Anonymous New Year's Resolutions

As all of our past and present campers and staff know, a large goal for Camp Echo is to have campers leave with more than they came with. Whether that be learning a new game, finding out a passion that was never discovered before, or conquering an age-old fear, a large part of that encouragement and culture stem from our Echo Values. Reason, Creativity, Commitment, Self-Reliance, Courage, Patience, Cooperation, Reliability, Compassion, and Self-Improvement are the values that make our community such a strong one.

As the new year comes and goes, and people all around the world make New Year’s Resolutions, we asked some of our campers and staff to think about our Echo Values, and with them in mind tell us some of the goals that they have for 2021. Here were some of the most popular answers:
