ABOUT US

WHY WE EXIST.

OUR
MISSION

The mission of In the City Camps is to create lifelong friendships, personal growth, and a meaningful connection to the Jewish community and Israel in an affordable, accessible, day camp that acknowledges the realities of today’s modern Jewish family.

WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE?

SIX KEY ELEMENTS OF ITC

No matter where In the City Camps takes place, they come together to deliver a Jewish camp experience you won’t find anywhere else.

JEWISH CULTURE & VALUES

In the City Camps provides a culturally Jewish, values-based experience for Jewish campers of all backgrounds. Your child will sing Hebrew songs, make a tzedakah (charity) box at arts & crafts, bring home challah they learned to bake, perform mitzvot (good deeds) through volunteer projects, and cook some of Israel’s most delicious foods – all while strengthening 21st-century skills and connecting with Jewish children and staff from all over Atlanta.

JEWISH ROLE MODEL STAFF

When you send your child to In the City Camps, your camper will spend the day with mature, energetic, trained Jewish counselors they will look up to from day one. Our counselors are vital to the success of our program. We select, train, and nurture responsible young adults who embody the traits you want to see in your child. Because we understand the importance of a positive Jewish role model, our camp counselors are Jewish.

WELCOMING ENVIRONMENT

In the City Camps’ Jewishly diverse camper and staff makeup is one of the things that makes our camp community so unique. For many of our campers, In the City Camps is their first Jewish experience. Other campers may celebrate the holidays, go to Jewish day school, or attend Sunday school. Some campers have one Jewish parent, and some have two. Some have two mommies or two daddies. Some come to camp with physical, emotional, and medical challenges. Your child will build solid Jewish friendships in our unique environment that will last a lifetime.

CHOICE -BASED ACTIVITY

In the City Camps truly has something for everyone. Basketball, magic, swimming, 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.

OVERNIGHT CAMP FEEL

We’re not babysitters or daycare. In the City Camps offers experiential and educational opportunities for children. Color War, s’mores, cool Jewish counselors, canteen, bunk time, lasting friendships, and more…all the best parts of Jewish overnight camp in a day camp package.

A COMMITMENT TO SAFETY

Physical and emotional safety is our number one priority at In the City Camps. Physically, we work with experts to implement security measures at each camp location. Counselors track and accompany campers to all activities. Lifeguards supervise campers at the pool. Emotionally, counselors practice empathetic listening to diffuse conflicts and report any concerns to camp leadership. Our head staff communicates directly with parents to address concerns.

OUR
HISTORY

In the City Camps’ CEO, Eileen Snow Price, participated in many Jewish experiences growing up – from Israel trips to Jewish day school. But it was her summer camp experience that ultimately drew her to the Jewish community. 

By 2011, Eileen was married with four kids. She sent her oldest two to Jewish overnight camp. Her son loved it, but her daughter refused to go ever again. Aware of the positive impact Jewish camp had on her life and the lives of so many around her, Eileen did what any Jewish mom would do – she created a camp that delivered the proven benefits of Jewish overnight camp – lifelong friendships, personal growth, and a connection to the Jewish community and Israel – in an affordable, accessible day camp package!
