Summer is right around the corner. Do you know what your tween is going to do when school is out?
Here are 8 reasons your 11- to 14-year-old should come to In the City Camp’s Tween Camp this summer.
1. Tweens get to choose the activities they pursue each day. That means they can do something athletic one hour, something crafty the next, and try something brand new during the third activity hour. Or they can be sporty/creative all three hours – it’s up to them! They will also have plenty of time to just hang out with new friends.
2. FUN community service projects, leadership opportunities, and Jewish programming.
3. Tweens develop their own custom programming. In past years, they have created videos, staged a flash mob, and planned activities for the younger Kid campers.
4. The Tween Camp program is completely separate from the Kid Camp program. Tweens have their own house, their own activity schedules, and their own trips.
5. Tween Camp is limited to 24 campers each week. This small group size facilitates close friendships and allows the tweens to get around easily to all their awesome trips. Which brings us to…
6. Tweens depart for a field trip every Thursday morning which extends into an overnight every Thursday night. Lakes, museums, amusement parks, community service, sporting events, hiking, camping out, tree climbing – you name it, we’re doing it!
7. Camp headquarters is on the Emory University campus. The facilities are truly incredible. Just wait ‘till your tween sees the aquatics center, soccer fields, and climbing wall.
8. Tween Camp staff is just plain awesome.
- Our program director, Amanda Cinnamon, a GHA alum, is back for another summer with In the City Camp. Prior to serving as head girls’ counselor for us last year, she was a dance instructor and head of performing arts at Camp Stone. She’s currently a Junior at Stern College in New York City.
- We have some amazing counselors including Gavi Abraham, GHA’s soccer and basketball coach, and Simon Italiaander, a favorite staff member from 2013.
We could go on and on about all the fun stuff we have planned, and we’re more than happy to do that if you want to contact us with questions.
For now, sign up before prices increase next Thursday, May 1!
