Don’t miss your chance for a fun-filled, safe week of summer camp at VWS this year. Leave your children with us for a week, or six, with the peace of mind that they will be cared for in a manner congruent with our Waldorf philosophy. Camps will be themed each week and organized by our teachers to include favourite activities such as woodworking, games, baking, crafting, hiking, and weekly excursions to popular Vancouver attractions.

Our Summer Camp is open to all children and is a great way to taste what Waldorf School is like in a relaxed and fun atmosphere, without enrolling as a full-time student. Following the rhythm of the day and week, we endeavour to provide a healthy balance of directed activities and supervised free play. Our program is sure to create wonderful summer memories to last a lifetime.
