Back to the Land Nature Camp launches!
Indigo Nature Arts is going Back to the Land!
Summer Camp 2023
Join us for four weeks of exploration, fun, and adventure in the Wissahickon forest. The Andorra Natural area is a tranquil, scenic setting with hiking trails and a restored meadow. Kids will hike and explore the creek, connect with the land and native wildlife, and have plenty of imaginative playtime. Indigo Nature Art’s Nature Camp provides kids with an opportunity to observe and study creatures with wings, fins, and fur, while looking at how humans play a part in the health of the land and how all can make a positive impact. Indigo Nature Arts values the unique nature of each child. We are excited for you to join us!

Honey Bees and Pollinators!
A fun week to explore, play, and ramble the trails, kids learn honey bee facts and how humans can help the pollinators. Kids create a buzz and investigate how honey bees and other pollinating insects play a part in making a healthy planet. What would we do without them? Honey tasting included!
Things with Wings
Hummingbirds, butterflies and dragonflies, songbirds and birds of prey, kids learn about winged creatures. Kids get creative and become detectives of the forest, zooming in on fine feathered friends. A week to enjoy the beauty of flight and day dream on what life would be like if humans could fly.
Things that Slither and Scamper
Snakes, salamanders, squirrels, deer, and other native animals roam their home, the Wissahickon forest. Kids will spend the week closely scouting and observing the native animals. How do the animals survive where there is less land for them to thrive? How do humans play a role? A week of fun and thinking, kids will gain appreciation for all creatures big and small.
Things that Swim
Exploring the Wissahickon Creek, kids will take on the adventure of learning about what swims in the waters, the health and history of the creek, and the impact humans have on it. Plenty of creek and mud fun kids investigate and learn how to become stewards of the waters.
