Not your average summer camp.

We think summer camps should be innovative, fun and different. They should challenge and engage your child both creatively and academically. Camp Walden provides the total package in an exciting, seven-week experience packed with programs ranging from Video Game Design, Spanish, Art, Coding, Futsal, Drama and more.

Participants are NOT limited to Walden students, and we encourage your children to invite a friend. Sessions have limited space and we expect our sessions to fill quickly. Be sure to reserve a spot for your child today!
