ECHO Camps

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. ECHO offers a selection of exciting week-long science, stewardship, and design themed day camps for children entering 1st to 3rd grade. Led by STEM educators, our program takes full advantage of ECHO’s exhibits and outdoor location next to beautiful Lake Champlain.
