Echo Valley faces the beautiful cliffside of Echo Bluff, where lush vegetation shades one of the most idyllic swimming holes in Texas. The camp is one of our most historic, established in 1954 when the Butt Family first bought the Wolfe Ranch to provide a place where young people who might not otherwise be able to afford it could have a first class camping experience. In 1967, Echo Valley hosted its first summer camp for Laity Lodge. Today, this historic campsite is shared between three programs—H. E. Butt Foundation Camp, Laity Lodge Youth Camp, and Outdoor School.
