Gan Israel is much more than a physical break from the school routine and winter activities. It’s a comprehensive program designed to strengthen the body and soul. It provides your child with a rich and wholesome summer vacation of fun and excitement along with friendship and meaningful educational experiences. 

Child development is the most significant ingredient in a healthy camp experience. This is why our staff is the real secret to our success. Our experienced counselors are known for their personal warmth and ability to care for each child as an individual. Each counselor is a role model for our children, promising them friendship which will last forever! Their love for the children is surpassed only by the children’s love for them.

Camp Gan Israel is directed by Mrs. Esther Lifshitz. We bring in experienced out-of-town staff specifically for camp.

Gan Israel campers are imbued with a deep sense of pride in their Jewish heritage and a love for the land of Israel. Weekly Judaic themes are taught through exciting activities, stories, songs, games and contests, which are part of the unique Gan Israel experience. Combined with group discussions and educational programs, these events bring to life the beauty and values of our tradition. 
Activities & Special Events 
Our weekly program is enhanced with talent shows, drama, sports challenges, carnivals, Israeli dancing, dress-up days, late-nights, bunk competion, Shabbos parties, challah baking, and oh... so much more. Under the direction of our experienced crafts instructors, campers will have the opportunity to design and take home some wonderful Judaica projects.

While we believe that the in-camp experience is a most rewarding and inspiring aspect of camp, we offer outings that combine fun, exploration and learning. Some of past year's outings include the Fire Station, fruit picking, a petting farm and Wahooz.

We hope that by the time camp arrives, the pandemic will be largely behind us. 
If there is a pandemic in the summer, we will ensure  a safe, in-person, fun, and proudly Jewish experience. That's the summer you and your children can expect.
