New Offerings Expand CWS Summer Camps

Monday, April 2012

Chicago Waldorf School has hosted summer camps for many years. As the enrollment has grown, and the age range of campers has broadened, and after successful summer workshops in volleyball and enhanced interest in basketball, the demand for a wider range of opportunities has led the school to expand its summer camp offerings. Summer at Waldorf now has new programs for older campers, and for sports and movement focused activities. See the details below.

New Addition! Summer Camp Aftercare option has been added: Providing campers with extended day coverage at the end of camp (from 3:00pm until 6:00pm).

For more information about Aftercare options please contact Megan Rich in the Main Office at 773.465.2662


Kid Camp . . . . . . . . . . . 4-9 years

Focused on age appropriate play, KID CAMP includes structured creative crafts and “making” activities, daily outdoor time including trips to the beach, playgrounds, and far-ranging field trips by schoolbus, as well as time for campers’ imaginative free play and social interactions.

Action Camp . . . . . . . . . 10-14 years

For older campers structured creative activities include sports and physical activities, earth-science explorations and creative authorship projects (painting, poetry writing, handwork and other crafts-based options). ACTION CAMPers also participate in weekly field trips to leading Chicago educational and cultural institutions.

Sports Camps . . . . . . . . 11-18 years

Our BASKETBALL CAMPS are open to all skill levels, from beginner to advanced. They teach fundamental skill development as well as team concepts. Campers receive individual instruction from highly qualified coaches, with previous college playing and coaching experience. (For 6th-12th graders)

The SPORTS AND MOVEMENT CAMP is designed to offer a variety of activities which promote healthy active living. Campers receive instruction in volleyball, soccer, fitness, tumbling, circus arts and more. (For 6th-8th graders)
