Vilda village SUmmer camp
at marin waldorf
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.
The lovely oak shaded campus of Marin Waldorf School and adjacent open spaces serve as our learning playground for this long awaited camp. The camp is Waldorf compatible but open to everyone.
In addition to our core curriculum this camp may include:
Carpentry Safety & Projects
Healthy Cooking Projects
Local Flora & Fauna
Ecological Arts & Crafts
Fire by Friction
Scout Games & Practices

Making a cash donation to Marin Waldorf School is a great way to support our this year's Fund-A-Need; the Kindergarten Yard Renovation. We raised $9230 at our Spring Party. We need your help to raise $17,770 more!
Every dollar you donate goes directly to supporting our students. Our Fund-A-Need brings use and function to the outdoor space used by the Kindergartens for half their day.
Children that live in the Bay Area today have a very different culture that surrounds them than from 20 years ago. A culture that all too easily lets their children sit in front of a screen to be entertained. Children need to move and interact with other living beings. They need the opportunity to explore nature; listen to the birds, watch a bee buzz from flower to flower, wonder at worms and bugs, watch the changing weather, and enjoy tasks together with their other children and adults outdoors.
In the past ten years, the preschool and kindergarten yards have lost 5 playhouses to the elements and were needed to be torn down. Now is the time to replace them!
Stage One - Build the “Garden Classroom”
Stage Two - Build a Kinder Garden
Stage Three - Build Children’s Playhouses (4)

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.
