Strings Camp – July 7-11 Mary Schallert’s string camp is for kids going into the fourth grade and up, experienced players welcome. Week 1: Herbal Remedies – July 14-18 What is the science of soap-making? What about making lip balm or homemade tea? What are the ways the Natural World can help heal us? This week we will examine the basic elements found in our world and what everyday things we can create from simple, natural ingredients. Week 2: Travel the World in 5 Days – July 21-25 Experience a mosaic of vibrant cultures through story, craft, and cuisine this week. We’ll visit North America following the steps of Native Peoples, then journey across the seas to the Buddhist monks in Nepal. We’ll safari in Africa, spend a day Down Under and soak in the Black Sea of Turkey. Jump aboard this global adventure for a peek at life outside Anchorage! Week 3: Build and Bake – July 28 – Aug 1 From setting stones to constructing homemade breads and pizzas, this week is all about productivity and purpose! First we will construct an outdoor cob oven from the ground up, then get down to the busy work of bakers and chefs. What an opportunity to keep those summer hands busy! Week 4: Art in Nature – Aug 4-8 Experience art through the lens of Waldorf Education — get those hands busy and create! Incorporating natural foraged items, campers will felt wool, paint on canvas, and work with a visiting ceramist on clay building. Optional woodworking project for grade 4 and up based on enrollment.
Love the page, Darcel. Can't wait for my kids to experience these camps this summer!
