Foundational Fun Summer Program

Foundational Fun Summer is a day camp that is designed to help children
 become more comfortable in their bodies and at ease in their learning. This program uses a variety of modalities that complement Waldorf Education.

Children will engage in activities that involve movement and visual arts through age-appropriate games and stories. Classes will include dancing, gardening, painting, and clay modeling, with exercises drawn from Extra Lesson, Spatial Dynamics, and various Reflex Integration methods.

During our time together we will have afternoon outdoor adventures in nature, swimming lessons, and four horseback riding lessons at River Valley Riders in Afton.

Special emphasis will be given to each child’s individual needs with regards to fine motor, gross motor, and self-movement abilities and to developing healthy social skills. Rhythmical Massage and Reflex Integration work will be offered to campers individually to further support sensory development and integration.

Foundational Fun Summer program begins June 19 and runs through June 30, 2023.
