Echo Hill 2018

ECHO HILL was an experience some people enjoyed less than others, and some people loved it. There’s a not-so-fine line between Echo Hill and home, and crossing that line is a bold move. But really, let’s venture in depth, on everyone’s opinions on some of the different activities and classes at Echo Hill, and the enjoyment they had to offer. These are opinions from 7th grade students and teachers.


MR.CHAGAN – “Mr. Barry’s favorite class is probably the scanoeing…that’s not my favorite.”

SPENCER KIM – “Falling into the swamps was not fun, and the bugs: not good.”

JAMES PENDRAK – “I did enjoy scanoeing ’cause I’ve always been familiar with canoeing and kayaking and being in a boat and paddling with others and I also thought the fact that there were three canoes combined, I thought that was really cool.”


THEO SCHENK – “Well, I went on the bay and we looked at some crabs and some fish and I lifted up a fish and I lifted up a crab… I liked it.”

DAN O’CONNELL – “It was interesting to find out the whole area–like the whole water shed–was the Chesapeake Bay.”

Overall, Echo Hill was pretty fun in almost everyone’s opinion, and in Dan’s inspirational words, “It was sometimes uncomfortable, but it was fun. I guess I kind of liked it.”
