The quality of the Walden experience is second to none. Each camper receives personalized attention from enthusiastic counselors. They also gain expert instruction from passionate specialty staff. Walden athletics are designed to ensure that campers of all levels grow and have a ball playing sports. From beginners to All-Stars, all campers enjoy solid instruction, enthusiastic support, and challenging game play tailored to their skill level and interests.

The Perfect Balance… Group Bonding and Individual Choice

Campers enjoy a balanced schedule that includes group periods and choice periods each day. During group periods, campers participate in group activities that ensure group bonding and a well-rounded summer. Choice periods provide campers a customized Walden experience with more time and instruction in the activities they love most.

On a daily basis, our campers enjoy both Elective and Club Choice periods. Electives are a one day commitment which allow campers to sample a tremendous range of options over the course of the summer. Club Choice offers multi-day experiences for immersion in favorite activities. Our Younger Campers participate in one Elective and one Club Choice each day, while our Older Campers (6th grade and up) have one Elective, one Club Choice, and an additional Daily Option.

Programs for Every Camper

Camp Walden offers both full session and half session options. We also have a two-week program for campers who have completed third grade and under, and who are attending for their first summer. Walden campers who have completed 9th grade can participate in the exciting Walden Teen Program. The Teen Program combines the best of “camper life” with fabulous multi-day trips to locations such as Montreal, Boston, Niagara Falls and Toronto. Our Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Program is an extremely popular full-summer-only program for those who have completed 10th grade. CITs receive extensive training through participating in leadership development workshops. They also have opportunities to grow as they lead daily activities, evening programs, and special events. CITs have tons of fun enjoying their final summer living together as campers. Our CITs also love travelling on an awesome multi-day excursion.
