In the City Camp offers all of the awesome activities you would expect from a top-notch summer camp (and some you might not expect!). Our well-rounded programming balances the importance of learning to work as a team with the opportunity to develop individual skills, talents, and abilities.
One of the most unique things about In the City Camp is the input our campers have in to the way they spend their days. While there are some activities, like morning song, field trips, and camp-wide Shabbat programming, in which all campers participate, our campers spend the vast majority of each day exploring areas that interest them personally and connecting with other campers who share similar interests.
Campers can pursue physical activities like martial arts, basketball, baseball, soccer, hockey, and yoga. They can mix up the day with more relaxed activities like painting, magic, science, drama, and cooking.
Swimming and Water Play
Interacting with water is an exciting (and refreshing!) part of the summer camp experience.
Two days a week, our campers have the opportunity to swim or experience a fun water activity (like a waterslide!) as one of their activity choices. All of our little swimmers are watched carefully by our staff and water safety instructor (WSI) certified lifeguards. We also have floatation devices available for more junior swimmers.
Jewish and Israeli Culture
Learning about Judaism and Israel is an important (and fun!) component of In the City Camp.
We'll experience Judaism when we make beautiful mezuzahs at arts and crafts, when we prepare challah every Friday, when we sing fun Hebrew songs each morning, when we volunteer in the community, and even when we learn about Jewish sports stars on the basketball court!
Over the course of the summer, our awesome Jewish and Israeli staff will take your children on a virtual tour of the Israel without ever leaving Atlanta! Campers may experience what it’s like to live on a kibbutz, celebrate Israel’s birthday, and learn about the Israeli Army.
While we certainly could fill our week with activities on-site at camp, it’s always fun to go on a little trip! And with so many exciting things to do just a short drive away, it’s easy to get out and explore.
Our kid campers take a full-day, off-campus field trip each week. In past summers, we have climbed to the top of Stone Mountain, tubed down the Chattahoochee River, milked goats at a farm, danced in the fountains at Centennial Park, roller-skated, and even experienced an Atlanta Hawks behind-the-scenes tour of Phillips Arena!
Our tween campers may go tree climbing, attend a Braves game, enjoy the Laser Show after hiking Stone Mountain, or travel to an area Jewish overnight camp on their weekly overnight field trip.
