Waldenites learn and practice their playing skills during activities and apply them during team sports, a friendly rivalry that takes place on the weekends. The Brown and Tan teams play land sports on Saturday and water sports on Sunday. Summer ends with the Marathon –a giant relay race that includes every camper.
The Tan team mascot is a monkey named Tango and the Brown team mascot is Bruno the bear. Each camper is selected to be a member of one of the teams at the beginning of the summer and the team captains create a memorable way to announce team assignments. Team sports always begin with traditional songs that celebrate unity, spirit, and sportsmanship, and cheers for the opposing team.
