~Unfortunately, our camps for 2019 are currently full.~
Madison Waldorf School offers two summer camp programs during 6 one-week sessions. Our camps provide 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. Camps have 12 to 16 campers led by experienced counselors.
Full Circle Program (3-6 years old)
Our Full Circle Camp is a magical opportunity for younger children to 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 years old)
Camp of the Elements campers swim, hike, garden, craft, make pottery, and more! 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 appreciate the natural world through planting, building, creating, and exploring our environment.
We start each day with morning snack over campfires. We will learn how to build a fire, make our own fire starters and do solar cooking. 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. Through games, experiments, crafts, and exploration, campers will learn all about the importance of water in our world.
