Years at Echo Hill: 3 summers as a camper and 1 summer as a counselor
Going to Echo Hill every summer has been the highlight of my year for the past four years. It's the place where I'm at my happiest and most secure. As a camper, it gave me an opportunity to be independent for the first time away from home in a completely safe environment, and I was able to develop and grow into a more confident and responsible person. Working as a counselor for the first time allowed me to experience camp through a different lens and to pass on to my campers the lessons and experiences my own counselors gave me.
