Students, parents, faculty and friends are invited to view a series of photographs about Camp Glen Brook that are currently on display in the breezeway connecting the Waldorf School’s lower school and the high school buildings.
The photography exhibit was put together by Waldorf parent Iwonka Piotrowska.
"I wanted to strike a balance between the ‘work’ of Glen Brook and the
‘play,’ of Glen Brook," remarked Ms. Piotrowska. "The distinction
between the two is often blurred, where work is experienced and
remembered as a kind of play, and play is recollected as an event where
great ‘work’ is accomplished."
Throughout the school year, Camp Glen Brook hosts school groups for
residential visits. Students are expected to help with the farm’s daily
chores and meal preparations. While the schedule is full, there is also
ample free time for students to explore the out‐of‐doors, sit by the
wood stove in the Main House living room and play a board game, or go
sledding on the hill. The pace of each day is the usual Glen Brook
balance of play, work, and leisure time.
Camp Glen Brook offers a life of simplicity—free from the pull of
computers, television, and other electronics—children come to appreciate their own imaginations, the company of others, and wonder of the
The Waldorf School of Garden City owns and operates Camp Glen Brook.
Situated in southwestern New Hampshire near Mt. Monadnock, this
beautiful property includes several houses, over 240 acres of farmland
and forest, a working farm with animals, large organic gardens, a lake
free of motorboats, and miles of trails from which to explore the
surrounding mountains and woodlands.
Ms. Piotrowska’s photographic work is rooted in an abiding interest in
cycles of growth and decay, which she has studied through printmaking
and mixed media installations, as well as through photography. Her work
is not about form; rather, it is concerned with the intertwining of
materials, the senses and time, and finding beauty in the everyday.
Ms. Piotrowska is a trained and licensed architect and mother of three
current Waldorf students. She is married to Waldorf alumnus David
Resnick (class of 1979).
