Q: Why is ITC moving to a new location for Summer 2023?
A: Due to ongoing construction on The Weber School campus and concerns about safety and security, ITC has decided to move to a new location for the upcoming 2023 summer season.
Q: Where will ITC be held for Summer 2023?
A: ITC will be held at AJA (Atlanta Jewish Academy) for Summer 2023, located at 5200 Northland Dr, Atlanta, GA 30342.
Q: Will there be any changes to the ITC Kids Camp or Tween Academy programming due to the new location?
A: No! We are committed to providing the same level of excitement, adventure, and Jewish community that you have come to expect from ITC. We are working diligently to ensure a smooth transition to the new location. Over the coming weeks, we will share more information about the new campus, amenities, and programming. Stay tuned!
Q: Will the new location affect the safety and security of campers?
A: Not at all! Safety and well-being are always our top priority, and we are confident that AJA will provide a secure and welcoming environment for all of our campers. ITC will continue to adhere to our high standards for physical and emotional security. Armed security will be provided daily AJA. Additionally, we partner with CHRIS180 to ensure that there are social workers for each unit, every day of camp.
Q: Will bus transportation change due to the new location?
A: Yes! There will be a new bus route offered from Dunwoody Village that will go directly to AJA. ITC is also adding a bus stop at the Abernathy Publix to accommodate anyone living near The Weber School.
Q: Who can I contact if I have further questions or concerns?
A: If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. You can contact us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), phone (404-698-1134), or through our website (www.inthecitycamps.org). We will be happy to assist you in any way we can.
Camp runs 5 days a week (Monday-Friday) 9:00am-4:00pm. Before and aftercare are also available daily starting at 7:30am and ending at 6:00pm.
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.
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.
We will have many large inflatable water slides to help our campers cool off, as well as water play!
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. However, we do provide one (1) canteen snack a day. Please send lunch (no restrictions), snacks, and a refillable water bottle. Campers can purchase individually packaged Kosher snacks at the canteen for $1 per item.
Each week, ITC brings to campus amazing programming, in lieu of taking campers off the property. Rising 4th and 5th grade campers might take off campus field trips. Tween Academy campers travel each week to participate in volunteer activities around Atlanta in partnership with Repair the World.
Rising Kindergarten and First Grades = Nitzanim Unit (Seedlings)
Rising Second and Third Grades = Chaverim Unit (Friends)
Rising Fourth and Fifth Grades = Tayarim Unit (Travelers)
*No half-day or Pre-K registration available this summer
Campers are placed in bunks by grade. Each group is no larger than 18 children. We accept only one bunk request on the registration form. We do our best to accommodate the bunk request but can not guarantee.
CAN YOU TELL ME WHO IS REGISTERED THE SAME WEEK AS MY CHILD?
For privacy reasons, we do not share camper information. However, we 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. Each week we also email a camp directory (by bunk) which includes families who agree to be listed.
We maintain a 6:1 ratio minimum.
The entire balance of camp fees due must be paid no later than Thursday, June 1st, 2023. Accounts with balances as of June 2nd, 2023, will forfeit any Early Bird or Springtime discount that may have been available at time of initial registration. Registrations occurring on or after June 2nd, 2023 must be paid in full at time of registration.
Camper families have four payment options:
Deposit and Camp Fees
In the City Camps will honor refund requests as follows:
DO YOU OFFER FINANCIAL SUPPORT?
Of course we do! ITC wants to make camp affordable for all our families and never wants finances to get in the way of your child having a magical experience. Scholarships are available to help make camp more affordable for everyone! The scholarship application opens January 8, 2023. Scholarships are given on a first come first serve basis. You must apply for camp to be able to apply for a scholarship. Questions? Email email@example.com
Log into your camp account and click on CAMPER APPLICATION. Click your child’s name and scroll through the application, adding the desired weeks when prompted. Continue to the final payment page to complete. Or, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we are happy to assist you!
HOW CAN I VIEW THE WEEKS MY CHILD IS REGISTERED?
Log into your camp account or on the Campanion App and click on CAMPER INFORMATION.
There are medical questions on the camp registration form and the Camper Insight Form (sent in the spring). Current immunization records, plus documentation regarding 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 and do everything to keep our campers safe!
COVID and Vaccine Policy
In the City Camps have safely run camps during the Summers of 2020, 2021, and 2022 with minimal COVID-19 spread. We take COVID-19-related decisions seriously and consider national and local data as well as information from the CDC, local board of health, and state guidelines.
For Summer 2023, we strongly recommend that campers and staff be fully vaccinated before attending camp. Vaccines are suggested but NOT required this summer.
Campers and staff are NOT permitted at camp if any of the following apply:
If your child has a fever or illness while at camp, you must pick up your child from camp.
NOTE: In the City Camps reserves the right to change our vaccine requirements at any time to protect the safety of our camper population. Please note that in the unfortunate event that we experience a positive COVID-19 event at camp, the steps we take in response as part of our safety protocols may differ regarding vaccinated versus unvaccinated campers. Therefore, if your camper still needs to be vaccinated, we strongly urge you to consider fully vaccinating your camper as soon as possible to ensure everyone can attend camp safely.
