PROGRAM DETAILS

At In the City Camps, our goal is to continue inspiring Jewish children as they transition into their tween years and beyond. After extensive research, parent feedback, and a successful pilot program in Summer 2018, we’re excited to announce a new summer specialty camp—Camp Mogul.

You can participate in Camp Mogul in two ways:

CAMP MOGUL ON THE ROAD

Date Time Location
June 3-7, 2019 9:00am-4:00pm Intown at Morningside Elementary School

Camp Mogul On The Road is offered for one week and introduces 7th-9th graders to why Atlanta is such a hot spot for businesses today. We’ll take a deep dive into Atlanta businesses, the Jewish community, and how they’ve grown as a direct result of each other. This week is a great foundation to the Summer Entrepreneur Academy or is a wonderful, immersive experience on its own.

Every day, campers will meet in the morning to discuss the history and businesses of Jewish Atlanta and what to expect from the day ahead. Then, we’ll hit the rails (avoiding traffic!) with a Marta Pass and learn first-hand how to navigate around Atlanta. We’ll visit places along the Marta route to better understand the importance of business locations and how they’re relevant to public transportation. Along the way we’ll stop at places like*:

  • Midtown Atlanta
  • Downtown Atlanta
  • The Beltline
  • Five Points

At the end of each day, we’ll all head back to Morningside Elementary to debrief and discuss what’s ahead for the next day.

*Sites are subject to change before the start of camp.

CAMP MOGUL SUMMER ENTREPRENEUR ACADEMY

Choose one of the following weeks:

Date Time Location
June 17-21, 2019 9:30am-4:30pm Buckhead Business District
June 24-28, 2019 9:30am-4:30pm Buckhead Business District
July 8-12, 2019 9:30am-4:30pm Cobb Galleria Area
July 15-19, 2019 9:30am-4:30pm Cobb Galleria Area

Camp Mogul Summer Entrepreneur Academy is offered over four weeks (campers may choose one of the four) and is created to unlock the potential of Jewish tweens (rising 7th-9th graders) by sparking a passion for entrepreneurship. Our campers experience the excitement and challenge of bringing a real, profitable business to fruition in just five short days! Along the way, we’ll help them build skill-sets to launch their venture, confidently present an idea, understand current events, and consider how business might play into their future — all under the overarching umbrella of Judaism.

To accomplish this, entrepreneurs will:

  • Discuss innovative Israeli companies.
  • Hear from Jewish Atlanta business owners about the role Jewish values play in their businesses and daily lives.
  • Visit Jewish-run businesses for first-hand entrepreneurial experiences.
  • Connect how business decisions can be infused with Jewish middot (characteristics) each day.

The week-long program culminates with a Shark Tank-style presentation to investors for a cash prize. Give us a week, and we’ll give back so much more!

SNEAK PEEK OF THE WEEK:

Monday (Curiosity / תונרקתסה / Histakranut): Entrepreneurs meet their teams, agree on a business idea, conduct market research, create a first budget draft, and make a shopping list.

Wednesday (Perseverance and Grit / חצנ / Netzach): During this exciting day, teams create a presentation and pitch their ideas for seed funds from a Rockstar panel of investors.

Thursday (Calm and Composure / שפנה תחונמ / Menuchat Ha’Nefesh): It’s go time! Teams launch their products and sell them on-site at camp.

Friday (Gratitude / תרכה בוטה / Hacarat ha’Tov): Today we celebrate accomplishments from the week. Entrepreneurs also create a mobile app, participate in a stock market simulation, and more!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

CAN MY CHILD SIGN UP FOR MULTIPLE WEEKS?
During the Summer 2019, each camper can attend Camp Mogul On The Road plus one week of Camp Mogul Summer Entrepreneur Academy.

WHO RUNS THE PROGRAMS?
A Program Director with several years of post-college experience, in addition to exceptional college students (mostly Business majors), will lead the group. Together they will go through the process of launching their new businesses.

CAN MY CHILD SELECT TEAMMATES?
Yes! We love to see friends participating together. Please indicate the friend’s name on the registration form. Groups of three or four generally work as a closed team; however, groups of two friends should expect more entrepreneurs in their group. We try to keep teams close in age so we can tailor the curriculum and experience. If siblings or friends are more than two years apart, we may place them on separate teams.

CAN MY SON/DAUGHTER WORK ON A BUSINESS IDEA THAT THEY HAVE BEEN PURSUING AT HOME?
We ask that each entrepreneur comes to camp with an open mind. The entire team of three or four students must be in enthusiastic agreement about the business idea. However, students regularly take the skills learned at camp and apply them to grow their own business. If they have an idea they’d like to explore more, we encourage you to check out our partners, Break Into Business who offer additional opportunities for young entrepreneurs including their Final Pitch event and Start Up Club.

MY SON/DAUGHTER REQUIRES SPECIAL ASSISTANCE AND/OR DISCIPLINARY INTERVENTION IN A REGULAR CLASSROOM – IS CAMP MOGUL A GOOD FIT?
Unfortunately, we’re not yet equipped to support significant special accommodations at Camp Mogul. Although our staff to student ratios are extremely low, campers are asked to accomplish a lot in one week. If your student has an IEP, or you have concerns about their ability to participate, we strongly suggest reaching out to us prior to registration.
Disciplinary problems will be handled in a “three-strikes” manner (parents are notified for each strike). Students are asked to leave the program without a tuition refund after strike three.

Join us at Camp Mogul!
