BERKELEY ECHO LAKE YOUTH CAMP REGISTRATION NOW OPEN
Berkeley, California (Thursday, February 10, 2011) - Berkeley Echo Lake Youth Camp is a five-day residential camp located in beautiful South Lake Tahoe. Echo Lake is an exciting and nurturing environment where youth can develop self-confidence, learn teamwork skills and try fun new challenges - all in a beautiful out-of-doors classroom that overlooks the Lake Tahoe Basin.
During the day campers enjoy activities such as swimming, canoeing, sports, arts and crafts, fishing, all-camp games, archery and hiking. In the evenings campers participate in special events like a night hike, campfires, a dance, stargazing, and a talent show. It is our goal for youth to gain a sense of connection to themselves, their friends, and the environment during their stay...and, of course, to have a lot of fun!
Echo Lake Youth Camp runs for six weeks (Monday-Friday), beginning Monday, July 11, and ending Friday, August 26.
Weekly registration fees are $457 for Berkeley residents, and $462 for non-residents.
