Camp Walden
At Camp Walden, we believe in the values on which the camp was founded: respect, trust, consideration, and cooperation. These values are embodied in the camp’s long standing Honor System. This guiding principle involves respecting and supporting each other and always trying your best.  The Honor System helps campers cultivate a strong sense of self, independence, and integrity.

Having my daughter spend her summers at Walden like I did is the most special shared experience I could have ever given her. Walden made me a better friend, woman and person, and I see this in my own daughter at the end of every summer when she returns home. Walden's core values have not changed and I feel so fortunate to be able to give my child this experience. Besides being active, having fun and making life long friendships, she is learning to be an independent thinker and compassionate citizen of the world. There is nothing I look forward to more all summer than Visiting Day, when I see my girl and her silly friends and I get to see some of mine as well! The best place on earth with the best staff and people on earth. Walden will always be a huge part of who I am and I can already tell that my daughter will feel the same way!

Camp Walden will always hold a special place in my heart. As a third generation Waldenite, I feel fortunate to share my love for camp with the women in my family. In the warmth of Walden's close-knit community, I gained self-confidence, made lifelong friends, and developed an appreciation for the outdoors. My camp experience undoubtedly influenced my decision to go to college in Maine, and ultimately led me to return to Walden as a counselor for five summers. To this day, when June comes around, there is nothing I want to do more than put on my brown and white, sing camp songs at the top of my lungs, and relive the magic of my days in the Walden woods.

I think about Walden every day. It comes across my mind in a million different ways, for a million different reasons. I can’t seem to shake it, and I hope I never do, because Walden has made me who I am. That means a lot of things, but when I really try to narrow it down, I think the biggest thing that Walden gave me is confidence. It taught me how to trust myself and my abilities, whether it was reciting my lines in my bunk show, or starting a campfire, or getting to the top of a literal mountain (as opposed to a figurative mountain, which I am also confident I can climb). Walden is steeped in tradition, and runs by a code of conduct we call Honor System, which is essentially the golden rule. Every summer the same events take place, from campfire on Sundays, to trips canoeing down rivers and hiking up mountains, to Denmark Fair at the end of the summer. And within the comfort of repetition, girls begin to grow into the strong, smart, independent, collaborative and compassionate women they will one day become. I can’t speak for the experience of attending other camps, and I know that everyone’s experience is beautiful and valuable. But I can say that Walden is the community that has given me the most of my people, and taught me the most about how to be a good person in the world. I’m now a lawyer in Washington, D.C., and I co-host a podcast about summer camp with two of my camp friends (Happy Campers) – and Walden had everything to do with all of those things, and more. I don’t know how to end a testimonial like this, except to say that if you want a camp where your daughter will not only have a great time and meet the best people, but where she will also learn the value of respect, trust, and confidence – then Camp Walden is the one.
“I greatly enjoyed speaking with Laurie (Guide at Maine Camp Experience). Thanks to her guidance, ideas and suggestions we truly feel that our ultimate choice is the right one for us. We can trust that our seven year old daughter will have a wonderful summer!”
