Creativity, innovation, and self-expression are the main objectives of Echo Hill’s arts programs. Through a variety of media, campers are able to strengthen existing skills and explore new ones with qualified instructors. Our talented art staff encourage campers to explore their skills in both the visual and performing arts.
Arts & Crafts
Our Art Center is overseen by our Art Director. Emphasis is on the experience and the expression of their own creative self for personal growth and enjoyment. Ceramics, beading, dream catchers, watercolors, mosaics and leather crafts are just a few of the projects offered.
Campers create and design bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and various other accessories using techniques such as braiding, beading, and embellishment.
Campers learn the ancient art of pottery in the Ceramics Shop overlooking the Bay. In this activity, campers hand build with clay to create a variety of ceramic projects. Learning to coil and sculpt clay and craft earth into useful bowls, plates, pots, cups and art.
Dance at EHC is high energy and action packed! Campers interested in dance learn from experience counselors and perform a routine once a session.
Camp songs and group singing are part of the Echo Hill spirit. All campers are encouraged to take part in our Music activities, including guitar lessons, Campfire Songs and Camp of Rock!
Every camper has an opportunity to take part in a variety of drama games and improvisational sessions. They can also participate in the production of the camp Play and show off their acting skills to the whole camp when the play is shown as an Evening Activity twice each summer.
