Welcome to Camp Gan Israel! A part of the largest and fastest growing network of Jewish day camps in the world.

The mission of CGI is to instill Jewish values in children of all Jewish backgrounds and all levels of observance. We aim to make Judaism accessible, fun and comfortable for everyone.

CGI 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.

Special events for the entire family are part of our rich, exciting schedule, including a Family Shabbat get-together. Our camp calendar and our weekly newsletters will keep you up to date with all our exciting activities.
