What Walden Means to Me…

  • Never have I seen such an amazingly thorough, enlightening, and fun learning situation as I experienced at Walden.

    – Jennifer Higdon, composer

Thoughts from a YMP Parent

The genius of Walden is the celebration of process, which means you can never fail. Wonderful things happen to creative young people when they are safe to experiment, when their friends support their efforts, and when the end goal is expansive thinking. My daughter is excited, challenged, and deeply affected by her Walden experience each summer. She would like to freeze time so she never graduates, so she can always return to her people, to this community that has nurtured her spirit so well.
