Since 1924, campers have enjoyed the wonders of summer camp on Camp Echo’s incredible peninsula location. “The Peninsula” remains the focal point of our traditional summer camp programs, which support campers to demonstrate improvement in skills needed for successful living.
Traditional Camp offers campers of all gender identities the opportunity to grow both as individuals and as members of their peer group. Cabin groups live, work, and play together, enjoying activities as a group while learning to respect each other’s differences.
From morning reflections to bedtime Taps talks, campers grow in spirit, mind, and body, learning YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility in a supportive setting.
Campers grow personally and learn to enjoy independence in a safe environment, while also working with their cabin mates to develop into a caring and successful group for their time together at Camp Echo.
To learn more about the activities that campers will participate in during Traditional Camp, check out or Camp Activities page.
Updates for summer 2021
- Cabin groups will be smaller than in years past. Likely 6-8 campers and two counselors
- We are excited that campers will have more opportunity than ever before to build strong connections within their cabin by navigating most of the daily schedule as a group
