Safety and security are the number one concerns. Counselors to camper ratios are structured to maintain the highest levels of supervision. Staff members go through extensive training including CPR and first aid. Buses are well maintained and safety inspections are done daily. 




Staff are handpicked from our local community as well as from the CGI international network of teacher’s colleges, seminaries and high schools throughout the world. From Australia to Israel to London to New York, our highly trained staff bring a unique flavor and lively spirit. Counselors at Gan Israel do more than just supervise activities and maintain order. Through songs, cheers and original games and activities, the counselors form a bond with the campers that often lasts well beyond the summer experience. Click Here to find out about joining the Gan Izzy team!

Day Camp Divisions:  

Kiddie Division- Entering Kindergarten and 1st Grade

Kiddie Camp

Gan Israel’s special program for children entering Kindergarten offers an exceptional early-childhood environment. Emphasis is placed on both indoor and outdoor activities in a specially designed kindergarten setting. Aside from weekly field trips our Kiddie Camp program visits the fire house, police station and library.

Boys & Girls Division - Grades 2-5  


For Boys and Girls entering 1st -5th grades, the program has a focus on Sports, Art & Drama along with all the Dress Up days, camp fun and field trips. The campers feel the step up from Kiddie Camp as they move into our Boys and Girls Divisions. (Note: There are separate bunks and activities for boys and girls.)

Starting in 3rd grade, the program features organized sports, special field trips, overnight camping and reserved privileges. Highlights are the annual Performance and the CGI Overnight.

CIT's - Grades 6 & 7 


CIT's can volunteer at camp and gain experience. These Boys and Girls will get to run activities, help out in the art room, kitchen, at sports and create their own CIT activities for the younger campers. CIT's will also have training sessions that teach them skills of delegating, participating, team building and event coordinating.  

Junior Counselors - Grades 8 & 9 


Junior Counselors gain hand on-experience and develop unique skills learned from the Senior Counselor and staff training. JC's learn to shoulder responsibility in a responsible setting!  They have one-on-one interactions with camper and older staff members.  Junior Counselors join Senior Counselors in special activities, Nights out, and other staff events.
