River Valley Waldorf School, in Upper Black Eddy, is offering three different summer camps to satisfy children ages 3 to 12. The camps are consistent with the child-centered practices and principles of Waldorf Education.
Campers ages 3 to 6 can enjoy ample time playing outdoors and in the water; they also learn baking, craft-making and other creative pursuits including creating puppet stories. This camp is also offered at the Waldorf Morning Glory Doylestown campus.
Children enrolled in grades 1 through 3 participate in our Old-fashioned Camp, which is modeled after earlier times. Campers will be in the woods, on the soccer field and in the outdoor kitchen, doing activities such as woodworking, solar cooking, craft-making, playing and singing. Free time is included to foster creativity.
Back by popular demand is a circus skills camp for children enrolled in grades 4 to 7. They will learn a variety of circus skills including classic juggling, juggling diablo and plate spinning, as well as clowning, acrobatics and even trapeze. Circus skills build confidence, self-esteem and teamwork abilities.
Costs and weeks available vary. Location: 1395 Bridgeton Hill Rd., Upper Black Eddy. For more information, call 610-982-5606 or visit RiverValleySchool.org.
