Leadership. Team-Building. Service. Adventure.
The Echo Corps builds off the strengths of Camp Echo’s summer teen programs, where participants will grow as leaders at Camp Echo and in the Evanston Community. Participants will meet every other week at McGaw YMCA to develop leadership skills and prepare for trips to Camp Echo. The trips to Camp Echo will be opportunities to experience the “finest camp we know” in new and exciting ways during the fall and spring. These trips will be a time for corps members to come together as a team, have fun, and work on service projects that will leave a lasting impact on Camp Echo for years to come. The Echo Corps will work together to determine the goals and plan the details of the projects.
Echo Corps is a three month commitment that will run October-December. The fall session will consist of four meetings at the McGaw YMCA in Evanston and one weekend trip to Camp Echo, with transportation provided to and from the McGaw YMCA.
Thursday evenings at MetaMedia at the McGaw YMCA (7:30-9:00 PM):
Trip to Camp Echo (Friday evening – Sunday afternoon)
Program Fee: $250* (McGaw YMCA Members)/ $300 (Non-Members)
