Camp Walden campers take a break from swimming

Alums

Welcome back Waldenites!

Since 1916, Walden’s camp family has been growing and expanding past the pine trees of Denmark, Maine. Generations have stayed connected, beyond our Walden sign, through virtual campfires, in-person gatherings, networking events, reunions and more. Whether you were at camp for one summer or seven summers, whether a Brown or Tan, our community is a tight one and we are proud of all our alumni around the world. If you see that EAO magnet on the back of a car, be sure to give them a honk and wave.

The EAO Museum, located on the waterfront next to Arts & Crafts, contains cherished memorabilia from 108 summers of Camp Walden. Campers are invited to stop by anytime to enjoy our collection of Walden photographs, plaques and documents. You will be amazed to learn how over time, camp has both changed and remained the same!


Alum Day 2024

Join us on Saturday, July 27th from 11am- 8pm

Time to dust off those brown and whites and join us for a day filled with laughter, songs and the joy of reuniting with old friends who share a special place in our heart, reliving the magic in the Walden woods. Spend the afternoon cheering for the Brown or Tans at Watersports, grab a paddle and head out on a canoe ride, try those tennis skills on the courts (and check out our new pickleball courts), or have a chit chat on EA Rock for old time sake. After a delicious picnic supper on the landsports field, we will end the day singing together at peace circle with B-12 leading us in campfire. We cannot wait to see you this summer. Please register here.

Please note transportation from Portland will not be provided.

42 years after I spent my first summer at Walden, I still consider it one of the most important experiences of my life. My memories of Walden are filled with fun, laughter, adventure, friendship and tradition.
