Taproots is Walden’s new nonprofit foundation. Its aim is to provide outdoor learning experiences to children from underserved communities and to expand the racial, ethnic and cultural diversity of our camp family. Taproots will partner with nonprofits to bring groups of children to Walden, as well as serve as the umbrella for scholarships covering camp tuition.

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.
