In the City Camps (ITC) is thrilled to introduce our Immersive Camps, an innovative and engaging addition to our summer lineup, exclusively for our Chaverim (rising 2nd and 3rd graders) and Tayarim (rising 4th and 5th graders). These Immersive Camps offer a unique opportunity for campers in these age groups to delve deeply into specific areas of interest, enriching their camp experience with focused exploration and learning.

Whether it’s the charm of the Harry Potter universe, the exciting world of technology and coding, or the vibrant spirit of Taylor Swift's music, our Immersive Camps are designed to cater to a variety of passions. Each camp allows campers to spend two peulot (activity periods) or half the day each day engaged in their chosen immersive theme, while still providing the flexibility to choose two other peulot for the remaining half of the day. This blend ensures a balanced experience, combining the ITC choice-based model for half the day with in-depth exploration in the immersive theme for the other half. Campers get the best of both worlds, enjoying a variety of engaging activities along with their specialized interests.

This special program comes with an additional cost of $95.00 per week, providing campers with an exclusive and intensive experience in their area of interest, along with the freedom to explore other activities. It's a perfect option for children eager to explore a specific topic in greater depth, all within the supportive and dynamic environment of ITC.

Not interested in the Immersive Camps? No problem! Campers who prefer a more varied daily schedule can choose their activities during the same time slots. This flexibility ensures that every camper at ITC has the opportunity to experience summer their way, whether it's through deep-diving into a focused theme or exploring a range of activities. At In the City Camps, everyone wins, with options to suit every interest and style of learning. Enroll your child today and let them discover, learn, and grow in the way that best fits them!
