Family Camp at Echo Lake BELC: 2015_Ranger and Pioneer Hats 

Program Dates: Monday, June 14 – Friday, July 2 

Dear Berkeley Family Campers,

We are excited to offer an incredible variety of programs at Echo Lake Camp in Summer 202! For a full list of Echo Lake Camp programs and supplemental information, please visit the main Echo Lake Camp page. In addition to Family Camp, Summer 2021 programs include six weeks of Youth Camp, our Counselor-In-Training Program, adult (50 & Better) Camp, and private group rentals.  

This summer, Camp will once again be filled with great activities and incredible outdoor opportunities! Our family camp traditions include the green chair circle, quiet hours, canoeing, the staff show, table night, theme days, tie-dye, campfires, and excellent swimming and hiking. Of course, people make up the heart and soul of camp, and some of your favorite BTC staff-- full of Camp Spirit -- will be there to greet you.  And you—the campers—help keep the traditions, customs, and fun alive for generations of Berkeley campers to come.
