Reviews: "What a wonderful time the girls had at summer camp! The Waldorf School is such a gorgeous and fun place... I am just so regretful that we were not signed up to come back for more weeks. And all of the teachers there are just fantastic :) The girls really enjoyed their counselors so much and really really enjoyed spending time with Miss Chris in the hours after camp. Thank you again for being so sweet!" - Anna, mother of girls ages 6 and 8 "My daughter attended last week and really enjoyed her time with you. The week seemed to offer just the right balance of structured activities and freedom to be a summertime kid! I especially loved the days that I found my daughter frolicking with other children in the sprinkler on the playground at pick up time! Or playing board games under the pavilion. It was a scene right out of my own 'backyard summertime fun' days! Please thank Buddy, Sky, Starr, Shaphir, Stephanie and Miss Chis for their individualized time and attention. This was our first experience at your summer camp and I am happy to say it was a good one and we will be back again next year!" - Maria, mother
