Awesome Adventure!Outdoor Adventure Activities at Camp Walden Summer Overnight Camp in the Adirondacks

Embracing New Challenges and Summer Camp Adventures

Scale the climbing wall… Conquer the ropes course… Bike down a mountain … Cook over an open fire… you can do it all at Camp Walden! Walden’s Outdoor Adventure Program provides an ideal mix of safe, innovative thrills and traditional outdoor experiences. Through these activities, campers develop a spirit for adventure and an appreciation for the natural environment. Campers thrive as they get back to nature with campfires, hiking, archery, and mountain biking. They gain self-confidence as they surmount the climbing wall and zip-line. They become part of a team by partnering with campers and staff to triumph over our challenging ropes course elements.

Embracing New Challenges and Summer Camp Adventures

Campers then apply their team-building skills during our awesome overnight camping trips! Campers boat to our private island on Trout Lake. There they have tons of fun cooking their own food, enjoying songs and snacks around the campfire, and playing adventure games. When it’s time for bed, campers sleep comfortably in family-sized tents with their counselors and bunkmates. Walden also provides optional hiking, rafting, mountain biking, and canoe trips for those who crave even more adventure. And, we do it all within the breathtaking setting of the Adirondack Mountains!
