waldorf summer camp
Give your child the gift of a natural rhythmic summer, like we had when we were young. Our camp 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.
Summer days are filled with:
Outdoor play, Music, Storytime, Arts & Craft and Baking
Our summer camp is for current Waldorf families, for new families who are curious to learn more about it and for families who just want to give their child a natural summer.
Ages 3.5 to 6
Children must have experience in preschool setting prior to camp.
$495 for first session (no camp on 4th of July)

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. Marin Waldorf School celebrates the changing seasons with major all-school festivals. In addition we hold annual festivals and events for the larger community.

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.
