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.
