Echo Hill Camp is a sleep-away summer camp for 150 children, ages 7-16. We are dedicated to helping kids have a happy, exciting and meaningful experience while they build self-confidence and gain respect for themselves and others in a safe and nurturing environment. We strive to provide an atmosphere conducive to the creative expression of self where a child may seek to acquire new physical and artistic skills.
The imagination and creativity of the children and staff are the only limits to the variety of the program. We offer a wide range of traditional activities which are taught based on each child’s health, safety and individual needs. We hope that we will see you this summer.
Since 1914, Echo Hill Camp has provided generations of campers with a supportive community where their lives are enriched through the friendships they form and the experiences they have at camp.
Campers and staff return to Echo Hill Camp year after year because of the feeling of tradition, community, and belonging that they experience. For many campers, their time at camp is what they look forward to all year long. The fun and the friendships that are built at EHC provide life-long childhood memories for our campers.
Campers gain valuable life skills from their experiences at camp. The independence, perseverance, and confidence they build at camp benefit them beyond camp in all areas of their lives. Through their participation in our structured program of over 20 different non-competitive water sports and traditional camp activities, campers are encouraged to try new things, build their skills, and take risks. The result is improved confidence and a “can do” attitude!
In our beautiful setting on the Chesapeake Bay, at the heart of the Eastern Shore of Maryland, campers have a chance to enjoy a traditional outdoor camp, complete with rustic living and campfires and getting “unplugged.” The break from cell phones, television, computers, and all electronics is one of the things that makes their time at camp so special. Campers have a chance to bond with others, build their social skills, and have fun just being a kid.
