Senior Camp

 

Senior Camp

Senior campers are ten to twelve plus 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.

Week 5 (July 19-23, 2021)

Theme: Capoeira Movement Camp. Ages 10-14

Do your kids have some energy to spare? Come join our Capoeira movements camp. Capoeira (pronounced Kaa-puh-weh-ruh) is an Afro-Brazilian Martial Art form which combines elements of movement, music and culture. During the week, campers will be introduced to fun physical exercises honing body awareness, rhythm, movement and respect for others.

Music plays a central role in Capoeira and is taught organically, in parallel to the movements, often accompanying exercises. This aids in full embodiment of the art form while teaching awareness of their surroundings.

This weeklong camp is aimed at our senior level students and will provide lots of fresh air, movement and immersion into the world of Capoeira.
