ECHO offers science, stewardship, and design themed day camps during summer break and school vacation.

Set against the backdrop of the bustling Burlington Waterfront, a day at ECHO camp can move from a behind-the-scenes observation of ECHO’s animal care activities to a LEGO engineering challenge. Led by STEM educators, our program adheres to physical distancing guidelines with small groups, extra time outside, and cleaning protocols. Please note: Masks are required.

Camp Staff

Our stellar camp team is composed of year-round ECHO educators, seasonal staff with backgrounds in science and education, and members of ECHO’s teen leadership program. We believe the intimate, responsive atmosphere of our camps is what makes ECHO Camps a truly engaging experience. Therefore, we ensure a low instructor-to-child ratio of approximately 1:6. Past guest instructors have included scientists from UVM’s Rubenstein Ecosystem Science Lab, members of ECHO’s animal care team, and robotic engineers from Greensea Systems Inc.
