Camp Echo’s store is known at camp as the Trading Post, or more commonly as the TP. Camp Echo’s Trading Post is open to campers throughout the summer during Fun Swim and Twilight Fun, which are the free times before and after dinner. During Fun Swim, campers are able to buy any non-edible items, such as T-shirts, sunglasses, and other clothes or souvenirs. During Twilight Fun, campers can purchase edible snacks such as ice cream sandwiches or frozen lemonade.
How do campers purchase items?
Your initial TP deposit is made at the time of regstration of $50. We are unable to extend credit to campers that run out of funds, but if your child’s TP account runs low mid-session we will email you and explain how to add it on your CampInTouch account. (Feel free to say no; Campers will learn to budget!)
In the spring parents can adjust the amount in their campers TP account prior to the start of the session to cover the anticipated purchases of their camper – a good budgeting exercise to go through with campers! Edible snacks are only available after dinner and Camp Echo clothing and souvenirs are available at the Trading Post; prices range from $5 to $40. With the initial $50 dollars all campers have the ability to buy anything but not everything from TP.
Do not send money to camp.
How do I add money to my campers Trading Post account?
You can view the balance and add funds to your camper’s account on your CampInTouch account.
Non-routine medical fees are also charged to the camper’s TP account; parents will be notified when these fees are incurred.
Adventure Trip participants do not recieve the automatic $50 charge to set up a TP account as they spend so little time on camp. Parents/gaurdians may set one up if they would like their camper to be able to purchase something if they have time on camp, but that is not gaurenteed. Participants of Adventure Trips can bring cash to camp for spending on the trip. However, Adventure Trip participants do not need to bring any cash, as all expenses are included in the costs of the trip- this includes all snacks during travel ande a group souvenir at the end!
