Summer Program

Walden’s Summer Program is taking a break during the summer of 2019. Check back next year to see what is planned for the summer of 2020.

On this page you will find an example of  themes and activities for Walden’s Summer Program. Our goal is to offer a fun and lively program with lots of opportunities for individual creativity and group game playing within a relaxed, (mostly) outdoor setting.
