What is the Chemical Mix to Make Colored Flames?

Does anyone know what you mix to throw on a campfire to make color flames? I think it's just household products, but what? I can buy packs, but they are expensive Thanks.

I have never done this, but my sister did. She said they use a section of a copper pipe, with a section of garden hose around it. They throw it into the fire and say it burns green.
