The weather is finally getting warm and summer is fast approaching. Have you planned out what your children will be doing? The Waldorf School of Bend offers four amazing weeks of Summer Camp for students aged 6-12 beginning in July. Each week students will be grouped by age (6-9 years old and 10-12 years old). This is a great opportunity for your child to continue with their Waldorf experience. Or, if you’re new to Waldorf education and want to try it out, this is a fantastic way to check out the school in a fun, summer camp setting.
Each session is one week long, so you can sign up for one week, or the entire month! During the week campers will experience field trips, gardening, arts, music, Spanish, yoga & handwork. Field trips include Mountain Air, Sunriver Nature Center, Todd Lake, and more.
Waldorf education focuses on teaching the whole child; head, hands, and heart. This philosophy has been brought through to our summer camps as well, so you can be assured that your child is getting a creative, inspiring and holistic experience while having a blast with new friends.
Week One’s theme is FUNplugged: Classic Camp Games, Week Two is CSI Camp: Clues, Science and Investigation. Week Three is Worldly Wonders week with artists, dancers and games from all around the world. Our last week is called “Imaginature Week” where the children will be out in nature, exploring and having adventures. Which week will you sign up for?

SEE OUR SCHOOL IN ACTION
We welcome your visit to the Waldorf School of Bend! Experience our morning rhythm, and visit a main lesson in each grade. After your classroom visits, we are here to discuss Waldorf philosophy, answer questions, and explore whether the Waldorf approach is a fit for your child and your family. Because we visit classes in session, adults only please. There are other opportunities for your children to visit at our Open Houses.
Beginning in autumn, scheduled tours are held on each Tuesday morning beginning at 9:30. Tours alternate between our grades and early childhood programs. Call Sarah Rucker, Admissions Director, at 541-330-8841 to reserve your spot.
The Waldorf School of Bend cultivates academic excellence through our experiential curriculum rich in the arts, sciences and practical works. We honor each child’s unique spirit by building capacities of will, free thought, compassion and social responsibility. In this way, children develop with purpose to act as powerful world citizens.
