" Hayground gives you confidence, more then any other skill someone can teach you that will help you the most. "

" Hayground has an amazing way of teaching life, and I think it’s extremely important to get that fundamental block when you’re young. I’m so glad I did."

" Hayground prepared me by making sure that I was ready to enter a new environment. The senior projects help because in high school you do a lot of research projects so this helps our writing, researching and ability to handle criticism. "

" I will be completely honest about Hayground. I learned to live. I learned to look at the world in a different light, in a unfiltered and unbiased light. And without the life skills I learned from being a Haygrounder I wouldn¹t be who I am today. "

" One thing Hayground is very good at is giving kids the confidence and the belief that they can honestly do anything they want as long as the put their effort and try their hardest, and I know that sounds so cliché but is sincerely true. "

" What I remember most about Hayground was the family, the support, the progress and being proud of the things I had learned. "

“I will always and forever have a place in my heart for the wonderful place that Hayground is. It has made me the person I am today.”
