Under present conditions we are unable to offer our regular summer camp programs. The types of programs normally offered can not be conducted under the specifications from the county health department. If you already registered for camp and paid, you will be receiving a refund check by mail in the next few weeks. We will miss seeing all of you this summer and hope to be back again in 2021. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we try to adjust to all of the things that are out of our control.
Come experience the beauty of our farm or the excitement of our circus! Our summer programs are a great way to get a taste of our school and Sonoma county.
Farm Camp, for ages 4 – 10
Farm Camp at Summerfield Waldorf School and Farm is an opportunity for children to connect with the natural world while living into the rhythms and experience of a working farm. The day is designed to inspire a connection with and love of nature and the outdoors. Activities include gathering eggs, planting in the garden, picking berries and vegetables, cooking delicious organic snacks, crafts, games, songs and stories. Our 4-5 year old program will take place in a new location – our First Grade Playgarden which will be transformed into a nature habitat with crafts and garden work. This location makes daily trips to the Farm and Permaculture Garden more accessible. Our 6 – 10 year old program will take place on our Farm.
We offer six, one-week sessions of Farm Camp starting June 15 and running through July 24. We meet Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 1pm. You may enroll your child in one session or up to all six sessions! Please pack a lunch – an organic morning snack is provided.
