Bronco Camp (ages 10-11)
As campers get a little older we increase the level of freedom and the range of activities we provide. During free time campers are given a list of stations they can visit including the trading post for soda pop and candy. The most exciting development for Bronco campers is the use of our zip line!
Many have been eyeing the zip line for years and now their time has come. Located at the top of a 50ft cliff is where the ride begins. Campers are suited up with a chest and bottom harness connecting to a mainline and a secondary backup line to ensure safety. In the grand tradition of camp we also offer skills classes where kids can learn horsemanship, archery, crafts, or just play field games. There are some other surprises along the way as well for the most exciting week! Your Bronco camper will just have to show up to experience the craziness!

Help improve your stay with us by being aware of those around you at all times. As always, please contact us if you have any questions.
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.
