Waldorf-Inspired Spring Break Camp: APRIL 10-18

The Denver Waldorf School’s Enrichment Camp for Spring Break explores the wonder and whimsy of the season consistent with the Waldorf way. The program allows young students to enjoy outdoor play, craft-making and rest time while maintaining the basic rhythm of a typical Waldorf school day. This year’s theme is Bird’s-eye View of Science and Nature. Reserve your child’s spot by the registration deadline Tuesday, April 4.

New for Spring in 2017

Although fun is always a top priority, our Enrichment Director Dawn Archer is taking our camps in a new direction that more heavily focuses on learning and sustainability. The age-appropriate activities align with the principles of Waldorf education, and the children’s crafts and art will all be handmade from sustainable materials.

Details for the 2017 Spring Break Enrichment Camp

The Spring Break camp is open to all students. We will divide them into two age groups and hold camp in the Larkspur classroom (ECE) and the Aftercare room (Grades). Snacks are included, but children should bring their own lunch.

  • Ages: 3 ½ – 6th grade
  • Duration: Monday, April 10 through Tuesday, April 18
  • Hours: 8:00am-5:30pm*
  • Cost: $55 per day

*No half-day options available, though children may be picked up at any time.

Camp Crafts and Activities Throughout the Week
