What Our Families Say

“The feeling of “home” that is cultivated at CEL is amazing.There is so much care that goes into all the decisions that are made and the overall concern for each and every child is evident in those decisions. It’s a magical place.”

- Camp Parent

“Echo Lake has helped our children grow in character and experience joy on so many levels in ways that our family couldn’t accomplish at home.”

- Camp Parent

“CEL offers a perfect balance of strong athletics, relationship building, and human development with a focus on compassion. These values support personal development, growth, and independence.”

- Camp Parent

“A great deal of time and effort is put into understanding and respecting the whole child — by adults and peers. Echo Lake is my child’s life blood. He absolutely lives for the seven weeks he has at camp. From the minute we chose Echo Lake, we have never once been disappointed. It has shaped our child into a wonderful teen.”

- Camp Parent

“CEL is an incredibly thoughtful and developmentally appropriate program that is expertly executed in every sense. It is a very special place run by caring and expert directors and staff. The camp will know and love your child and he or she will have the opportunity to grow and thrive in such a community.”

- Camp Parent

“We love the values that are taught at camp. They align perfectly to what we try and teach at home. Independence, learning how to relate to others, self-reliance, interpersonal interaction, and trying new things.”

- Camp Parent

“CEL has a strong emphasis on inclusive groups where everyone is encouraged to be themselves. Its a great camp and I feel safe sending my kids for the summer knowing they are well looked after and having fun.”
