About Camp Bob Waldorf
Camp Bob Waldorf on the Max Straus Campus is a residential camp for campers ages 9-15 that fosters growth and development in a fun, safe and nurturing environment. Our program is built upon four core values, or the four pillars of camp: Inclusion, Community, Identity, and Respect. While at camp, campers live out these values in their daily lives through interactions with other campers, learning new skills and making lasting memories.
Campers live in a cabin with their peers, and two to three trained counselors, and spend the majority of their day experiencing exciting new camp activities together. Camp activities include swimming, archery, a high ropes course, a climbing wall, hiking, cooking, ranch animal care, arts and crafts and so much more! Through these activities and interactions, our campers learn to be responsible and thoughtful individuals.
We also offer two specialized sessions for campers ages 12-15, Teen Camp and Camp Bob Waldorf Explorations. Each program aims to provide campers with a new experience, catered to their interests and specific age group. Teen Camp, for 14 and 15 year olds, focuses on teaching values such as social action and offers leadership skills and community service opportunities, interspersed with typical camp activities. Camp Bob Waldorf Explorations, for 12 – 15 year olds, offers an opportunity to learn new skills in a specific area of interest. Campers will choose from core programs such as farm-to-table cooking, outdoor adventure, performing arts, and technology, and will spend the majority of their time at camp learning and growing within these tracks.
