Summer Program

2020 Summer Program

During the summer, we offer 6 weeks of activities and immersive fun on the beautiful, 22-acre Sacramento Waldorf School campus. Each day, children will enjoy a variety of structured pursuits as well as time to play and engage socially.

Throughout the summer, we create community on campus with everyone who participates, striving for kindness, creativity, imagination, and joy. We welcome Sacramento Waldorf School (SWS) students and students from other schools, too.

Each week, students will enjoy a new craft. Students can participate in one week at a time or sign up for multiple, or all, weeks. Many children attend all 6 weeks, so we do our best to offer new experiences every week.
