Extensive space and a million things to do
Camp Echo encompasses nearly 500 acres, the majority of which is undeveloped forest and multi-purpose trails. Campers get the rustic environment and feeling of open space that make Camp Echo such a special place, but they also get multiple facilities for organized activities.
There are 18 traditional camper cabins, 10 small staff cabins (known as Peak cabins), a collection of teen and staff cabins, The Klein Clinic, Judy Rouse Memorial Chapel, Al Butler Memorial Amphiteatre, Jay Johnson Trip Center, an Arts & Crafts building and the Social Lodge.
Choices and more choices
Camp Echo is extremely proud of its various program facilities: high ropes course, low ropes course, team elements course, climbing wall, water skiing area with three ski boats, swimming area with barge, fishing area with two pontoon boats, sailing area, boating and canoeing area with various… boats and canoes (!), ga-ga pits, basketball court, tennis court, bouldering cave, softball field, and more!
At Camp Echo we continuously work to adapt and improve our space . Our goal is to continue to provide the exceptional camping experience that has kept kids coming back for generations.
Camp Echo Master Plan
In 2007, a group of Camp Echo staff, committee members, and alumni, along with the help of outside experts and consultants, spent two days developing a comprehensive Master Plan for the Camp Echo property and facilities. The plan took into account Camp Echo’s current facility needs and opportunities to upgrade out of date buildings to continue improving campers’ experiences for years to come. The document below is the product of the planning weekend.
Some aspects of the 2007 Master Plan have already been completed and some are in the works. The Master Plan is always evolving as the needs of Camp Echo and the Camp Echo community change. Prices shown in this document estimates that are not based on complete plans, and reflect 2007 prices – most have gone up!
