A Sunny Look Back at DWS Summer Arts Camp

Detroit Waldorf School hosted a community-wide Summer Arts Camp on our campus for the second year in a row, and to rave reviews. The grounds were alive with laughter, singing, drumming, bells, dancing and colorful art. Children were given free reign to tap into their creative spirit during free-maker time. The children learned new skills and techniques while working on projects with their teachers, all who are working artists in their own right. 

Inspired by the living gardens on the school's grounds, campers learned to prepare healthful dishes - cooking collaboratively with each other under the watchful eye of Wellness at Waldorf Coordinator, Katherine Feldhouse -to share at snack time. Some of the camp favorites included in-season sushi, whole grain personal pizzas, organic egg frittata, and vegan brownies sweetened with applesauce. 

With the summer session already behind us, this year's camp (and campers) have us excited and inspired to begin planning for our next break camp with the help of our new Extended Care and Break Camp Coordinator, Ryan Gumbleton. Join us as we welcome Ryan, and as we thank all of our outstanding Summer Arts Camps teachers -Ms. Dardas, Ms. Gustafson, and Ms. Gaddy- for another wonderful summer here at Detroit Waldorf School.
