ABOUT US

OUR
MISSION

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.

OUR
BIG DREAM

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!

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, 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 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.
