We are pleased to announce we will be offering ‘6’ weeks of camp this summer at The Waldorf School of Philadelphia!
Our camps provide time to play, relax and enjoy the summer days. Kids are encouraged to use their imagination and share in making our camp days memorable.
Location, Location, Location
The Waldorf School of Philadelphia is conveniently located in Germantown, on Wayne Avenue, between Walnut Lane and Harvey Street. The incredible “Hogwarts-ish campus offers children interactive, well-thought-out playscapes, shaded by towering trees, along with amazing and ideal indoor accommodations. We also have access to hiking trails from the school within short walking distance, and will make sure to use it as part of our daily discovery hikes.
More good news is The Waldorf School offers their own camp for younger children. That’s a benefit for our families with children under the age of six, who then may choose Waldorf camp for their younger ones, 3.5 to 5 years old. All located on the same campus grounds. (Waldorf camp is separate, and you will need to register directly through the Waldorf's School website).
Miss Kim will also be offering day programs (9-3) in the Northwest Section of the Wissahickon for small groups (no more than 6 kids). Day programs will be held out-n-about all day and offer hiking and creek play. Other programs include nature photography and fabric printing with natural materials.

Indigo Nature Arts Sassafras Camp is a nature based day-camp that will be held at the campus of The Waldorf School of Philadelphia in Germantown. The landscape offers several ideal play-scapes, a climbing wall, an obstacle course, "real" woods for daily hiking and other fun exploratory space.
We create a community environment where the children enjoy simple, yet memorable adventures. Child-led play, minute-morning-mediation, handwork, imaginative nature-based art projects, sports, painting, stage for performance, indoor air conditioned space during inclement weather, drawing and natural science weave together an experiential program for children 6 to 11 years old. Parents will also be pleased with the ease of drop-off and pick-up.
Attentive and loving camp teachers and assistants, as well as our super CIT's-counselors-in-training help make the camp experience the best it can be.

Indigo’s Culinary Kids at The Waldorf School
The Menu, The Method, The Table
9:00am - 3:00pm
Culinary Kids offers a fun, hands-on week of wholesome food exploration and appetizing discoveries. Summer sorbets, seasonal garden greens, delicious dressings and tasty tortillas, are just a few things on the menu. Cooking is more than quality ingredients. Kid’s will gain table etiquette skills and take part in the art of floral arranging and festive table setting. They will take home their illustrated recipe books, aprons and chef hats, flower arrangements, and a delightful curiosity for cooking.
Along with the fancy, we look into the use of glass verses plastics, organic verses non-organic and the gifts of planting a small garden. All vegetarian menu. Non-gluten products will be used for those with gluten sensitivities. Dairy will be used sparingly. Please include all allergy information on the health form. Kid's attending must have a "foodie" enthusiasm!
$375 per week, includes supplies
Space is lovingly limited to a Baker's Dozen (13), to provide a quality program.
Camp is sold out.

Raji Malik is a lifelong musician and composer, and an Early Childhood Educator at Abington Friend's School. We're thrilled to have him return.
We are all musical, whether through movement, voice or playing an instrument. Kids are invited to bring their instruments (we also provide some!) and imagination for an fun week in the historic Germantown area. Whether your child likes to play drums, sing, or shake an egg, all are invited. Song writing and composing, hiking and free time to explore the playscapes, will satisfy a week of musical pleasure - with an end of the week performance! Music experience is not necessary!
Raji will lead the camp community through this experimental, musical adventure!
