Walden provides bus service to camp from Detroit, Chicago and Cleveland for First Session; and Detroit and Chicago for Second Session. We also offer return transportation from camp to the Detroit area at the end of the two-week sessions. Buses feature HEPA filtered air-conditioning and bathrooms.

Families may drop off campers at camp, on our main Athletic Field. Parents are not allowed any further onto camp grounds except on the last days of First and Second Sessions: Saturdays, July 16 and August 6. Families picking up on July 2 and July 30 will meet their campers on our Athletic Field.


Our three-night “rookie camp” provides an introduction to Walden for rising 1st-3rd graders. These campers live in cabins of no more than seven children with three counselors. Walden staff accompany Mini Mini campers to their A-B activities, which they choose prior to their arrival. Mini Mini campers eat their meals in the Mess Hall with the rest of camp* and may participate in some regular Evening Programs and Special Day events, too. Walden does not provide transportation to or from the Mini Mini Session; our staff meet families in Cheboygan for drop-off and for pick up also. Space is limited!
