Indigo Camps 2016!
Very excited for our 5th year of camp in the Wissahickon! I'm happy to announce that Su Murphy will be my co-teacher this summer. Please take a look at Su's passion and background below and what she will share with the camp!
People often ask the ratio of teachers to campers. Due to the fact that Indigo Camps are small enrollment camps, I hire one adult co-teacher, and we generally have 3-4 junior counselors per week. The maximum enrollment for Sassafras Camps is up to 16 children. We generally have 12-15 children per week. During specialty camp weeks, I reduce the maximum to no more than 10-12 children per week, depending on the program. During those weeks, it is myself and the co-teacher, as well as 1-2 junior counselors. The junior counselors are 12-15 years old, and sweetly engage with the children. They are there to read to, hold hands on trails, and play games with the children. They are priceless and the children love them.
About Su - Su has been eclectically home schooling her 3 girls for over a decade now, and holds PA Teaching Certifications in ELED, SPED and Middle Years English and Social Studies. Su also has a BSN and prior to teaching worked as an RN. Su believes that ultimately we are here to learn to connect, and be stewards of the earth & each other. The way each of us communicates and forges this connection is through whatever unique mode of creative expression feeds our soul. Su also holds a deep belief that the natural world is the best classroom, and in the joy and growth that happens organically when we all find and follow our own inner compass. She enjoys spending as much time as possible in nature with her wild and wonderful girls, and with her backyard chickens and a very special flock of 4-H sheep.

I'm looking forward to meeting new campers and spending time once again with those who have been to Indigo in the past!
