Come experience the magic of summer at Meadowbrook Waldorf School. Our outdoor summer camp is held for three weeks in July–the perfect time to be outside and exploring our forest and streams. Children ages 4-9 are welcome to attend this program designed to explore the natural world while having fun together. Hiking, baking, painting, singing, climbing–all the summer essentials!

MORE DETAILS
Children will arrive each morning greeted by teachers in our wooded play yard to settle in for the day.  Hiking, cooking, playing, crafting, singing, and joy will fill the morning, working up an appetite for a healthy snack. Children will play with others their own age in thoughtful, creative ways. Lunch and rest will transition everyone into the afternoon hours. Staying cool with continuing creative endeavors will fill the afternoon and the end of the day will sneak up on the children.
Every day will consist of the same rhythm of events, with each event offering new fun. The week’s activities will reflect one of three themes: Kings, Queens and Royal Things, Woodland Animals, and the Magic of the Sea.
This summer camp is for CHILDREN AGES 4-9 and runs FROM JULY 10 – JULY 28 with one week sessions.  CAMP HOURS are 8am to 4pm, Monday-Friday.  Snack will be provided once per day, while parents will pack a healthy lunch and additional snack.

Pricing Information:  The cost of summer camp is $250 per week, per child.  Checks can be made payable to Meadowbrook Waldorf School.  All payments are nonrefundable.
