The Waldorf School of St. Louis Summer Camps

The joy of learning and growing continues this summer at The Waldorf School of St. Louis. Our outdoor summer camps are all about the magic of Early Childhood. From whimsical storytelling and outdoor exploration to simple crafts and circle time, each day gives children the opportunity to be outside and unplug. Sign up for The Wonderful World of Bugs, as we explore the insects living inside our magical meadow and green spaces. Young ones will create creepy-crawly art, learn verses and songs and hear insect-themed stories, too. Or sign up for Sandcastles, Mud Pies and Fireflies. Wear clothes that can get wet and dirty as we transform the meadow into a cityscape of castles, channels, and dams.
