Guide To Summer Camps
What we're all about...
Founded in 1959, Camp Walden offers a traditional, all around camping experience that emphasizes having fun, learning new skills, and developing independence and self confidence. Located in beautiful northern Michigan, Walden boasts more than 50 activities, a mature and dedicated staff, and a pristine setting in which kids truly thrive. Campers live in cabin groups of 8 to 12 with three counselors, choose from a wide variety of foods in a modern mess hall, and participate in all camp and smaller group programs that promote spirit, creativity and tradition. The centerpiece of Walden's philosophy is our unique elective program which allows campers to create individual activity schedules.
