The Second Annual
Indigo Summer, Atlanta
An experience in an intentional village model honoring the children of the new millennium
July 8— 13, 2002
Unity North Atlanta Church
Indigo Summer is a non-profit camp whose purpose is to provide a natural learning environment for the exploration of a child's identity and sense of personal purpose. Indigo Summer is a week-long camping retreat in natural surroundings where classes, workshops and discussions will provide a variety of experiences and expressions for the soul of young people ages 7-18. Indigo Summer Camp uses volunteers for both workshops and staff positions. Workshops promoting intuitive learning are presented on a village model, where students choose which workshops suit their interests.
My son, Adam, attended the Indigo Village Summer Camp last year. The benefits that Adam received from this experience are immeasurable!! Adam made some beautiful arts and crafts as well as built self-esteem through role playing, dancing, music and an informative day at the Chattahoochee Nature Center. The counselors also taught him a method of dealing with his night fears that we incorporate into our nightly routine even to this day. He learned that being true to himself is incredibly valuable, and his only complaint was that he could not go to this camp all summer long! I highly recommend this camp to all parents with Indigo Children. It is a blessing on many levels. —Susan Kassem
Workshops will be taught by guest lecturers who volunteer their time and experience. Our staff includes certified teachers, parents, artists and professionals who will explore these topics during the camp:
Journaling from the Heart
Personal Expression through Art
Massage for Health
2002 Camp Information
For one week during the summer, staff and campers will come together in a village model honoring the individual and strength of community. In a living and learning environment adults and children will share responsibility in creating the village’s guidelines and activities. We hope to have a 5:1 camper to staff ratio.
The Indigo Summer Camp program is organized cafeteria style to offer the children a variety of choices to suit their needs and interests. We’ll offer three workshop tracks, one for younger campers, one more suited for teens, and one that will appeal to either group. If none of the workshops spark interest, free time is scheduled throughout the day, and is always an option.
“Ground Central” is a place of quiet and balance for all who need to get away from the hustle and bustle. Here villagers can talk quietly, listen to soft music, or play games, until they’re ready to rejoin the ongoing activities.
