Summer Camp Details:

We are currently working through our waitlist for summer and fall.  At this time we have a few spots in all groups. Once spots are filled, we will notify those on our waitlist.

Camps are 9am to 1pm Monday thru Friday. Before & aftercare is available. Camps are divided into a younger (The Roots) and older (The Shoots) group. The Roots are ages 3 to 5 and will be in our main pre-school classroom. The Shoots are ages 6 and older and will be in our yurt.

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:

On Wednesdays, the Roots will enjoy a nature walk on campus while the Shoots will load up after fruit snack to enjoy a local hike at one of the MatSu trails or play time at a local park. Other outings will be planned over the summer to correspond with different camps. Fridays, the Shoots will enjoy their lunch at the Friday Fling while listening to local music.
