Wednesday, August 3, to Saturday, August 6
$500 / $450 for current Walden families
Walden’s Mini-Mini Session is available to campers who will be entering 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades in the fall of 2016.** This two-day, three-night introduction to camp life will allow your child to try-out the Walden Way—from eating in the Mess Hall and sleeping in a cabin, to sampling fun new activities and getting a “lay of the land.” Mini-Mini Session campers will follow a special program guided by experienced counselors. They’ll also participate in camp events with the rest of our Second Session campers. 

Mini-Mini Session campers meet our Walden bus in downtown Cheboygan for the 10-minute bus ride to camp; parents pick up at camp on Saturday. The Mini-Mini Session is the perfect opportunity for your child (and you!) to test the waters of a summer-camp experience. Participating families will receive a $100 credit toward the 2017 season.
