Mini Mini Session

The 2019 Mini Mini Session for GIRLS is FULL
Please call us to be placed on a waitlist
Sunday-Wednesday, August 4-7
$550 / $500 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 2019. 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 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 on Sunday afternoon for the 10-minute bus ride to camp; parents pick up at camp on Wednesday morning. 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 2020 season. First-time campers only. Campers who have attended a previous Mini-Mini Session are not eligible to attend. Thank you!
