Our Staff

Gan Israel prides itself on its exceptional staff. All staff come with prior camp experience and a desire to work with kids. Bunk sizes are kept small and well staffed. Our camper to counselor ratio is better than 1 to 7 campers, and this does not include our wonderful C.I.T.’s. The funshops are run by professional instructors.

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.

Our Camp Directors have many years of day camp experience. They are the leaders of our top staff and takes great pride in our on-going, comprehensive staff training program. Their extensive experience with preschoolers through teenagers makes them valuable friends and administrators to our camp throughout the summer.
