ECHO Camps occupy that powerful place where passion for science and compassion for the earth meet to create an explosively-rich environment of excitement and learning. We insist that science is fun and that kids who love science, nature, and making things are the most awesome kids around. We love kids who care, kids who imagine, kids who are different, and kids who are quietly brilliant. It is our goal that each of these kids has a transformative experience at ECHO. We offer one-day and week-long science, stewardship, and design themed summer and school vacation camps for children K-6th grade.
Over 30 summer camps for creative kids and teens in acting, singing, dance, radio, film, comedy, puppetry, improv, jazz music, musical theater, and more! Camp themes include Star Wars, Wizards, Pirates, Muppets, Fairy Tales, and many other favorite stories and characters. 13-19-year-olds ready to perform can audition for two summer musicals: Shrek, the Musical and Into the Woods. Professional faculty, ties to Vermont’s premiere stages, and after-camp care for working parents make the Flynn a terrific place to get creative!
