Frequently Asked Questions
Should I send my camper for multiple weeks of Camp Urban Adamah?
Each camp week is unique in its own way. Many families love sending their children to multiple weeks of camp. We find that more time on the farm nourishes the connections children make here.
Can I register my child for less than a full week of After-Camp extended care?
Some camp weeks do allow for Single Day After-Care. Please see registration page for details.
How do I transport my child to and from camp?
Campers must be dropped off and picked up at the farm. We encourage carpooling! One of the Camp Urban Adamah staff will sign campers in and out each day.
Do you provide snacks?
Yes. Each day we will provide healthy, kosher, organic, vegetarian snacks. Campers should bring their own lunch. Campers should also bring their own reusable water bottle, which they can refill on site.
What happens when it rains?
We love rain on the farm, and offer several covered spaces so that campers can continue being engaged in camp activities during rain. Campers are expected to bring rain gear (rain boots and rain jackets) so that they can also enjoy going on rain walks and playing in puddles. We are happy to help your camper change clothes if they get uncomfortably wet throughout the day.
Is there a bathroom at the farm?
We have full-service bathrooms on site with running water and flush toilets. Please note that all children enrolled in our Sprouts week must be fully potty trained.
What should campers bring with them each day?
A small backpack containing: a bag lunch, water bottle, journal (with blank paper) and pen, sun hat, sunscreen and close-toed shoes (on their feet!). Please send your child with rain gear: rain boots, and a rain jacket.
We also ask you to send a change of clothes, and a small blanket and pillow for our cozy relaxation time. Please label all items with your child’s name.
What is the level of Jewish observance at camp?
Camp Urban Adamah is welcoming and accommodating for a wide variety of Jewish backgrounds (including campers who aren’t Jewish!). All ingredients for snacks prepared and served at camp are certified kosher. Jewish content at camp is thoughtfully incorporated and no prior Jewish background or knowledge is assumed or required. Please check out Jewish Tradition at Camp Urban Adamah and feel free to be in touch with any further questions.
Is there a waitlist for sessions that are already full?
Yes. To add your child to the waitlist, register as usual using the waitlist option.
