Wildheart Kindergarten is a nature camp in Bend, Oregon, offering experiential outdoor learning in a small group, led by a certified and experienced Waldorf Teacher. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: We have a license to operate as an Emergency Childcare Facility should there be another lock down scenario. Please do not apply if you plan to go into full quarantine in the event of a lock down. We are planning to continue to offer the classes in our small group size of 10 and there will be no refunds or credits offered for missed classes. Wildheart Kindergarten currently offers a 4-day half day program serving ages 3.5 -5 on our farm location. Our camp home base is a waterproof shelter and bathroom with access to wild-growth meadows, woodland trails, meandering streams, and farm animals. With rich Waldorf curriculum woven into the daily rhythm, campers will be immersed in the arts of watercolor painting, beeswax modeling, bread making, storytelling, wild-crafting, food preservation, wool handwork, journaling, book binding, and lessons in environmental stewardship.
