Summer Camps

River Valley Waldorf Summer Camps

Summer camp at River Valley Waldorf is filled with lots of creative experiences and fun, mostly outdoors with Forest Camp and Fun in the Sun Camp. The younger children will enjoy crafts, water-play, singing, baking, and puppet stories, while the older ones will spend time adventuring in the woods, cooking in the outdoor kitchen, woodworking, singing, and crafting. Everyone will have time to explore, play, create, and relax. River Valley Waldorf Camp is consistent with child-centered practices and principles of Waldorf education. We look forward to welcoming your children to summer camp, for a fun-centered time, in a Waldorf centered environment.

ACTIVITIES

Campers participate in various activities each day on our beautiful campus. Camp is held primarily outdoors.

Culinary Exploration: Campers engage in ice cream making, enjoying the fruits and vegetables from the school garden when available, and baking bread in the school’s outdoor wood fired oven.

Water-play: Children should bring along a swimsuit for fun in the sprinkler, water balloons, and games. 

Games and Movement: We believe children need to move to learn and the summertime is no different! Some organized sports will be combined with games new and old. Some examples of this are Capture the Flag, Kick the Cone and Red Rover!

Art: We let kids’ imaginations run wild! Campers learn to draw, paint, sculpt—but mainly, have fun with art!

Nature: Direct experiences of nature are constant at River Valley Waldorf School. Children play outside on our natural playground in all weather. Children are encouraged to climb trees, roll in the grass, play in the mud kitchen, and with loose parts are open-ended materials such as boxes, crates, sheets, pipes, log rounds, buckets, blocks and rocks that children can adapt, move, and design are a core part of creative play at camp.

CAMP STAFF

Our staff includes teachers and counselors. We select teachers and counselors who share a love of children and Waldorf education, and who are dedicated to providing them with a fun and inspired summer.
