The Little School
Bright Water School
Hours:Summer, 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Our camp conforms to kids, not the other way around. Instead of a rigid structure, we give our campers choice. Instead of teaching kids the typical way, we give them tools and gentle guidance to help them become autodidacts, people who teach themselves. The difference is subtle–and it’s profound. There are a gazillion ways for kids to design a day at camp. One camper might dive into breadmaking and animation while another flies down a water slide and scores a goal in our inflatable soccer stadium. It’s up to them. Our plans are designed to grant peace of mind like Raja Yoga. You can buy any number of day passes, use them whenever you want, and get an automatic refund for unused passes. If you need the whole summer, we’ve got a membership too. You don’t even need to tell us when you’re coming. Everything is included–lunch, all hours 7:30am to 6pm, and materials. Now peace of mind can be attained without having to get into a downward dog pose. Namaste. Grades Pre-K through 7th. 40+ locations. Founded in 1980. 415-389-KIDS. Register at www.steveandkate.com.
