In the City Camps is excited to offer a new opportunity for campers in rising 3rd through 5th grade — ITC at Away Camp! Build connections and friendships at In the City Camps before traveling to overnight camp together.

Families will pick up campers directly at the overnight camp and receive a tour of camp.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DO I KNOW WHICH SESSION IS RIGHT FOR MY CHILD?
Both Camp Coleman and Camp Ramah Darom are Jewish summer camps, but each camp offers its own unique programming. We encourage you to check out their websites to learn more:

Camp Coleman: www.campcoleman.org
Camp Ramah Darom: www.ramahdarom.org

Camp Coleman’s session runs July 6-12 with three nights away. Campers will attend ITC on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. On Thursday, campers will come to The Weber School campus to board the bus that will take them to Camp Coleman.

Camp Ramah Darom’s session run July 13-19 with four nights away. Campers will attend ITC on Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesday, campers will come to The Weber School campus to board the bus that will take them to Camp Ramah Darom. Parents will pick-up their camper directly at Camp Ramah Darom on Sunday.

WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD PACK? HOW WILL THEIR LUGGAGE MAKE IT TO CAMP?
The week before camp, ITC will send out a packing list to ensure your camper is comfortable. Luggage will go on the bus with them to camp and come home with them on Sunday when parents pick them up directly.

HOW DOES MY CHILD GET HOME?
Families will pick up their camper on Sunday and receive a tour of the overnight camp. This is an excellent way for campers to share their experience with you and ask the overnight camp director any questions you may have.

MY CHILD HAS A FOOD ALLERGY. CAN THE OVERNIGHT CAMP MAKE ACCOMMODATIONS FOR THEM?
Yes, both Camp Coleman and Camp Ramah Darom can accommodate food allergies. You will have the opportunity to share important information about your child in a follow-up form after registration.

MY CHILD TAKES MEDICINE. HOW WILL THIS BE HANDLED AT OVERNIGHT CAMP?
Campers’ medicine will be given to the camps’ infirmaries. Certified nurses distribute medicine at meal times. You will have the opportunity to share important information about your child in a follow-up form after registration.

WILL I BE ABLE TO SPEAK WITH MY CHILD WHEN THEY ARE AT OVERNIGHT CAMP?
Part of the fun and challenge of being at overnight camp is finding independence. Campers will have the opportunity to write you a letter once at camp and you will be able to email campers at camp. We suggest writing one email that will be waiting for them at camp once they arrive and then saving all the other stories for Sunday on your car ride home!

CAN MY CHILD ATTEND BOTH AWAY CAMP SESSIONS?
Yes! Campers can attend both away camp sessions back-to-back.
