Grades 6 - 10
Echo Valley is relaxed adventure, Texas river style, where campers become young adults. Activities get a high adventure upgrade—wild dance parties, Alpine Tower, Goliath, rock climbing and rappelling. But you also have tons of down time to hang out with your friends at the waterfront, on the courts, or just about anywhere. Guys go deep with MOG. Girls discover what it means to be Rooted. All of us will grow closer to God and to each other. You’ll find the freedom and excitement of camp, right alongside joy, peace, and reflection about your purpose in life.
Day in the Life of CamperNo two days are exactly the same. We strive to be unpredictable and spontaneous, but the schedule below gives you our starting point.
9:00 – BreakfastThat’s right. We don’t get up early at LLYC.
9:45 – Morning TimeBoy and girls split for morning devotional and quiet time. The Guys’ time is called MOG (Men of God) & the Girls’ time is called Rooted (coming from Ephesians 3:17-19).
10:30 – Cabin Clean UpOften referred to as “chores” by campers, daily small tasks take place to keep the cabin sanitary such as sweeping, cleaning sinks, organizing shoes on the porch, etc.
11:00 – First ActivityCampers sign up for two activities per week at the beginning of each week.
11:50 – Sugar ShackCampers have free time to enjoy snacks at our camp store.

4:00 – Frio FiestaTime for all of camp to be down by the waterfront, either swimming or just hanging out.
5:15 – Cabin Activity or Free TimeCabin counselors plan a fun activity for the entire cabin (e.g., go to Rockslide, hiking, etc.).
