Make a Donation.

The spirit of giving reflects the treasured ideals of The Main Idea. The camp was the dream of one camp director many years ago. It has now become the passion and mission of everyone who knows what it's like to skip down a dirt road, cozy up next to a campfire, or laugh with a new friend.

As a 501 (c) 3 organization, The Main Idea relies on donations to maintain its viability. The majority of contributions come from the Walden family of alumnae, parents, and friends. Many Waldenites have also acknowledged their special occasions (birthdays, bat mitzvahs, etc.) with a donation to The Main Idea.

We hope you'll consider The Main Idea when you make your charitable donations.
