ABOUT STORYCAMP

 Build Confidence

 Build Community

 Build a World

“Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility. These three forces are the very nerve of education.”

- Rudolf Steiner

 

Storycamp is an open classroom, a project based approach to education that is implicitly child directed and welcomes teachers as co-creators of summer adventure. We provide opportunities to overcome physical and intellectual challenges so that kids build confidence.

 

The driving forces of our curriculum are play-based, but the intention within that is deeply considered. Primary elements include: connection with nature, circus art, sustainable building, and theater. Storycamp seeks to embolden children, to encourage curiosity and build fresh relationships with a rapidly evolving world. Our activities are designed to facilitate embodiment, vast imagination and the ability to respond empathetically in diverse circumstances.

Children, in turn, remind us how to be playful and spontaneous. Our aim is to create a learning environment that is reciprocal, fun, and collaborative. We want children to feel supported so that they feel safe to take risks, share and bring their stories to life.

 

We spend most of our time outside and venture out on a variety field trips. Our instructors are professional artists and experienced educators who have worked with children throughout the world.
