Echo Adventure Camp is a seven day, six night residential camp for students that enjoy being outdoors. While participating in exciting outdoor challenges, campers will explore natural ecosystems, develop outdoor skills, and gain self-confidence and independence. In addition to fishing, crabbing, archery and camp crafts, campers will participate in a three night offsite tent camping trip which features hiking, meal preparation, camp games, and much more! Our trained lifeguards will direct water safety instruction and canoeing skills as well as lead a river tubing adventure!
Who Can Participate
All Outdoor Education camps are open to any student who has an interest in the environment, making new friends, adventure, and personal growth.
Lauren Jenkins and Jessica Lechert, Arlington Echo Outdoor Educators, will direct the camp.
