Just like our campers, the leaders of In the City Camp at Emory learn something new every summer and we’re always looking for ways to make camp even better. To keep things clear and easy, here’s a summary of the biggest improvements coming your way in summer 2014.
New Website with Online Registration
As you have no doubt noticed by now, we have an amazing new website! It is now easier than ever to register for camp, sign up for before and after care, apply for a staff position, and learn about all the things that make In the City Camp at Emory so special.
Expanded Age Groups
In the City Camp at Emory now serves campers ages 5-14! Our younger campers (ages 5-10) will be part of our newly renamed Kid Camp, while our older campers (ages 11-14) will do their thing in Tween Camp.

New Camp Home Base
Beginning this summer, In the City Camp at Emory will operate out of the biggest fraternity house on Emory’s campus! The Phi Delt fraternity house is located in the heart of campus at 20 Eagle Row – right next to the athletic center and the main field. The house boasts its own outdoor basketball court, several different rooms to use for indoor activities, and plenty of porches for hanging out with new friends. We’ll also use the house for morning prayers, indoor lunches, bunk time, and arts & crafts.
Parents will drop off kids in the morning at the Phi Delt House and pick them up there on Fridays as well. Monday – Thursday pick up will remain at the Emory pool which is super close to the new house.
Huge thanks to the Marcus Hillel Center for allowing us to use their facility during our first two years!
Bring Your Own Lunch and Snack
So that we can focus on what we do best and so that campers get all the energy they need from the food they like, beginning this summer, all campers will bring their own lunch and snacks daily to camp. We will no longer provide lunch or snack to campers. Instead, we’re doubling up on fun!
Please let us know if you have any questions about these exciting updates!
