Waldorf School of Princeton 2020 Summer Camps

“I loved that the day and activities were structured, but not overly so. Children were allowed to express their creativity and imagination. Opportunities to wade in the creek and bake bread in a wood-fired oven made for memorable experiences.” – Camp parent

“My daughter loved the chance to play in the woods and the stream – so back to nature and so different from what is ordinarily available to her. She also made girlfriends more easily than ever before and was happy about that.” – Camp parent

“Safe but unstructured exploration is the perfect balance to his very structured school life.”  – Camp parent

At the Waldorf School of Princeton Summer Camp, camp groups for ages 4-12 spend the warm days of summer exploring the diverse 20+ acre campus, playing games, expressing their imagination through artistic projects, practicing cooking, and engaging in organic gardening. Three individual sessions are available beginning June 22 and ending July 31.

New this year, Movement & Games Camp is designed to teach campers about sportsmanship, healthy movement, coordination, nature, and cooperation. Waldorf’s campus will play host to a variety of sport and athletic events. Sessions will take place from August 3 through 21.

Children are divided into groups by age. Tadpoles (ages 4-5), Crayfish (ages 6-7), Foxes (ages 8-9), and Hawks (ages 10-12) will partake in all sorts of activities, from bread baking to tie-dying, treasure hunts, farming and gardening, feeding chickens, watercolor painting, clay sculpting, working with yarn, and playing in the creek.

Morning sessions (8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.) and full day sessions (8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.) are available.
