Summertime! 

In addition to school programs, OSDS offers summer programs for children ages 3 - 10 from late June to mid-August each year. This summer, we are thrilled to be offering a program in Sag Harbor, at our year-round, farm-like location: 11 Carroll Street, as well as a satellite program in East Hampton at the Springs Fireplace Farm. The rhythms of both programs are similar: children spend the entire morning outdoors, rain or shine, experiencing the  joys of caring for the barnyard animals and working with the earth. The curriculum is designed in accordance with the ideals of Waldorf education: there is plenty of opportunity for creative play, song, movement, artistic activity, and farm activities. Nourish your child’s inherent connection to nature and enliven their curiosity about the world around them at one of our summer programs!

INFORMATION ABOUT OUR 2018 SUMMER CAMP PROGRAMS WILL BE POSTED IN FEBRUARY OF 2018. 

 

2017 OSDS SUMMER CAMP: 11 Carroll Street, Sag Harbor 

 

The chickens, ducks, goats,  large vegetable patch, herb and flower gardens, and expansive woodland play yard create a pastoral setting,  providing the perfect backdrop for the time-honored joys of childhood summertime. 

Mixed age learning is a tenet of our philosophy, and is one of the treasures of our summer programs. Each class has its own teacher and enjoys small-group time, but also is given space to come together with the other classes and to enjoy a broader social experience. 

Each day, we share a healthy, home-made, organic snack, featuring fresh produce from our garden, planted, tended and harvested by our campers. 

These programs are co-taught by Holly Maran & Andi Pisacano.

CHILDREN'S GARDEN  Real work with a real purpose inspires the developing will of the young child, and in our children's garden, campers work in the garden, and help to prepare our snack as we wash freshly harvested vegetables, bake bread, churn butter and grind grain. Each day also provides children with a space for uninterrupted play and exploration, as they collect their treasures and discover the natural world around them.  Daily circles include seasonal songs, poems and movement journeys.  The day ends with a storytelling or puppetry.

  • Days:  (Four day program) MONDAY - THURSDAY
  • Ages: 3 to 6
  • Tuition: $525/ week 

WOODLAND ARTS Budding artists and outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy this creative program. Hands-on experience helps strengthen a personal connection to the earth and foster a sense of stewardship.  Your child will spend the summer engaged in practical work in the garden, creative play and ART! Organic snack from our garden will also be enjoyed, and the day ends with storytelling or puppetry. (Our woodland play yard is well-kept by our goats, and sprayed monthly with an organic, essential oil tick repellant.)
