The resounding life of abiding in Jesus

Echo is a two week camp experience for students entering 9th–12th grades dedicated to helping them discover what it means to live the resounding life of abiding in Jesus. During the program students will be a vital part of an authentic community focused on two key areas: practicing classic spiritual disciplines and serving alongside one another all with the goal of knowing Jesus at a deeper level. Students will explore what it means to live out their faith in a tangible way on a daily basis as they discover rhythms of encountering Jesus that will leave a lasting impact. Echo is an opportunity for students to explore what Jesus declares in John 15, “…apart from me you can do nothing.”


Kidder Creek Echo
  • Students will practice classic spiritual disciplines such as prayer, solitude and silence, service and simplicity.
  • Students will live together in an authentic, loving and transformational Biblical community of approximately 14 students.
  • Students will serve Kidder Creek Camps through the practice of quiet, humble and others-centered service in areas like food service, maintenance, and housekeeping.
  • Students will experience the impact that abiding in Jesus has on their identity through the study of Scripture.
  • Students will be prepared to live a life of abiding in Jesus beyond the camp experience.



Besides a great waterfront, the Kidder Creek pond features the Aqua Glide which has a
climbing wall and slide, as well as an adjacent athletic field.

Whitewater Rafting

Heart pounding class III and IV rapids on the Klamath River will thrill seasoned rafters and beginners alike. Camping on the river, cliff jumping, and the whirlpool are sure to be unforgettable! 

Outback Challenge High Ropes Course

Our most challenging high ropes experience features seven individual elements up to 35 feet off of the ground.

Adventure Ridge High Ropes Course

Bond with your cabinmates and friends on a high ropes adventure. Once you’re in the trees, you’ll traverse with your partner through nine different elements without coming down in between.

Pond Time

During the heat of the day, the coolest place to be is at Kidder Creek’s pond. Between the waterslide and our famous Aquaglide, the pond offers something for everyone.

Horseback Ride

Saddle up for an hour long trail ride through the trees around camp. Our trained Wranglers will guide you through the basics of horsemanship and western riding before you hit the trail.

Natural Waterfalls

You’ll feel like you’ve entered another world as you hike to a stunning waterfall where you can swim beneath the flow and even jump through the downpour.
