indigo nature arts

Indigo Nature Arts has a couple of spaces open for 7 year old children for the weeks of July 8-12 and August 5-9. This is a nature and art based camp in the Wissahickon, held at the Cedars House on Forbidden Drive. An outdoor playspace will offer a bamboo play fort that the children can rebuild, a tepee made from tree branches and a cozy outdoor rest canopy. We explore the Wissahickon creek nearby, walk the newly built hiking trails in the Andorra hills and watch for birds of prey in the restored meadow. Each week offers a craft/art projects with quality materials. This is a unique opportunity for the child who likes a small group and enjoys working with their hands and exploring in nature. For more information you can check out, or email Kim directly at
