Junior Camp

Junior Camp

Junior campers are seven to eight years of age. Each week the children will be busy discovering themes with teachers who will offer their skills to the children.  One week will feature creating toys from  objects found in nature; another will involve cooking outdoors and yet another will be a fun-filled week of activities all in French!  Watch for new postings over the next few weeks to see what else we will have to offer.

We will work with healthy daily rhythms, similar to those used in Waldorf schools, that help create an ideal environment for learning. There will be time for focused activity, imaginative play, games, songs and stories in each day.  We will spend lots of time outside in nature, on walks, or in the forest.
