Seasonal Celebrations

Daily, weekly, and seasonal activities and celebrations are essential elements of community life at Camphill Special School, fostering a mood of devotion and gratitude in the students and bringing meaning and joy to their lives.

 

The cycle of the year is celebrated by giving children a sense of the progression of time and awakening their awareness of the changing seasons. The return of festivals year after year creates both highlights to anticipate and a stronger memory with which to look back. A conscious relationship to nature through the seasons is deepened.

 

Weekly services on Sundays punctuate the weekly rhythm, helping to anchor children in the ever-moving stream of time. Days begin with a verse and a song and daily meals are blessed with a grace and taking of hands.

 

Our community celebrates Michaelmas, Halloween, All Saints and All Souls Day, St. Martin's Day, and the four weeks of Advent; turns to St. Paul’s Day, Candlemas (Ground Hog Day), and Mardi Gras in the winter; prepares and celebrates Whitsun in the spring; and marks St. John’s as the gateway to summer. Through initiatives within the community, national holidays like Columbus Day, Martin Luther King Day, and the Fourth of July also are woven into the fabric of our educational and festival life.
