More About Our Camp

 
   

“No one puts more care into the care of your child.”

Gan Israel is much more than a physical break from the school routine. 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. 

Staff

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. Many staff members return year after year, lending experience and continuity to all programs. 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.

Gan Israel campers are imbued with a deep sense of pride in their Jewish heritage and a love for the land of Israel.
