I’m pleased to announce we will be offering ‘6’ weeks of camp this summer at The Waldorf School of Philadelphia! We will also be offering an additional ‘2’ weeks on the grounds of our woodsy home in the Northwest Section of the Wissahickon, at one of our favorite places, The Andorra Natural Area, The Grounds of the Tree House.
Need to contact us? Email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or call 215.350.7788.
All of 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.
Returning to The Andorra Natural Area, Andorra offers an enchanting forest landscape, with easy hiking to the Wissahickon Creek, fully maintained trails, and an indoor space in case of inclement weather.
Another piece of good news is that 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).

I thank you for your patience, cooperation and responses for confirmations so the administrative task can be handled with ease.
Indigo Nature Arts Sassafras Camp is a nature based day-camp that will be held at our new camp home location on 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 (who have been attending camp since they were five-years-old, now 13!), help make the camp experience the best it can be.

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! Questions as to if it's right for your child, please email me at email@example.com.

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!
