At Echo Valley, campers can expect to try new things—everything from rappelling steep limestone bluffs to swimming in natural spring-fed waters to country dancing. They might ride in the back of a pick-up on dirt roads in an unbelievably beautiful part of Texas. They might see more stars than they have ever seen. All along the way, they can expect to learn about God and discover ways to grow in their faith.
Echo Valley hosts around 200 campers each session and the average cabin size is about 14 campers per cabin. The counselors are at the core of the camp experience (with an average of four in each cabin) as they lead their campers through all aspects of camp. We work hard to hire the right people. To have a fun camp, we hire fun people. To help campers deepen their faith, we hire folks deeply committed in their own faith and who are geared toward ministry. To help campers grow and thrive, we find folks with the personal and spiritual maturity to be role models to our campers.
Echo Valley is located on an enormous bend in the Frio River about a mile and a half downstream from Singing Hills, and, yes, you have to drive in the river to get there. All we need is located right on our peninsula—ropes courses, guys’ and girls’ cabins, athletic fields, basketball and volleyball courts, zip lines, a Ranch House (dining hall), the Sugar Shack (camp store), a rodeo arena, and, of course, the clean, cool Frio River to play in.
