Camp Walden was founded in 1916 by Blanche Hirsch and Clara Altschul, two women from New York who admired Henry David Thoreau and sought to provide city girls with an outdoor camping experience and an appreciation of nature. A graduate of Barnard College, Blanche Hirsch taught mathematics at the Park Avenue School in New York; she later bought the school and renamed it the Alcuin School and served as its head.
Camp Walden opened in 1916 with 30 campers. Hirsch drew up plans for the camp, which had indoor plumbing, and among her many innovations she insisted that campers take overnight trips and sleep outside. In 1940, Helen H. Cohen, niece of Blanche Hirsch, took over as camp director. By 2003 Camp Walden had grown to some 140 campers ranging in age from 9 to 15.
