Echoing Hills dedicates challenge course

| October 20, 2014

COSHOCTON COUNTY – The Frontier Power Challenge Course at Camp Echoing Hills was officially dedicated and christened Oct. 18, by a group of campers on a respite weekend. Lauren Unger, camp director, was very excited to explain to the group how the course came to be. “Without Frontier Power’s generous donation and many, many hours of volunteer work, you guys wouldn’t be able to use this today,” she said. A team of volunteers from AmeriCorps NCCC and Donald Smith, operations and activities director, put a lot of time into the course’s development. “It took 2,000 man hours just to build this course,” Unger said. The course will help campers learn skills such as group interaction, problem solving, leadership skills, decision making, self-confidence and trust. The course also is available for businesses, schools and organizations to use for team building and personal growth outings. For information about Camp Echoing Hills, visit or call 1-800-419-6513.
