Summer 2016 Begins!


Echo Lake Family Camp began last Saturday and is off and running with 80 degree sunshine and amazingly beautiful days!

This year’s staff is AMAZING! A great balance of long time staff leaders and some great, new people just starting their staff experience – and everyone is having a blast together. They carry the Camp Spirit and traditions so seamlessly into the summer time. This bodes perfectly well for our future.

Camp was almost completely filled the first week, and the rest of the summer has only a few spots open – which is great testimony to a fantastic job by Craig and the City Staff, as well as our camping community that loves to be at Family Camp!

In my conversations, I was SO excited to see returning 1st week families, as well as a majority of NEW first time families! They “just moved to Berkeley”, “just heard about the camp”, “found it online”, “neighbors told them about it”, etc… all just starting, just beginning their own family camping traditions, and having a great time! With young kids as well as grandparents in tow!It felt like a birth. A new beginning. It filled my heart.

A great beginning to the summer….. congrats to Craig and his staff!
