Closer to the beach we have the section of our swamp for our campers that like to get deep in the muck, and get VERY wet and muddy! This activity is known as Swamp Mucking! The campers walk through the mucky and muddy waters which climax in cannonball jumps at the mother muck mud pit. This Swamp Mucking area is a testament to the raucous and youthful spirit our camp harbors summer after summer.
Life at Echo Hill is a comfortable rustic. With warm nights and warm days, campers enjoy all facets of life at camp in the great outdoors. This includes sleeping in tents with flaps on all 4 sides allowing campers to sleep among the trees, outdoor showers, and eating our meals in a large screened in dining hall that is open to the fresh air. Campers are free to dress as they like all day, and if you prefer to not wear shoes or flip flops...then barefoot it is.
We are fortunate to have one of the best sunsets on the east coast. Our location on the Maryland Eastern Shore provides gorgeous views over the bay to the west. These views are enough to make any child pause for a moment and reflect on their day, their summer, and all the good things that go with it.
