On week #9 of our ongoing Camp Spotlight Series (where we profile ACA-Accredited summer camps around New England) we would like to introduce Camp Walden! Since 1916, generations of girls ages 8-15 have spent their summer’s horseback riding, water skiing, sailing, playing tennis and making memories at Camp Walden.

102 years after its founding, Camp Walden is still going strong! A typical day at the 7-week summer camp consists of a structured schedule of breakfast, three activity periods, lunch, rest hour, two more activity periods, dinner and ends with milk and cookies. Each new day at camp, brings fun, new experiences and a lot of singing!


To further foster camper relationships, Camp Walden assigns every new camper an older camper who serves as her “campsister” all summer long. In addition, during a campers second summer, she is assigned an older camper called a “second-mate” who acts as a mentor to provide warmth and extra attention.
