Weekly Themes:

Through story, song and walks in nature we will discover all the green and growing things that abound. Campers will help tend the early childhood herb garden and grow a small herb garden of their own. We will make tea with peppermint and bake bread with rosemary.

In celebration of the summer solstice we will explore the element of fire and light. Children will help build a bonfire, hear tales about fireflies, and explore light and darkness by playing with their shadows and making shadow puppets.

The children will delight in stories and songs about the sea and the creatures that inhabit it. We will build boats to play on both inside and outside and make fishing poles and sew some fish to catch.

The wonder and beauty of the miraculous honeybee will be experienced through movement, stories, and song and we will share the bees’ precious gifts of honey and beeswax. Campers will wet felt a honeybee and model a beehive with beeswax.

"For our whole family, it was a wonderful experience. My child loved his teachers, making new friends, and thrived in the open-ended ended play that camp provides. We are excited to have him back at Waldorf summer camp this year, to experience some simple pleasures of summer, alongside his friends." - Parent Testimonial
