Activities and Adventures

A Family Affair
Special events for the entire family are scheduled throughout the summer.They include a lively Shabbat dinner and family BBQ. Our detailed event calendars and camp newspapers keep you abreast of all your children’s activities.

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. CGI has hired an experienced arts n’ crafts instructor.

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, ice skating and more. These exciting adventures allow our children to really show their true CGI spirit.

Special Programs 

Story Theater Workshop
Educational workshops use theater as a tool for social change.

The children will develop stories into short plays. Each age group will produce a short play and present it at a grand finale.
