About McGaw YMCA Camp Echo
Camp Echo is a coed, residential YMCA camp on Long Ryerson Lake near Fremont, Michigan, amidst 512 acres of woodlands and wetlands. Each summer over 1,500 campers of all ages get the Echo experience, some for the first time, some returning as families with children of their own, and everything in between. Spring and Fall bring their own activities too, when we host school and community groups.
Camp Echo’s Adventure Trips are an experience unlike any other: canoeing through thousands of lakes in the Boundary Waters Wilderness Canoe Area, backpacking through the spectacular Porcupine Mountains of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and the list goes on… Camp Echo’s Adventure trips take the fun, community, and growth opportunities (self-confidence, group living, leadership, and technical outdoor skills) of summer camp on the road and expose participants to a whole new world of experiences.
