Parents and family members of Housatonic Valley Waldorf School summer camp students were welcomed by a row of students looking over a fence door on the school’s campus on Friday, August 15.
Behind the row of students at the entrance, Camp Director Carrie Reilly was busy overseeing a spread of harvest feast offerings, from a sampling of fruit smoothies to vegetable soup, from pizza to salad, for parents, family members, and campers lined up to eat and celebrate.
The summer camp at Housatonic Valley Waldorf School was offered for students between the ages of 3 and 12, and along with learning the art of food preparation, students also made crafts throughout the summer.
A tent was set up with tables and chairs below it for the feast.
Camp outings this summer included a visit to Holbrooke Farm in Bethel to farm and harvest some of the food choices served at the end of summer harvest feast, according to Ms Reilly.
Camper Mason Baliko said his favorite part of the feast were chocolate cupcakes with avocado chocolate frosting.
