Don't forget to read the Choice Camps Recommendation of Camp Echo!
Team Effortby Anonymous - Former Camper
At Camp Echo, I learned that winning is not the important part; I am my own competition. And everything was a team effort, whether it was on the softball field, on the stage, of in a cabin.
Lasting Friendshipsby Anonymous - Former Camper
Camp was a stage to rehearse my identity... that's where I learned what friendship and love really were. It was safe. It was total acceptance. It was affirming.
A Wonderful Campby Anonymous - Parent of Camper
We were so grateful for Alexandra's wonderful summer. You made sure all her needs were met and you did not make light of any of my reservations- but went to handle everything so expertly that you won my confidence.
Amazingby Anonymous - Parent
First I have to tell you how amazing the photos and newsletters are to see and read. I feel the excitement at home. David told me it is “the best summer of his life”. You can’t ask for more than that. Every Echo parent I have spoken to this summer is so happy with you both and grateful to have such wonderful owners.
Best Summer Ever!by Anonymous - Parent
When we spoke to Jason he said that it was the absolute best summer ever! Jeff, your interaction with the kids is definitely noted and so appreciated. Jason was shocked and so happy that you play sports with the kids and really get involved with them as campers, not just in an authoritative role. He is in his glory this summer!
Thank You!by Anonymous - Parent
We just wanted to take a moment to thank you for everything that you did for our children this past summer. If you could have seen their faces as they ran to us from the bus, you would have smiled with great satisfaction. The whole way home they enlightened us with story after story of funny moments, new things they tried, new friends they made, and lessons they learned.
Feeling of Empowermentby Anonymous - Parent
This whole experience was huge. The whole aspect of separation, for an extended period of time, was so frightening for him. The fact that he made it for the full seven weeks, gave him such a feeling of empowerment.
Loved the Independenceby Anonymous - Parent
She has always loved the independence of being at camp. She feels so comfortable and safe at Camp Echo. This past summer, she said she felt safe doing things that she normally would not try at school. She told me with a grin from ear to ear about the “Above and Beyond” pin that was given to her. You have really helped to raise her level of self confidence.
