Summer Camp 2019     

1/23

I’m pleased to announce that we will be offering ‘6’ weeks of camp this summer at the awe-inspiring location of the Waldorf School of Philadelphia! We will also be offering an additional ‘2’ weeks on the grounds of our woodsy home in the Andorra Natural Area, located in the Northwest Section of the Wissahickon, at one of our favorite places, The Tree House.

 

That’s a total of '8' weeks this summer in TWO awesome settings! 

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. 

 

As always, the Tree House provides an enchanting forest landscape, with easy hiking to the Wissahickon Creek, fully maintained trails, a stage for performer campers, and a lovely back porch to gather 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 to 5 years old. All located on the same campus grounds. (Waldorf camp is separate, and you will need to register directly through them).

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 12!), help make the camp experience the best it can be.
