    Dear Parents,

    We hope that this letter finds you and your family safe, healthy and happy.

    As many are eagerly awaiting... Here's the CGI 2020 Update:

    Camp Gan Israel is a true labor of love for us. Each year, we have had the privilege to run this camp that brings such an incredibly fun and positive Jewish experience for the children as well as a sense of pride to our entire Jewish community.

    Our camp has had incredible growth over the years for each summer camp season.  And for good reason; Our staff, activities and camp spirit are like no other! Over the years, we have seen how even one summer has had such a transformative effect on our campers. 

    As you know, the safety and well-being of our campers, staff and families is our highest priority.  There is nothing more important to us, than keeping our campers and staff healthy and safe.

    At this time, taking everything into consideration with experts in this area,  and being that we depend on transportation and field trips off camp grounds at least four times a week, and it will be difficult to create a fun, engaging summer experience if we are limited to our building.

    In light of the situation, we have made the decision to cancel Camp Gan Israel for the summer.

    And yet, as mentioned, camp is such a crucial part of the year for our children.

    As such, we are offering a different kind of experience that we will be able to offer the best of camp in the safest way we can right now.

    We are actively thinking about other ways we can help our families this summer.

    We are looking into having a once-a-week Camp Family Experience - IN PERSON starting July 6th.

    It will be an outdoor experience with social distancing. Each family would bring their own picnic blanket and there will be a show/performance, Instructors can include science, art, music, drama, yoga, etc.

    We'd love to hear your ideas and input - please share them here by email or by phone, 905 493 9007

    Wishing everyone only good health and safety and lots of joy from your beautiful children. G-d willing, we will see everyone soon, and will look forward to an in-person CGI next summer, in good health. 

    Rabbi Tzali & Chana Borenstein
