Waldorf-Inspired Summer Camp
Camp Glen Brook Offers Mindful & Developmental Summer Camp Experience
Since 1946, Camp Glen Brook in Marlborough, New Hampshire, has been weaving the ideals of Waldorf education with a traditional New England camp experience. We offer a 3- or 6-week summer camp during which lifetime bonds are formed and which is modeled after Rudolf Steiner’s vision of the development of the child.
Camp Glen Brook’s summer camp serves boys and girls ages 8 to 14. The program balances and harmonizes the needs of the bodies, minds, and hearts of the children as they grow and develop.
The goal of our program is to nurture in children the capacity for free thinking and action as adults. We do this through an underlying form of rhythm and structure. We believe that premature exposure to too many choices and ever-changing structures can give an illusory sense of freedom that can actually undermine the attainment of genuine and deep freedom in later life.
With few exceptions, children must participate in every camp program and activity, thereby engaging in a wide spectrum of experiences. Most often campers are expert in some activities and can encourage and help others find greater success, while in other activities they need the support and expertise of their peers. Through these and other experiences at Glen Brook, a true community is built – rather than a society of individuals only striving for self-enhancement.
