About Camp Walden
Camp Walden is a family run camp with a 47 year history. A traditional overnight camp for girls and boys, ages 7 – 16, Walden offers the best of both worlds – the classic, loved summer camp of the past, adapted to the needs of today’s children and parents. Campers enjoy a balanced mix of sports, arts & crafts, and music, all in a beautiful lakeside setting.
Camp Walden is located east of Bancroft, Ontario (an approximate 3.5 drive east of Toronto). Stretching out over 750 acres, Walden offers a postcard view of the beauty of Canadian summers. We have two private lakes for swimming, sailing and canoeing, surrounding by woodlands.
Our back to basics approach – screen-free, no phones, no internet – lets campers connect with nature and themselves. Kids have the support of Walden’s unique cabin system, giving campers the security of family and the confidence to make new friendships and develop independence. Most of all Walden campers have fun, making memories to last beyond the summer.
Walden strives for a fun and wide balance of activities, so that there’s something for every camper’s taste and skills. Four 1-hour periods each day take cabin groups through a rotating series of activities, on land and water, while a fifth period allows campers to choose their own activity. Our top facilities and trained counsellors allow campers to develop new skills in sports and the arts.
Some of our activities include: Swimming, waterskiing, wakeboarding, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, inflatables, basketball, baseball, soccer, tennis, football, archery, floor/roller hockey, volleyball, ceramics, arts and crafts, jewellery, music, theatre, fitness, climbing wall, low ropes, zip line, green zone, campcraft, fishing and canoe tripping!
