Creative Hunts and Games
Camp Gan Israel is known for its unique twist on fun and games.  Team building, critical thinking skills and creativity is fostered in our special camp activities.  International Day, Color War, Escape from Golus, Paper Clip Hunt are just a few of the many interactive unique games we play.

Creative Hands / Crafts
Camp Gan Israel’s innovative arts and crafts teach the children to be creative and imaginative. The crafts incorporate various themes in Jewish life as well as fun and useful projects. Campers are sure to proudly look back at the craft of their own hands well after the summer is over. 

Lights, Camera, Action!
Comedy skits, talent shows, and auction days are just a few of the programs that challenge the children to develop their innate talents.

Play ball!
Supervised by our experienced instructors, children develop sportsmanship, confidence, and the ability to enjoy all sports, including baseball, basketball, football, kickball, creative movement, and more.

CGI on the Go Fieldtrips
Gan Israel holds regular "trip days" which include theme parks, nature hiking, Indoor gyms and more. These exciting adventures allow our children to really show their true CGI spirit.

The Wetter the Better!
Camp Gan Israel is extremely proud of its swimming program where all activities are supervised by certified Red Cross lifeguards. The children cool off by going swimming daily.
