Dreaming of A New Summer Camp
Seed dream for a Waldorf Summer camp on or within hiking distance from a Biodynamic farm and serving "Nourishing Traditions" as the camp food!

I'm dreaming of a new Summer camp for children and to some extent for parents as well.
The camp would include all the favorite recreational camp life possible and much more! First of all it would be completely grounded in the Waldorf pedagogy:
a pedagogy that views the child as a whole incarnating soul with certain age-appropriate needs. The camp would begin with Waldorf children and possibly welcome all children (regardless of their educational orientation) however I would let the founding parents determine that as much as possible.
The camp would be located as close as possible to a full working Biodynamic farm: http://www.biodynamics.com/biodynamics.html.
The campers would have opportunities to participate in some of the farm life and most importantly the farm would supply as much of the camp food as much as possible! This means that the farm would either need to be located first or started first. I have another vision for what I have called an "In-home clinic" that also would be built on or next to the BD farm. The clinic could serve as the camp's "get-well-soon house" (although I think it would hardly be used as long as everyone eats the wonderful camp food)!
All the food served would be the kind found in Nourishing Traditions: http://www.amazon.com/Nourishing-Traditions-Challenges-Politically-Dictocrats...
The camp kitchen would then allow for training new cooks and chefs in the ways of nutrient-dense foods.
Altogether the exceptional nutrition programs (as well as all of the camp life) would offer a very healthy daily life as well as great support for parents who want to offer their children a deeper immersion into ways of wholeness.
Now just having written this I am encouraged to return again to my vision for a BD farm! I will plant my dream for a BD farm!
I will add more as the spirit moves me!

While eating dinner last night I suddenly was re-inspired with the thought of a healthy Summer camp for children. No movement on the above stated vision without a site for the camp however now my friend has a 40+ acre site! I've just emailed to ask whether my friend has thought of hosting a Summer camp.
