It is an experience in which children learn the importance of caring, sharing, tolerance, patience and working with others. Our program is designed to provide your child with the experience of a lifetime and to bring out the best in each child’s character and personality in a warm and spirited atmosphere.

Jewish Experience
Gan Israel campers are imbued with a deep sense of pride in their Jewish heritage and a love for the land of Israel. Weekly Judaic themes are taught through exciting activities, stories, songs, games and contests, which are part of the unique Gan Israel experience. Combined with group discussions and educational programs, these events bring to life the beauty and values of our tradition.
