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 from mid-June through mid-August. Led by STEM educators, our program takes full advantage of ECHO’s exhibits and outdoor location next to beautiful Lake Champlain.
