In its August 8, 2014 issue, The Atlanta Jewish Times recognized In the City Camp Director, Eileen Price, as one of 40 Atlanta Jewish leaders under 40. We’re so proud! Congrats, Eileen, and thanks for creating In the City Camp!
The June issue of Atlanta INtown features (on the cover!) In the City Camp and Jewish Kids Groups in an article about the growth of the intown Atlanta Jewish population. Only one correction to note – Camp now has almost 300 campers registered!
