Senior Camp

Senior Camp

Senior campers are nine to twelve years of age.
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, and the great outdoors in each day. We will spend lots of time outside in nature, on walks, in the forest and on the farm.
