About Camp Walden

Camp Walden is a traditional, co-ed, residential camp located in Northern Michigan. We are a family-owned camp beginning our 64th year. Walden has an extensive waterfront (canoe, kayak, paddle board, sailing, wakeboard/ski, windsurf), and athletics (tennis, basketball, baseball/softball, archery, soccer, lacrosse, fencing, yoga, dance, fitness). We also have a great arts & crafts space (ceramics, tie-dye, painting/drawing, batik, metal work, sewing, jewelry making, copper enamel, lapidary) theater, media and more. We also have animal care, farm and organic gardening. In addition Walden teaches outdoor education, campcraft and has an extensive tripping program where we take campers to various places in the lower and upper peninsula.
