Colt Camp (ages 7-9)
This energetic bunch arrives on Monday morning and leave mid-day on Thursday. Puppets, silly songs, trail rides, and pedal go-carts are just a few of the activities designed for these young kids. Our counselors take on the role of parent and do their very best to keep tabs as we cater to kids who may have never been away from home.
Echo Ranch is a whole new world and even a walk to the beach can result in some exciting surprises. Who knew that searching through tide pools could be so much fun? On our last night of camp the gym is converted into our Colt Camp carnival! We have a giant bounce house, cotton candy machine, hot popcorn, and campers play games for tickets to exchange for prizes.

Echo Ranch is located 40 miles north of Juneau. The highway stops at Echo Cove and our camp sits 2 miles around the shoreline along side Point Bridget State Park and Berners Bay. Visitors and Campers must walk. Be prepared to make the walk along the shore by wearing hiking shoes or rubber boots. If you are unable to walk around the cove for medical reasons please contact us so that we can make special arrangements.
Because of our location we must generate our own power. The generator runs 24 hours a day and provides energy to the main buildings at base camp. CABINS DO NOT HAVE ELECTRICITY. All of the cabins contain a wood stove to help provide heat. Please remember to bring a flashlight. If you happen to need power for a medical reason, please let us know.
We have two bathhouses, one for the girls and one for the boys. The bathhouses have hot and cold running water, toilets, showers, and sinks. Please bring your own toiletry items. There are also outhouses located around camp.
We have a gym, dining hall, chapel, sports field, canoeing, mini-golf, and horse barn to name a few points of interest.
Meals are served at our dining hall three times a day. 5 minutes before each meal our siren will ring and the siren will ring again indicating the meal is ready. After each meal the staff will clean the tables and the floors.
