TSA Summer Camps

For nearly 100 years, thousands of children from low-income families have enjoyed fresh air, exercise and the chance to make new friendships during the annual summer camp program at Echo Grove. The camping experience is more than just a pleasant vacation. Children learn new skills and self-reliance; trained counselors who understand their emotional needs and problems help them to mature. A few weeks at Echo Grove can mean a lifetime of impact for a kid who needs to be lifted up and encouraged.


While at Echo Grove, campers participate in a wide range of activities, including swimming instruction, Adventure Corps and Scouting, arts and crafts, music instruction, Christian education and much more.
