Must campers wear a camp T-shirt every day?
We require that all campers wear a Camp Gan Israel T-shirt on trips days. Each camper should purchase a T-shirt before camp begins. Since all camp staff and campers wear camp shirts, we are instantly recognizable to each other. Camp shirts will be available for purchase before the start of camp.

How does my camper find a lost item?
Please mark all belongings with your camper's name. Lost & Found items are available each week. Please contact us regarding specific items.

How do I arrange to pick up my camper during the camp day?
If you have to pick up your camper during the day, please notify our office. Once we are aware of your arrival time, we can arrange to have your camper ready for you. Please note that campers will only be released to their guardian unless there is written permission.

What if my child does not want to participate in a particular activity?
No camper will be forced to participate in any activity.

How religious is Camp Gan Israel?
CGI is a totally non-judgmental environment made up of campers from all backgrounds. An individual's level of observance is not stressed. All children enjoy a shared Jewish spirit through songs and projects.

What does my camper need to bring each day?
Campers should bring a sack lunch and two snacks. (Please send only dairy or pareve lunches, no glass please). Water as well as additional snacks are provided to the campers. Campers only need a bathing suit and towel on swimming days. Please apply sunscreen at home.
