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 17 and running through July 26. We meet Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 1pm (including July 4th!). You may enroll your child in one session or up to all six sessions! Please pack a lunch – an organic morning snack is provided.
We also offer a fun and nurturing After Care Program from 1 to 3:30pm for children ages 6 – 10 at an additional cost of $20 per day. Our staff is well trained in environmental education, bringing a “sustainable model” to the young child.
*Cost is $310 per week. Receive 10% Early Bird Discount when you register by March 29, 2019.
