Summer Camp

Thank You for Making TWS Summer Camp 2018 a Success!

Check Back Here in February for Information on TWS Summer Camp 2019!

Located in the Thornhill Woods neighbourhood in Vaughan, we offer 20 acres of green space, just a short drive from Richmond Hill, Markham, Aurora, Woodbridge and North York.

Our camp is consistent with the principles of Waldorf education and provides a balanced experience of doing, feeling and thinking in a way that stimulates fun, creativity and a sense of well-being.

Primary (ages 4 to 6) Campers will enjoy a harmonious environment where rhythm and structure encourage opportunities for free play and artistic activities.

Junior (ages 7 to 8) and Senior Campers (ages 9 to 12) will love our weekly themes, including drama, puppetry, crafts, woodwork, games, pottery, sports, outdoor cooking and more!

  • Our camp staff are trained and experienced Waldorf teachers, Waldorf alumni/ae and students.
  • Each day includes healthy snacks and lunches made from organic ingredients where possible.
  • It is a place where friendships blossom and well-being is nourished. It’s the way summer should be!
  • Our summer camp is open to both current Waldorf students and non-Waldorf students

Primary (4-6 years old)

Each week the primary campers will be busy discovering a different nature theme. Primary camp will model the gentle rhythm of our kindergartens that so lovingly nourish the child’s developing coordination, cooperationand creativity.

Each day will be a calm and joyful journey through imaginative play, circle games, songs and stories. Part of each day will be spent outside in nature, on walks, or in the forest.

Leader to Camper ratio is 1:8.
