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

At Gan Israel, campers participate in various sports activities, receive expert coaching and enjoy a wide array of recreational activities. Our sports coaches are professional physical education instructors who teach with patience, guidance and encouragement. New for the Summer of 2014 will be unique skill-building instructions in soccer and basketball. Individual and group training will allow each camper to end the summer a better athlete. Our focus on good sportsmanship and selfconfidence makes everyone a winner!
Swimming Instructions
Swimming training and technique improvement are under the guidance of Red Cross Water Safety Instructors. Each camper will be tested at the onset of the summer and placed in training groups for personal and group instruction. Our goal is to utilize the swimming time at camp to improve the campers’ swimming skills and motivate them for greater aquatic ability. Rest assure that safety is priority #1.
