In 2020, EcoCamp, will enter its 15th year and is one of the ERC’s longest running youth programs. Each summer, the ERC offers two overnight EcoCamps: one for rising 5th-6th grade students and and one for rising 7th-9th grade students. Both of these camps take place at the Galena Lodge yurts, 23 miles north of Ketchum, sandwiched between the Boulder Mountains and Smoky Mountains.
