***The Mini Mini Session is designed to give your camper a taste of Walden’s many facets: the activities, traditions, special programs, and cabin life. That’s a lot to pack into only two full days! Mini Mini campers will travel as small groups to activities, including an evening campfire, midday cookout, beach party and meadow games. They will also choose approximately six A/B activities in which to participate (from a menu of about 12). The Mini Mini program maintains a 1:2 staff-to-camper ratio, and counselors are specially chosen by the directors to care for our youngest campers of the summer. Space is limited!

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.
