting (Wednesdays) included in the tuition) and white water rafting and ziplining (Thursdays-for an additional fee). If weather is not cooperating trips will be cancelled. If you would like notification of cancellations, please let us know.
This program is for youth ages 7 to 17 who need additional support. The youth are fully integrated into every aspect of the camp program from cabin living to every activity. The Echo program has a more than 50 year history and is an integral part of our camp program and camp community. Initially the program was targeted towards the inclusion of youth with physical disabilities and has since broadened to incorporate youth with a wide range of developmental disabilities and needs. All youth benefit when they live, laugh and play together. A couple of things to consider: we are not a specialized therapeutic program. We are not able to support youth who are physical towards others or unable to stay with a group. Please contact us prior to registering. Separate application necessary to apply.
