Madison Waldorf School offers two summer camp programs during 6 one-week sessions providing a wholesome environment with lots of outdoor time, natural play, arts and crafts. Each week is themed around one element: air, earth, fire and water. Each camp is comprised of 12 to 16 campers led by experienced counselors and a Camp Director who oversees the daily running of the camp.
Full Circle Program (3-6 years old)
Our Full Circle Camp is a magical opportunity for younger children as we enjoy the outdoors, take nature walks, bake, and craft. Our daily and weekly rhythm nurtures the younger child. Full Circle Camp offers 3, 4 and 5 half-day and full-day options for each session, with a minimum of three half-days. (Children need to be fully potty trained to attend.)
Camp of the Elements (6-11 year old)
Camp of the Elements campers will swim, hike, garden, craft, make pottery, and more! Each Thursday, we go on a field trip. camp of the Elements offers 3, 4 and 5 full-day options for each weekly session, with a 3-day minimum.
The Weekly Themes:
A fun-filled week of hands-on aviation adventures! We explore the wonders of flight making unique paper airplanes, building wind chimes and learning circus tricks. Come fly with us!
Even in an urban environment, nature is all around us — we just have to look closely! These two weeks are all about exploring places where nature thrives in and around Madison. We will paint, sketch and create works using Mother Nature as inspiration. We will use many different types of material for projects, such as paints, clays, fabrics, natural materials.
We start each day with morning snack over camp fires. We will learn how to build a fire and make our own fire starters. Solar cooking and firing our own pottery will be just a few of the activities. This week is always a favorite; don’t miss out!
We will find out why water is so unique as we celebrate two full weeks of water play! We will study it, experiment with it, get wet with it, and see how far it flies. We will explore the local lakes and appreciate the delicate balance between what lives there and how we affect the ecosystem. Through games, experiments, crafts, and exploration, campers will learn all about the importance of water in our world.
