World Waldorf Camp’s main goals are to propose benchmarking, contemporary approaches to education in China. It teaches children how to create with their own hands and appreciate the result. Witnessing their own capability, children grow in self-esteem toward their true and full potential. WWC creates an international environment for children, to teach children social skills through mutual interaction and to educate parents in raising their children to benefit from Waldorf methods. Thus, we foster holistically the development of the whole child, skills of the heart, the hand, and the head.

There are currently several Waldorf schools and Waldorf kindergartens in China, yet for the world’s most populated country with over 1.4 billion people, this is hardly enough. To sustainably influence society and its direction, one needs a critical mass of people demanding and practicing certain values.

Today, World Waldorf Camp is now an international non-profit organization based in Shanghai, China. “It is the only international Waldorf organization in China, run by foreign Waldorf graduates and Chinese educated Waldorf folk.”

Only the first Chinese Waldorf School in Chengdu has its state license. Many parents recognize that children’s needs are not being truly met in the public school and kindergarten system. They are interested in Waldorf methods, but they do not dare to send their child to one of the new schools yet for, as Mr. Luo Xuan (Waldorf teacher, Chengdu school) puts it: 

“Waldorf is something new to China and historically untried as education for Chinese students in today’s very competitive economic system.”

World Waldorf Camp offers an experiential approach to Rudolf Steiner’s educational concept.

“Through our camps, even children who do not attend a Waldorf school can experience Waldorf activities with global Waldorf graduates, alumni, and teachers.”

During the holidays, we take kids out of the huge, polluted cities where most are living, into the marvelous, natural countryside that China and other parts of the world offer. We hike, sing, dance, act, experience and develop our senses together. We have social encounters and create art with our own hands and hearts.

 “For over 10 years in China, we offer our vast variety of curricular activities, tools, and opportunities to engage in and enhance life skills for children, parents, and adults.”

Through curiosity, we develop positive attitudes toward challenges.

Through responsibility, we form strong leadership skills and team player qualities.

Thus, with our learners, we focus on broadening their horizons, enriching their self-understanding, and deepening their self-respect. As a result, intellectual and emotional command of the individual is formed, social and environmental awareness deepened, and language skills enhanced, both in the mastery of one’s native tongue and in the foreign language.

Gaining authenticity, we intensify the perception of ourselves to actively design our future world.

This is how we believe contemporary education should look like: supporting the developing human to be fully aware and in power of one’s utmost potential, in order to make a positive impact in this world.

We promise that we help to form individuals to come closer to their true nature and potential, and to make everyone’s experience last a lifetime.
