Echoing Hills Travel Program

Creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Why Travel?

We believe that travel isn’t just a luxury, but that it empowers individuals and provides a break from daily life, allowing our travelers to replenish and relax. Travel enables our travelers to express their interests and by taking part in activities that they enjoy, they are active participants in their vacation. Travel encourages learning and growth on our trips, travelers take part in tours and hands-on experiences that create lasting memories. We are proud of our trips and believe that everyone deserves a vacation!

Camp Echoing Hills’ travel program offers those with disabilities the opportunity of a lifetime to explore and experience the splendor of God’s creation in ways that could only be imagined before. The program is open to those 18 years or older.

Experienced caregivers provide 24-hour care; trained volunteers join our professional nursing staff on each trip. Individuals might enjoy a Cincinnati Reds game, a Christmas adventure in downtown Pittsburgh, a Music City concert in Nashville, or the beauty of the Alaskan mountains from the deck of a tourist ship.

Places to Explore

We provide high quality vacation opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We ensure a safe environment with an emphasis on inclusion. Our trips promote integration, socialization, friendship, and fun.
