Ages 7-9 (rising 4th graders)
The Explorers will focus on a different theme throughout each week, experienced through a variety of activities and projects taking place in the classroom and outdoors on our playing fields, woods, and pavilion. Following the rhythms of a Waldorf classroom, focused activities will be balanced with free play-time and opportunities to run and play! Campers should bring daily snack and lunch.
Full-day pick up: 3pm
Note: Aftercare options are not currently scheduled, but may be possible if there is sufficient interest – please indicate on your registration if this is something you would use.
Note: Registrations of 2 or more weeks (per camper) will automatically discount camp tuition by 10%.
