CAMP FAQs

CAMP DAY

HOURS

Camp runs 5 days a week (Monday-Friday) 9:00am-4:00pm. Before and aftercare are also available. Early pick-ups or late drop-offs are highly discouraged. If you must arrive/depart outside of carpool times, please park and ring the intercom at the building’s camp entrance. An ITC staff member will meet you at the door. Parents and outside guests can not enter the building.

SCHEDULE

Each week brings something new and exciting! Campers choose activities daily – sports, ropes course, archery, gaga, arts & crafts, music, dance, drama, yoga, maker space, and more! We also offer special activities throughout the week, including inflatable water slides and on-site field trips. Fridays are for celebrating Shabbat with special programs and camper awards.

SWIMMING

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will not have swimming this summer. However, we will have many huge inflatable water slides to help our campers cool off!

DETAILED INFORMATION

In May, we will send you a parent handbook. On Thursdays, before each week of camp, you will receive a detailed email so you and your camper are fully prepared.

LUNCH + SNACKS

ITC does not provide lunch. Please send one lunch (no restrictions), at least two snacks, and a refillable water bottle. Campers can purchase individually packaged Kosher snacks at the canteen for $1 per item.

FIELD TRIPS

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will not leave campus this summer for field trips. However, ITC will bring special fun activities to camp each week!

BUNKING

CAMPER GROUPS

Campers are placed in bunks by grade. Each group is no larger than 15 children. These cohorts stay together as a unit throughout the day. We accept only one bunk request on the registration form. Additions/edits after registration are not accepted. Bunk requests are NOT guaranteed.

HOW WILL CAMPERS GET TO CHOOSE THEIR ACTIVITIES FOR THE DAY IF THEY ARE REQUIRED TO STAY WITHIN THEIR COHORT?
Campers will choose activities each morning, just as they have done in previous years. Each bunk has a few choices per peulot/activity period. Counselors lead some activities in bunk rooms. Specialists lead others outside or in public spaces that we sanitize between cohorts (i.e., the gaga pit and ropes course are cleaned and sanitized between each cohort use).

CAN YOU TELL ME WHO IS REGISTERED THE SAME WEEK AS MY CHILD? 
We do not share camper information for privacy reasons but are happy to tell you if other kids from your child’s school are registered. Our campers come from every school and synagogue in Atlanta, and MANY do not know others on their first day. We announce bunk placements by email the Thursday before your camper’s first week of camp. We also email a camp directory by bunk each week, including families who agree to be listed.

CAMPER-TO-COUNSELOR RATIO

We maintain a 5:1 ratio minimum.

REGISTRATION

PAYMENTS

CAN I MAKE PAYMENTS?

A non-refundable $50/camper deposit ($20 registration fee + $30 security fee), as well as $50/registered week per camper, is required at signup.

ARRIVING & DEPARTING

 IS BUS TRANSPORTATION AVAILABLE?

As of now, we are not offering bus services.

You can make changes by emailing campoffice@inthecitycamps.org or texting 404-698-1134. We do not accept changes after 5:00 pm the Sunday before your child attends camp. 

BEFORE/AFTER CARE TIMES & PRICES

CARPOOL INFORMATION

There is signage directing you for carpooling. The camp staff greets arriving campers every morning. Please display the carpool sign in your window with your camp family number written on it for afternoon pick-up.

CAN MY CHILD BE PICKED UP BY SOMEONE OTHER THAN MYSELF AND/OR ANOTHER PRIMARY GUARDIAN?

Yes, as long as that person has your camp family number to provide at pick-up. This also applies to pick-up at after-care. You are not required to inform us if someone else is picking up your child.

MEDICAL

HEALTH FORMS

There are medical questions on the camp registration form and the Camper Insight Form (sent in the spring). Current immunization records, plus documents for food allergies and medication taken during camp hours, are needed by your camper’s first day. 

CAN ITC ACCOMMODATE CHILDREN WITH PEANUT OR OTHER LIFE-THREATENING ALLERGIES?
Yes, but In the City Camps is NOT a nut-free environment. We do not serve or sell any food that contains peanuts. All campers wear allergy bracelets with all allergies listed. We train staff in proper allergy protocols.

COVID-19 POLICY
Summer 2022, all age-eligible summer campers, staff, and invited guests must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as defined by the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices and the American Academy of Pediatrics. This includes boosters, as indicated.
