For over 20 years ECC has run the City Camp Program in Providence - a free day camp for children aged 6-12. Last year we expanded our program to include Woonsocket, and we are offering high school campers the opportunity to take on new leadership in the program. Campers who participate in this program will stay at ECC, and leave the property each morning to travel to St. James Church in Woonsocket. There they will be assigned to work with a small group of campers as part of the City Camp Woonsocket program. The program will include daily field trips around the state. This is an incredible opportunity for high school campers to experience the City Camp program, to grow and learn about their own leadership potential, and to make an incredible impact in the lives of our City Camp Woonsocket campers. See a video about our City Camp Woonsocket program to learn more.

Summer's End Camp

For people entering grades 7-12
We end the summer in the best possible way - joining our City Camp program with the program at ECC! ECC campers spend the week planning a special block party, and welcome the City Camp Providence session to participate the last full day of the week. This camp gives campers a chance to express their creativity, provide a great experience for a different set of campers, and make friendships with ECC's partner program.
For years young people have come to ECC to find meaningful experiences and friendships.
Each year at Jr/Sr Conference our week ends with a special Gospel service that our campers and staff work to create together. Counselors provide the sermon with stories about their time at ECC, and how their experience at this camp has changed their lives.
Bridge Camp is one of the great sessions we offer in the summer, and allows high school students the opportunity to spend a short week with campers with special needs. This magical camp connects people in new and wonderful ways, and a great time is had by all present.
Camps for Children
These camps provide our campers with the opportunity to take part in swimming, crafts, activities, and chapel. Fun evening programs keep them happy and engaged. Our summer staff is on hand to supervise and care for children around the clock.
At our teen camps our campers have a little more autonomy, and take part in different activities depending on the program. Each morning our campers help with work projects, caring for the property and helping them have a sense of stewardship and responsibility. In the afternoon we offer different programs that lead to laughter, learning, and fun.
