The 2022 Fellowship Is Now Live!

Summer Camp

2022 Summer Camp Is On!

During summer camp we play, plant, sing, work, and get to know life on an urban farm. We get our hands dirty in the field, and we enjoy the fruits of our labors — fresh, delicious, organic produce! Through group-building challenges and project-based learning, we learn about the natural world and explore community, teamwork, and the interconnectedness of all things. Sprouts Camp is for 3 – 5 year olds and Roots camp is for rising 1 – 6 graders. The CIT program is open to select rising 7 – 9 graders. 

What Happens At Summer Camp?​​

Daily activities at Summer Camp include gardening, feeding chickens and collecting eggs, music and stories, farm-to-fork food preparation with our bicycle powered blender and solar oven, arts and crafts, nature connection activities, and more. We do everything through the lens of Jewish tradition and storytelling, whether it be through our shomrei adamah farm activities, or eco-mitzvot songs. Each day, campers enjoy time with their own age-specific groups, choose their own afternoon free-choice specialty with campers of all ages, and experience all-camp games. We open and close every day as a whole camp community with circle time, songs, storytelling, and acts of love and kindness.

* Sprouts Camp includes 40 minutes of relaxation — a time for campers to lay down and nap, listen to stories and songs, and practice mindfulness.

In order to make this program possible during COVID-19, Urban Adamah is taking on a degree of operational and financial risk. Due to our inability to predict COVID-19 and air quality-related on-site camp day cancellations — and the subsequent shift to virtual programming — we are not able to provide any refunds after June 1, neither complete nor prorated, and unfortunately, will not be able to make any exceptions. As noted, we will still offer programming, however it will be through the zoom platform.

WE ARE COVID-19 READY

All eligible campers age 5+ must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at least two weeks prior to the start of camp. All campers age 12+ must have received a booster in addition to initial vaccination. Proof of vaccination will be required on the first day of camp. All camp staff are required to be fully vaccinated with a booster shot.

All campers and staff are required to wear masks, and will hand-sanitize and wash hands frequently! We ask kiddos to bring all their own snacks and lunch for health and safety reasons. Our cleaning practices will include regular bathroom cleanings, equipment sanitized and disinfected before use each day, individual places to store camper belongings, and plenty of hand sanitizer, hand washing, and self-applied sunscreen!

Camp activities will remain outdoors or in an open outdoor tent. On the occasion of extreme weather, camp groups may spend short periods of time indoors with open windows.

We will take all staff and campers’ temperatures upon arrival to the farm. Staff and campers will be required to wear a mask at all times during the day, except for when eating or drinking or as contraindicated per CDC recommendations.

If displaying any symptoms of illness including a fever, cough, runny nose, or others, campers may not attend camp for a minimum of 72 hours. If symptoms resolve within 72 hours, the staff member or participant will be admitted back to camp upon a successful health check and negative COVID-19 test. If a child or staff member develops symptoms while at camp, they will be sent home.

Please send your camper in a comfortable, breathable mask each day with an extra mask in their backpack.

Positive COVID-19 Result:

Camp Urban Adamah’s COVID-19 Policies are quickly adapting as the pandemic shifts and we learn more about the virus. Updated protocol regarding COVID-19 exposure and positive cases will be released shortly. Please see below for 2021 Camp Urban Adamah protocol:

If any staff member, child, or anyone within their social bubble, tests positive for COVID-19 or comes in contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19, they will not be able to return to camp for 2 weeks, and until providing a negative COVID-19 test result for them and infected person, per the CDC guidelines.

Additionally, the program pod this person was in will move from in-person to remote programming for 2 weeks, and until every returning member provides a negative COVID-19 test result. The exception to this rule is if a positive COVID-19 result was obtained prior to contact with anyone else in the pod.

Air Quality
We will be closely monitoring air quality each day camp is in session. We ask that you provide your child with an N-95, or other smoke filtering mask for each day of camp, in the event that smoke begins to impact air quality during camp time. In the event of poor air quality, we will restrict activities in the following ways:

  • Air Quality Is Moderate (AQI 51 – 100)
    No restrictions on activities. Counselors monitor kids with asthma or other respiratory problems, as gathered from Camper Forms.
  • Air Quality Is Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (AQI 101 – 150+)
    Given that our programming will take place exclusively outdoors due to COVID-19 precautions, we have no option to bring the campers indoors should the AQI reach this level. We will contact parents and ask for pickup within 2 hours. During these days of poor air quality, please have your phones on and stay close by to the farm, so that you are able to pick up your child if need be.

Extreme Weather
In the case of anticipated thunderstorms, camp will be canceled for the day, due to the inability to safely gather indoors during lightning storms.

We apologize for any inconvenience this policy may cause. The safety of your children is our highest priority.
