Join our nature based village for hands on skills and outdoor fun. We follow our curiosities to learn down to earth skills from adults who are skilled in their field. We track animals in the brush, water tomatoes in the garden, build a birdhouse in the carpentry room and cool off sitting in the shade of the oak trees working on crafts. We notice what our friends are doing as we pass by and perhaps try a new skill the next day. Projects and adventure are balanced with rest, story and timeless play.
In addition to our core curriculum this camp may include:
- Carpentry Safety & Projects
- Organic Gardening
- Healthy Cooking Projects
- Local Flora & Fauna
- Natural Dyes
- Ecological Arts & Crafts
- Animal Tracking
- Fire by Friction

What is the Meaning of Life According to Rudolf Steiner? with Kim Holscher
Why are we here, in this body?
How do human beings develop?
How do we foster health and strength in Waldorf children?
Is there meaning in our adult struggles, and when can we expect them to be over?
The Austrian scientist, artist and philosopher Rudolf Steiner has a unique view of the stages of human development. Combining the ideas of reincarnation and karma with Western scientific thinking, he describes the developing human being’s growth in body, soul, and spirit. While that is the deep background of Waldorf education, he also elucidates the archetypal ups and downs of adult life into old age.
Come and find out the meaning of life according to Rudolf Steiner in this interactive workshop. We will have conversations about the stages of human development and begin to make our life chart.
All interested adults are welcome.

Celebrations with a Natural Rhythm
Just as there is a rhythm to each day with different tasks appropriate to different times of the day, there is a rhythm to the year. Observing the changing seasons helps the children to work appropriately and fosters a sense of harmony with the rhythmic life of nature throughout the year.

MWS parents are raising happy and healthy children together.
The purpose of the Parent Association is to promote community life and support the school's fundraising efforts and festivals. Our school was founded by a group of dedicated parents and the on-going enthusiasm, support and commitment of parents helps maintain Marin Waldorf as a healthy, harmonious school community. All parents are automatically members of the Parent Association, which meets on the first Monday of each month during the school year. Class representatives volunteer to represent their classes at Association meetings and bring Parent Association news and projects back to the other parents in the various classes.
Parent Association activities are vitally important to our school, as is every family's participation in them. All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend Association meetings. Our Parent Association functions under the guidance of the school administrators.
