About Us

Camp Waldo is a three-week overnight camp on the banks of the Greenbrier River in Summers County. We are located fifteen minutes from Hinton, West Virginia. Camp Waldo is a program of Appalachian Headwaters, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring forests, water and communities in central Appalachia.

Camp Waldo is dedicated to teaching kids about nature and ecological principles. Our goal is to connect kids with the environment through outdoor learning and exploration.

Camp Waldo combines fun, adventure, outdoor exploration, sports, and creative arts in a beautiful and supportive camp setting. Our goal is to connect kids with nature through outdoor learning and exploration while building self-reliance and instilling an ethic of responsibility.

This year, Camp Waldo will hold one three-week overnight summer camp session. We have space for 112 campers this year (both boys and girls). We welcome applications from any children who will be in 4th-7th grade next year.  Click here to apply.

Camp Waldo has incredible facilities. In addition to our beautiful dining hall and restored cabins, we offer several stages, sports fields, a basketball court, archery range, campfire circle, a garden and greenhouse, and miles of forested trails. This year have added several new cabins and a new activity building. Our dining hall has full time staff providing three delicious, hot meals for the entirety of camp.
