Summer Camps for Children and Teens – Creating Harmonious Community Life
The Christian Community has been hosting summer camps in North America for over 50 years. There are and have been camps in Ontario, Canada, on the East Coast, Midwest and in Colorado and California. Each camp has its own character connected with its setting, staff and duration of the camp. Check each individual camp to see the appropriate age range for that camp.
The intention is to bring children and teens out of an urban environment into nature to experience the world in new and healthy ways. The strong daily and weekly rhythms, the caring interest of counselors, the singing, the stories, the crafts, the wide-ranging activities carry the children through the two-three weeks of camp. Campers are divided into groups and will spend the whole camp together with their group. Each group has a counselor (or two) who will be with their group continuously, eating, sleeping and doing activities.

For the fourth summer, Adventure Camps are offering five adventure camps: two for high schoolers, two for grade schoolers and a new family camp. Each Adventure Camp is organized, led, and run by a team of young adults, led by experienced outdoor enthusiasts and teachers, all dedicated to the work of creating a safe and fun camp together for children today.
Each trip will create an independent and full camp experience, with singing, stories and projects as well as the outdoors camping aspect of building our own camp, cooking our own food, and on some trips, traveling to our next camp location.

Camp Tamarack has been offering the Waldorf Community a quality wilderness experience for children 9-15 years old since 1971. Camp Tamarack is surrounded by granite peaks and tall pine trees. Children form life-long friendships while experiencing the outdoors by hiking to stunning sites and swimming in nearby water holes and lakes.
With a healthy rhythm of the day, we cultivate a wholesome and joyful community. Morning and evening gatherings greet and conclude each day with story and song. During the day, children are involved in group projects and activities under the guidance of their counselors. Activities include: arts and crafts, drama, horseback riding, archery, games, dancing, hiking, fishing, swimming, canoeing, overnight camp-outs and campfires.
