Recreational swimming and water sports, with great emphasis on swimming instruction in full sized swimming pools, are a delightful element of the camp schedule. All aquatic activities are under constant careful supervision of trained, experienced and certified Red Cross Lifeguards. Safety is our primary concern.

On trip days and the 9-day mourning period there will be no swimming.


Camp Gan Israel is proud to introduce our newest partners, YMCA of Randolph. YMCA is famous for their individual attention, quality and experienced staff. The Kiddie Division (kids from 3-5) will be swimming at YMCA of Randolph on Dover Chester Rd. Swimming takes place Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  All other days the Kiddie division will be having water sports in the Pre-school playground behind the school building.


Children will be swimming at the County College of Morris. Camp Gan Israel strives to maintain small manageable classes, individual attention and highly trained instructors. Lifeguards will be on duty during the class to monitor the area for the safety of each individual student.
