Fireworks at ECHO
July 3rd, ECHO Style
Our Celebrate the Lake event returns this July 3 and we invite everyone to party with us! In addition to the best (rain-proof) seat in town for the Burlington fireworks display, you will have full after-hours access to ECHO and our new Smokey Bear & Woodsy Owl: Home Sweet Home exhibit, face painting, entertainment from a live band and DJ, great food for purchase from SugarSnap, and a cash bar. Bring the family, let the kids explore without worrying about the crowded waterfront, and just have a great time. Tickets are $30 ($25 for members) and just $20 for kids ($15 for members).

Camps Starting Soon

Campers at ECHO Camp
We are thrilled to offer another year of awesome camps – whether your kids are builders, engineers, zoologists, bird lovers, or budding filmmakers, we have something fun for them all summer long. Starting June 22, the weeklong camps will keep your kindergarteners through sixth graders engaged and critically thinking – while having a blast with ECHO staffers. The clock is ticking away, but there is still time to register, so act quickly.

Wacky Wednesdays
return
Cuban Tree Frog
This fun weekly challenge returns to ECHO for the summer starting June 24. Young scientists can participate in a hands-on activity in which we give the experiment and the materials; kids ages 6 and older bring their imaginations. Design, build, and test a prototype solution. The first installment is “Camouflage a Frog” – help a paper critter hide in the outside world! View slides of different frog species blending into their environments then decorate your own.

Working Together

ECHO is proud to be a member of this community and this summer we are so lucky to have an opportunity to collaborate with other organizations. To celebrate Smokey Bear & Woodsy Owl: Home Sweet Home, at ECHO through Sept. 13, we have partnered with Vermont State Parks. Are you a parks camper? If so, bring the special coupon you’ll receive with your camping receipt to ECHO – each person who camps will receive $4 admission. In return, ECHO members can visit the State Parks for a free day trip. We are also happy to welcome the Burlington Fire Department, they joined us for the Smokey opening day event and starting June 12 will be here every other Friday from 10 a.m. until noon to teach about fire safety (and show off their trucks, of course!)

All the best,

Phelan Fretz
Executive Director
