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.”
