Camp Echon

It's hard to say what's left of Camp Echon. The camp catered to children and adults with developmental disabilities in at least the late 1970s and early '80s. Not a lot of people currently with the agency know about the camp, but a polaroid photo album documenting 1979-82 was chockfull of memories. A former director remembers having visited the camp with his family but not a lot else. In his memory, the camp acted mostly as respite for parents. The polaroids tell a different story of Camp Echon—one of mudslides, horseback riding, and summers spent in the sun with your friends.
