Summer Camp

Thank you for another great year.  Check back in January for information on registration for Summer Camp 2020!

A Word From Our Camp Director:

Hello Parents, Guardians, Campers, and Friends,

My name is Cameron Dickey, and it brings me great joy to continue my work at TWS Summer Camp. With 18 years of experience in day and overnight camps, I can attest to the powerful learning opportunities, individual growth, joy and wonder that blossoms from summer camp and the season itself.

This year our Camp Leads are running a number of new themes like Trashure a week of cardboard creations, Comicbook Creations, PotteryTheatre, and Wood and Wilderness—a woodworking daycamp with an overnight twist midweek. With all these amazing themes, spaces will fill up quickly.  Make sure to register early. We offer an Early Bird Discount, but only until April 30th.

I look forward to making the ninth year of TWS Summer Camp a place where children play outside, get dirty, explore, build amazing things, be themselves, eat healthy delicious food, and most importantly have fun; the way summer should be!

See you in the summer,

Cameron Dickey,

TWS Summer Camp Director

Our Camp:

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!
  • TWS Summer Camp, easily accessible to those in Thornhill, Vaughan, Richmond Hill and the GTA,  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.
