Over the past few months, the Gan Israel Day Camp administration has
worked tirelessly in an attempt to put together a great summer for your
children. Unfortunately, due to a decrease in enrollment in many area day
camps, including ours, along with a substantial increase in requests for
scholarship grants, we are unable to provide the funding needed to keep
Gan Israel running for this summer.
Please understand that the Rabbinical College, as a non-profit educational
institution, runs on an annual deficit of hundreds of thousands of
dollars. This being the case, funding the camp's colossal losses is not
something that can be approved or sustained by the board of trustees. The
busses, the trips, the rental facilities. these and other essential costs
for running the camp simply cannot be covered.
While we understand that this is very late notice, rest assured that we
have spent the elapsed time attempting to overcome these problems and find
solutions. Unfortunately, the challenge proved insurmountable.
The college will be issuing full refunds within the next seven days to any
parents who have already made their deposits, cleared or in processing. If
you have not received your refund at that time, you can contact our
finance office at 973.267.9404 x 126.
We hope to offer a financially secure Gan Israel in the years to come.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and thank you for
your understanding and cooperation during this time.
