Our 32 camper cabins feature between six and eight bunk beds each, as well as built-in shelves for camper personal belongings. All cabins have electricity and bathrooms with showers, toilets and sinks. Cabins have operable windows, exhaust fans and heaters (for those chilly Up North nights!)
The newest iteration of the Walden Mess Hall is a 2016-2017 remodel that expanded our kitchen workspace, vaulted the ceilings and added six new restrooms. The new Mess Hall features a raised wooden deck overlooking the Meadow.
Walden’s health center stocks over-the-counter medications for basic ailments, as well as examination and first-aid supplies and equipment. Each week, a new doctor resides on-site at Walden. Doctors and Camp Health Officers (CHOs) live in the health center (affectionately still referred to as the Infirmary) and rotate “on-call” every night. Three rooms with multiple beds are reserved for campers who are unwell or simply need to rest. Doctors see campers at a formal “sick call” after breakfast and dinner, and CHOs deliver mealtime medications to campers at the Mess Hall. Walden is a 15-minute drive from the McLaren Northern Michigan-Cheboygan Emergency Room.
Waldmart is located at the back of the office and carries Walden logo items, such as water bottles, teddy bears, magnets, socks, etc. The store is open a few times a week at Twilight, from 7-8 p.m.
