    Camp Walden is a co-ed overnight camp offering everything under the sun for summertime fun! From athletics, to arts, to aquatics, to adventure, Walden has it all. Fun is at the heart of a Walden summer and we incorporate it into all we do.  Walden is a family, and being part of our family means having a summer home where you can live, laugh, learn, and have more fun than you ever imagined possible!

    Creating magical summers for amazing campers is what Walden is all about.  At Walden, we make sure every camper feels included in our warm, nurturing community. Since 1931, Camp Walden has given campers a unique opportunity to experience the pure joy of summertime fun and friendship. Walden is a down-to-earth, well-grounded camp. We pride ourselves on creating a safe environment where children are supported as they play and grow together. Our beautiful Adirondack campgrounds have an inviting, natural feel. This offers the perfect setting for summertime adventures. Walden has all of the programs and activities of a large camp, yet is small enough that everyone knows each other. Welcome back to summer as it was always meant to be – welcome to Walden!

    Our exceptional programs and facilities, including ourstunning spring-fed lake, give campers endless opportunities to grow their confidence and skills. Walden’s highly experienced specialists work with campers to promote skill-building, teamwork, friendship, and fun. At Walden we constantly encourage campers to take on challenges, explore new interests, and develop talents. A summer of fun, a lifetime of memories, at Walden you can do it!

     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.
