Welcome to our summer home on the shores of Long Lake. Since 1959, campers have moved to the Walden neighborhood to explore our woods and meadows. Each camper charts an individual path, but together we find a sense of community in this pristine natural setting. At Walden, your neighbors are the friends in your cabin and the ones you meet in sailing class; they’re your favorite cabin counselor as well as your volleyball instructor. Walden is a place to call home and a neighborhood that calls you home each summer. Come explore with us!

diversity, equity, inclusion

Walden understands that a relevant camp community requires the harmonies of many voices—not only those that inspire, but also those that instruct and challenge. We strive to be a camp where diversity is celebrated and supported, and where each camper and staff member is provided the resources and opportunities to succeed. Our mission of teaching empathy and respect is incomplete if it only serves those who think and look like we do. We believe that our camp can be anyone’s camp, and that our greatest strength lies therein.

Walden is an Equal Opportunity Employer that hires qualified staff regardless of their race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, veteran status or any other basis covered by appropriate law.
