Camp Indigo

Not only did my daughter describe it as "the best week of my life," she came away each and every day happy, confident, secure and energetically balanced. It was an incredible thing to see. If you live in the Austin area you MUST check this summer camp out for your child. – Jackie

Volunteer (and Grow) at Camp Indigo

We have a special way we work with children, encapsulated by our founder, Vanessa Stone: “The power and impact of the camp is that those who come to serve show up with a willingness to give, to grow, and to be transformed through mindful service to others. Camp Indigo inspires and supports children to experience joyful self-expression, equality, friendship with others, and a deep and loving consideration of the Whole. Camp is offered by amazing volunteers in a unique model of service.”

Camp Indigo 2018 1st Time Volunteer Registration


For volunteers, Camp Indigo can be a wonderfully heart-opening experience. We welcome volunteers from 13yrs and up (volunteers under 18 require parental permission).

We will have need for volunteers who can assist with the children’s groups and activities during the camp days, and possibly run activities for the children. We’ll also have need for pre-and during camp coordination, some of this is admin related as well as tasks/errands for camp operations, prep, and post-camp organization.

Camp Indigo is powered by inspired volunteers from all walks of life. Are you a teacher, musician, artist, performer, gardener, yoga teacher, dancer, builder, inventor, or juggler? Do you have a skill or knowledge that you’d like to share with children? Apply to volunteer at Camp Indigo!

Thanks ever so much for your desire to serve at Camp Indigo!

  • I highly recommend Camp Indigo for all children. It is a positive, uplifting and amazing experience. The positive effects from camp will ripple out into your family for years to come. Seriously. As a mother to a child that has gone there for many years and as a former counselor at Camp Indigo, I have an inside look. Actually, it cannot even be summed up in words everything they do for children and the community. Just get involved however you can.

    –Jessica A.
  • I just want to say a quick THANK YOU to everyone involved in this great camp! My daughter Isabella (on the bongos) is having an amazing time! This is the perfect camp for her!

  • As described on their website Camp Indigo is an art camp, music camp & dance camp all mixed into one amazing, fun-filled Austin Summer Camp. But from a parents perspective it is SO much deeper than that. Not only did Gracie describe it as the best week of my life. She came away each and everyday, happy, confident, secure and energetically balanced. It was an incredible thing to see.  If you live in the Austin Area you MUST check this out for your child. If you can volunteer or donate, you absolutely should. Gracie is begging me to enroll her in every session next summer!

    Thank you Camp Indigo and the Amala Foundation for making this possible!
