In the City Camps (ITC) delivers the proven results of Jewish overnight camp – lifelong friendships, personal growth, and a meaningful connection to the Jewish community and Israel – in an affordable, accessible, day camp package that acknowledges the realities of today’s modern Jewish family.
Rising Pre-K to 9th graders will do it all - sports, water play, art, ropes course, music, weekly field trips, dance, cooking, and more! With three locations in Intown, Sandy Springs, and North Fulton, ITC offers free bus transportation from many convenient locations, as well as before and aftercare. Many programs are available for various age groups:
- Full-day camp for rising K-6th grade: Our day camp runs Monday-Friday, 9 am-4 pm. Our progressive programming allows campers to choose their own daily activities from over 50 activity choices. On Wednesdays, all campers attend a super cool field trip. Rising 4th-6th graders get to go on another field trip on Tuesdays!
- Half-day camp for rising Pre-K to 1st grade: Our littlest campers get to enjoy camp from 9 am-1 pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday. This is perfect for those who need a shorter day.
- ITC Away at Camp for rising 3rd-5th grade: This program allows campers to build connections and friendships with counselors and peers at ITC before traveling to overnight camp together for a few nights at either Camp Coleman or Camp Ramah Darom.
- Camp Mogul for rising 7th-9th grade: Campers experience the excitement and challenge of bringing a real, profitable business to fruition in just five days — building skill-sets to launch their venture, present an idea, and consider how a business might play into their future — all under the overarching umbrella of Judaism.
No matter where In the City Camps (ITC) takes place, six elements come together to deliver a Jewish camp experience you won’t find anywhere else. With so many Jewish camp options in Atlanta, why send your child to ITC?
- Our Culturally Jewish, Values-Based Program ITC provides a culturally Jewish, values-based experience for Jewish campers of all backgrounds. Your child will sing Hebrew songs, make a tzedakah (charity) box at arts & crafts, bring home challah they learned to bake, perform mitzvot (good deeds) through volunteer projects, and cook some of Israel’s most delicious foods – all while strengthening 21st-century skills and connecting with Jewish children and staff from all over Atlanta.
- So Many Choice-Based Activity Options! ITC truly has something for everyone. Basketball, magic, swimming, art, dance, hockey, cooking, nature, soccer, field trips, talent shows, archery, Shabbat programming, and so much more! Our age-appropriate programming structure encourages campers to participate in activities they love and try new things. Trained activity specialists infuse activities with Jewish values like kavod (respect) and ahava (love) while strengthening 21st-century communication, collaboration, and critical thinking skills.
- Our Welcoming, Inclusive Environment ITC’s Jewishly diverse camper and staff makeup is one of the things that makes our camp community so special. For many of our campers, ITC is their first Jewish experience. Other campers may celebrate the holidays, go to Jewish day school, or attend Sunday school. Some campers have one Jewish parent and some have two Jewish parents. Some have two mommies or two daddies. Some come to camp with physical, emotional, and medical challenges. In our extraordinary environment along with a full-time Camper Care Director, your child will build strong Jewish friendships that will last a lifetime.
- Our Impressive Jewish Role Model Staff When you send your child to ITC, you can rest assured that your camper will spend the day with mature, energetic, trained Jewish counselors he or she will look up to from day one. Our counselors are key to the success of our program. We select, train, and nurture responsible young adults who embody the traits you want to see in your child. Because we understand the importance of a positive Jewish role model, all of our camp counselors are Jewish.
- Commitment to Physical & Emotional Safety At ITC, safety, both physical and emotional, is our number one priority. Physically, we work with experts to implement security measures at each of our camp locations. Counselors track and accompany campers to all activities. Lifeguards supervise campers at the pool. Emotionally, counselors practice empathetic listening to diffuse conflicts and report any concerns to camp leadership. Our head staff communicates directly with parents to address concerns and ensure that ITC provides a safe place for all of our campers to thrive.
- A Day Camp with an Overnight Camp Feel Camp songs, bunk time, canteen, field trips, Color War, Shabbat programming, s’mores, activity variety, and cool Jewish counselors are just some of the ways ITC feels just like Jewish overnight camp! These similarities are no accident. Jewish overnight camp has been creating strong Jewish friendships, nurturing personal growth, and inspiring a meaningful connection to the Jewish community and Israel for years. Since 2012, ITC has delivered all of these benefits in an affordable, accessible day camp package that lets your child sleep at home!
