Summer Camp Details:

Camps are divided into a younger (Bumble Bees) and older (Rainbow Bugs) group.  The Bumble Bees are ages 3 to 5. The Rainbow Bugs are ages 6 and older.  All children should bring a weekly piece of fruit to share and daily lunch.

Our camps model the daily rhythm of Waldorf Education that includes “in” and “out breaths”.  We will have an “in breath” with a focused activity in the mornings followed by an “out breath” of relaxed free play and fun.  Below are examples of a typical daily and weekly schedule:

Ages 3-5 (Bumble Bees)
9:00AMOutside Play
10:30AmFruit Snack
12:45PMReady for Pickup/Cozy
Ages 6 and Older (Rainbow Bugs)
10:30AMFruit Snack
11:00AMOutside Play
12:45PM Ready for Pickup/Quiet Time

On Wednesdays, the Bumble Bees will enjoy a nature walk on campus while the Rainbow Bugs load up after fruit snack to enjoy a local hike at the Butte or play time at the Mat-Su River Park.  On Fridays, the rainbow Bugs will enjoy their lunch at the Friday Fling while listening to local music.
