    Camp is managed by Walden West Outdoor School and skilled staff. Staff bring years of summer camp experience and a passion for the outdoors. Individuals hold certificates in First Aid, CPR, Challenge Course Safety and Lifeguarding and are assisted by experienced volunteer counselors from high schools and colleges, as well as from the ranks of our own former campers. We are a member of the American Camp Association and undergo a thorough accreditation process where we meet or exceed nationally recognized criteria. We value all camper’s experiences and hold ourselves to the highest standards.
