We have been weaving Waldorf education together with traditional New England camping since 1946, creating a community that values creativity, compassion and stewardship.
Glen Brook is a gem. It is a place where children and adults can step out of the busyness of their everyday schedules and settle into the rhythms and joys of nature. It is a place to be refreshed by the clear mountain air, cool lake water, and wholesome farm-to-table food. A place to play in verdant meadows, hike along magical forest paths or simply sit on the hill and gaze upon the majesty of Mount Monadnock. A place to sing around the campfire with new and old friends under the bright evening stars. Camp Glen Brook is a place where your body, mind and spirit can be renewed.
