WEEK THREE:

SEAFARERS WAY

JULY 8 - 12  
This week will involve treasure map making,
sea shanties, and wee boat making.

Summer Camp at Marin Waldorf School follows the curriculum of Waldorf education, where cultivating the imagination and playing free in nature are valued. Your children will enjoy spending their days in our beautiful oak grove and inside the homelike environment of our early childhood classrooms.

Marin Waldorf's talented teachers welcome children ages 3.5 to 6 to attend our summer camp. Children must have previously attended preschool to attend camp. We welcome families who are new to Marin Waldorf School to attend our fun, nurturing summer camp. 

Our mornings will be spent exploring the natural world on our 10 acre campus and Open Space Preserves a block away. We will focus our outdoor time in a variety of summer activities including gardening, water play, and exploration. The rhythm of our mornings will closely follow that of our regular early childhood day with seasonal songs, stories and crafts, and will include an organic snack each day.
