Our Walden long weekend is designed to introduce overnight camp to campers who have recently completed Grade 1, and are ready for a brief taste of overnight camp life! We want to give campers the opportunity to see all that Camp Walden has to offer; waterfront activities on our private lake, sports activities galore and accommodations in our spacious cabins.
We also want our Walden long weekend campers to spend quality time with our incredible staff, playing and creating memories with our existing campers. This unique opportunity will have your day camp camper ready for our incredible overnight camp experience. Join us this August long weekend for an adventure your camper won’t ever forget!
Walden stretches over 750 acres of exceptional beauty in Eastern Ontario. Our private lakes surrounded by vibrant woodland create an exquisite setting for the celebration of summer.
All Walden campers sleep in spacious, well-ventilated cabins. There is ample room for each camper’s belongings. The cabins blend in with to Walden setting – the perfect backdrop for making camp memories.
All Walden Long Weekend campers will be living together with each other in otherwise empty camper cabins.
The Walden Long Weekend fee is $600 + HST (per camper) and include the following:
Campers attending our Walden Long Weekend will have the opportunity to experience EVERYTHING that Camp Walden has to offer. The weekend includes several Camp Wide Programs. We have certainly taken into consideration the weather – we have prepared a “rainy day” schedule just in case!
Toiletries and sundry items
The “Maybes” – you are allowed to pack these items if you like.
And here are a few tips when packing for camp:
Our MASH Staff remind you that all medications sent to camp should be sent in their original containers with their original labels and sent to camp with the bus counsellor on the first day of camp. Please pack all medications in a sealed container with appropriate instructions and hand it to the counsellor on your child’s bus at departure. Please make sure to include an ample supply. We are pleased to expend all efforts caring for your children when they are away from home – please keep us well informed by using this process for even the most simple of medications. Families of campers who wear eye-glasses or contact lenses are encouraged to send an extra pair of eye-glasses via Bus Mail to ensure that there is always a spare pair kept safe and clean.
Money at camp
Camp Walden is one of the few camps that includes the cost of all aspects of the program in its initial fees. Your payment of our fees is what allows us to provide programs to all our campers. Please do not send cash to camp.
The bus ride is often a time for campers to make new friends and/or reacquaint with old ones. For reluctant or first time campers, the bus ride can often serve as a valuable “transition time”. Our skilled bus counsellors spend time with each of our campers on the bus to ensure that they are prepared and comfortable for their arrival at camp. Our mandate is to provide a safe, enjoyable, and efficient trip to and from camp for all of our campers. Please find below all the specific transportation information you will need to assist your camper in travelling to and from camp.
