In the City Camps’ mission is to create a nurturing environment that allows children and tweens to form lifelong friendships, create lasting memories, overcome their fears, strengthen their love and appreciation for their Jewish heritage, while cultivating the essential life skills needed to become the next generation of Jewish leaders and community role models.
We believe the Atlanta Jewish community is raising a passionate generation of doers. With the right tools, age-appropriate programming, and encouragement, these children will feel ignited to take on the work of repairing the world through social action—while having fun and making friends along the way!
No matter where In the City Camps takes place, they come together to deliver a Jewish camp experience you won’t find anywhere else.
In the City Camps truly has something for everyone: Basketball, magic, art, dance, hockey, cooking, nature, soccer, field trips, talent shows, archery, Shabbat programming, and so much more! Our age-appropriate programming structure encourages campers to participate in activities they love and try new things. Trained activity specialists infuse activities with Jewish values like kavod (respect) and ahava (love) while strengthening 21st-century communication, collaboration, and critical thinking skills.
In the City Camps’ CEO, Eileen Snow Price, participated in many Jewish experiences growing up from Israel trips to Jewish day school. But her summer camp experience proved invaluable to strongly rooting her in the Jewish community.
Eileen started In the City Camps after sending her two oldest children to Jewish overnight camp, hoping that they would have the same experience in connecting to the Jewish community as she did. While her son loved the experience and couldn’t wait to do it again, her daughter refused to return. So Eileen created a day camp that delivered the fun, meaningful, and culturally-rooted experience that overnight camp offers for children who were more comfortable in a day camp atmosphere.
Over the past ten years, Eileen has built In the City Camps to what it is today: a culturally rich and nurturing program that welcomes hundreds of campers each year from a diversity of backgrounds and helps Jewish children from across Atlanta grow strong roots in their shared background.
