Echo Overnight Camp


Ages 13-16 / 9 Days

Nine days can change your perspective, change your attitude, and change your life forever. For hundreds of teens, Echo has been life-changing. With a focus on outdoor high adventure, teamwork, and community service, Echo offers an experience that your teen will remember forever. Our unique camp provides unlimited opportunities for teens to learn, grow, and be a part of a 30-year tradition of excellence and experience.

Oh, The Adventures We Take…

Echo campers participate in an amazing variety of activities scheduled throughout their session. Some are high adventure, some are designed to team build, and some are meant to require leadership, but all are crafted to bring out the best in our campers and instill the qualities of a great leader.

What happens when you take a camp of teenagers to the wilds of Central Texas, surround them with limitless adventure, the opportunity to do courageous things, and give them a chance to make a difference in the lives of others? What happens is truly amazing.

Located near Rocksprings, Texas at Camp Eagle, Echo provides teens ages 13-16 a chance to realize that life is limitless and the opportunity to impact it can be even more.

Echo Campers will be divided into two camps:

  1. Donoma: Boys and Girls Ages 13-14
  2. Miakoda: Boys and Girls Ages 15-16

Each ‘Camp’ will participate in its adventures and activities during the day with its select camp staff. This will allow us to better facilitate a more defined and purposeful program by age. In the evening both camps will come together for new special events and parties. In addition, both camps will eat all their meals together. When registering for Echo, please select your Echo age group as well as gender. Please select the age your child will be during camp.


All meals are served ‘Family Style’, are delicious, and made from scratch, and our campers love them. We are happy to make accommodations for food allergies or dietary restrictions. Just let us know – we’ll make it happen!


Our cabins at Safari are super comfortable with in-cabin restrooms and showers, air conditioning, and plenty of room. Let’s just say we’re roughing it in style.

Your Ride

Transportation to and from camp from Houston, Dallas, and Austin is included in your camp tuition. We travel on full-size luxury buses equipped with air conditioning, restrooms, and onboard entertainment. Part of the Kidventure experience is the bus ride up and back!

Your Camp Shirt

Each summer we design a unique Overnight Camp shirt. The Overnight Camp Shirt is included in your tuition and given to your camper at camp.

Overnight Camp FAQs

At Kidventure, we focus on 4 Cornerstones to help promote a well-rounded camper: Creativity, Exploration, Physical Activity, and Reflection. Every activity, game, and event we schedule focuses on one or more of these areas. Depending on the program, you can expect your camper to rotate between activities every 30-45 minutes and engage in age-appropriate activities, including centers, art, camp games, and self-reflection. Throughout the week, LEADS will participate in archery tag, rock climbing, service projects, and field trips; Explorers will participate in archery tag, team building activities, rock climbing, and field trips; and Discoverers will participate in archery tag, rock climbing, and KV Live (where we bring the field trip to the site!).

Safari is a shorter term consisting of six days. Quest is longer at nine days. Both are designed for campers ages 8-12 and both have a similar format and objective. Quest involves a little more ‘high adventure’ than Safari and takes place at our camp in Rocksprings. Safari takes place at Mo-Ranch.

For Safari, campers stay in boy’s or girl’s dorms. These dorms are air-conditioned, bunk bed style lodging. Restroom and Shower facilities are located within the dorms. In addition, all bedding and bath towels are provided at Safari. For Quest and Echo, campers stay in separate boys and girls’ air-conditioned cabins with restroom and shower facilities. Campers must bring their own bedding for Quest and Echo.

Tribes are coed. For Safari and Quest, we divide our campers into four tribes, (Bear, Eagle, Buffalo, and Turtle). These tribes are by age and consist of boys and girls. Tribes are a function of our activities during the day and are separate from cabin assignments. Echo has two tribes, Donoma: Boys and Girls Ages 13-14, and Miakoda: Boys and Girls Ages 15-16.

This includes dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian.

Prior to camp, we will reach out to you to discuss the plan for your child’s medical condition. This might include a medicine dosage schedule or anything else we will need to plan for or scale for.
