Finally! An Atlanta Jewish day camp that provides the exciting activities, creates the lifelong friendships, and facilitates the character-building experiences of Jewish overnight camp – and lets your child sleep at home!
In the City Camp is NOT a specialty camp. It's a day camp that follows an overnight camp model so campers who attend for multiple weeks get the most out of our program - lasting relationships with campers and staff, a stronger connection to Judaism, and a "summer home" comfort that encourages them to try new things. Every week brings new activities, new field trips, and new Shabbat celebrations.
After the summer of 2011, In the City Camp executive director, Eileen Snow Price, was tired of schlepping her four kids across town each day to attend Jewish summer camp. But as a former JCC day camper and Camp Barney Medintz camper and counselor, she understood how valuable a Jewish camp experience was for her kids. Unable to find a Jewish day camp that captured the best parts of the summer experience she had and wanted for her kids, Eileen did what any good Jewish mom would do – she started her own camp!
To create strong Jewish friendships, nurture personal growth, and inspire a meaningful connection to the Jewish community and Israel.
Our approach to Jewish day camping is based on the best practices of the most successful Jewish overnight camps in the country. Our leadership hand selected their most impactful personal summer camp experiences and added to them elements they wish their camp had included to create a best-of-the-best curriculum that fosters the personal growth, social development, and Jewish education of our campers.
In the City Camp provides a culturally Jewish experience for campers of all affiliations and Jewish backgrounds. Your child will learn about his or her connection to the Jewish community and the State of Israel in a positive, informal, fun, and age-appropriate manner.
One of the most unique parts about In the City Camp is its belief that campers should have input into the way they spend their days. Though all campers participate in core activities like morning song, Shabbat oneg, and field trips, In the City Camp allows the campers themselves to select the activities they want to pursue during each of the four daily activity periods – and we’ve got something for everyone.
