Click below for more information:

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
  • Scout Games & Practices
  • Mapping
  • Wild Edibles
  • and more...

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.

    parent association

    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.
