Graphic says "ECHO Camps, Seeking Imagineers" and has a photo from past camps: kid using dropper to drop color on clouds, a kid with headphones, a kid dropping a contraption over the edge of the outside deck.

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.
