Looking to shift your kids smoothly to overnight camp?
Here are some options to consider:
Together with Camp Robin Hood, we provide families with fun and gradual stepping stones to the overnight camp experience through our joint Home & Away Program — combining the best of the day and overnight experiences into one fantastic program.
Campers who have
completed Grades 2 & 3
Camp Robin Hood’s Day Camp
or Sports Academy
2 weeks at Camp Robin Hood
2 weeks at Camp Walden
One of the many benefits of our Home & Away program is that counsellors who work with your campers at Camp Robin Hood are the same ones that travel to Camp Walden for the overnight component. Home & Away campers bunk with their familiar groups and are supervised jointly by Robin Hood and Walden staff.
Our carefully selected staff; and the excellent training they receive while attending Camp Walden’s pre-camp, makes the transition to being away that much easier for your campers.
Parents also get to join in the fun as they are invited to experience a day at overnight camp by joining us on Visitors Day, just 4 days before their kids return home at the end of July.
Camp Robin Hood is the sister camp to Camp Walden and the starting point for many kids’ first experiences of summer camp. Camp Robin Hood’s directors, Howie and Sari, are the co-owners of Camp Walden along with Sol and his wife, Jen. It makes Walden and Camp Robin Hood part of one big family, and makes your child’s transition to full-fledged overnight camp an easy one.
Camp Robin Hood is where Sol, Walden’s director, began his career as a camp counsellor.
The Walden Long Weekend is designed to introduce Camp Walden to kids who are ready for a little taste of overnight camp life and the opportunity to experience all that Camp Walden has to offer! Campers who have recently completed SK, or grade 1, 2, or 3 will spend quality time with our incredible staff, as well as playing and creating memories with our regular campers.
Campers will also get to have a one-on-one campfire chat with the camp directors—a unique opportunity that will have new campers ready for our incredible overnight camp experience.
This year we have two Walden Long Weekends
We invite all Camp Walden families, alumni, and prospective campers’ families and friends for a chance to enjoy the Walden experience together.
Enjoy meals in our Dining Hall, activities on our private lake, sports activities galore, and our spacious cabins with your family and friends. Included in this memorable weekend will be evening programs, campfires, games and much more! We hope you will join us for a unique weekend combining family time and the fun of summer camp.
