For Parents

We know that your child will love Camp Waldo! We have all the tools to provide your child a happy, varied and safe experience at camp, with support from our top-notch leadership staff, counselors, kitchen staff, nurse, and support staff.

Dates and Rates

All campers must be available for the entirety of camp to be accepted.

Camp Waldo will be charging $200.00 per kid once they have been accepted into camp. This amount is less than 10% of the actual cost of camp per camper. Camp Waldo can provide financial support for families that need it. 
If you are interested in helping children attend Camp Waldo, we would be grateful for your support. Please know that donations have no bearing on whether a child is selected for Camp Waldo. Learn more about supporting our camp at www.campwaldo.org/giving/.

Life at Camp

Each camper stays in one of our newly renovated cabins. Each cabin is equipped with two bathrooms and two showers. Every cabin will house two college-aged counselors and up to eight campers. While all of the campers and counselors will have lots of opportunities to interact throughout camp, your child’s cabin group will serve as the camper’s home base, for regular check-ins throughout the day. 

Camp Waldo has an on-site nurse each day and an on-call doctor as part of the team looking out for your child’s well-being. Our newly renovated kitchen will also have full-time staff to prepare three delicious, hot meals each day for the campers and staff.

Typical Day

From the moment our campers wake up until they go to bed we provide them with a day full of action: from swimming in the river, to beekeeping, to working on Camp Waldo’s latest theater production. We strive to give our campers variety on a daily basis, while also providing the necessary support to foster cooperation, confidence, and a strong sense of community at our camp. We also encourage creativity as a means of connecting with and improving the larger world, and increase understanding of, and a responsibility for, the environment.

Here is an example of a day at Camp Waldo:
