What happens at ECHO Camp
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. To some outsiders, it might seem that ECHO camps are just an excuse for our staff to hang out with the most interesting children in the Northeast, but insiders know that ECHO camps are a transformative experience that combine inquiry, creativity, and guided discovery to produce one of the most engaging camp experiences in Vermont.
Set against the backdrop of the bustling Burlington Waterfront, a day at ECHO camp can move from an impromptu, behind-the-scenes observation of ECHO's animal care activities to a lakeside game of Turtle Tag to an underwater robot-enabled search for Champ. We love kids who care, kids who imagine, kids who are different, kids who know more than us, and kids who are quietly brilliant.
