Welcome to Camp Gan Israel

Camp Gan Izzy is a local summer camp where your children will enjoy days filled with spirit, joy and friendship. We enjoy a large campus, loads of on site activities, sports, arts, beach days, spirit days, field trips and more. While our campers are imbued with a deep sense of pride in their Jewish heritage, children from all walks of life are welcome.  Gan Izzy campers are known for their lively camp spirit at camp or on the go.  Camp provides daily lunches and snacks. Our staff is CPR and first aid trained.

Foundations of Gan Izzy:

• We strive to encourage campers to participate, to try their best, express
themselves, make new friends, and to be proud of their Jewish identity.

• Our belief is that strong morals and values enrich children’s lives.

• Our counselors model it-our campers live it!

• Arts and athletics programs are designed with children in mind. They are age appropriate and allow for high quality instruction.

• 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.

Our Happy Parents

Our Program

Camp Gan Israel has been providing a unique Jewish summer camp experience to our campers and families since 1996. Our specialty is building confidence, independence and friendships facilitated by a most nurturing staff and outstanding programming.

In addition to a great on-campus experience, there are also regular trips to childrens’ favorite places. Our focus on good sportsmanship and self-confidence makes everyone a winner! We work hard to keep our campers constantly engaged in a fun, safe, and Jewish environment.

Our camp is divided into bunks by age. Each bunk’s activities are catered to the needs, likes and abilities of its campers. This ensures that every camper has a fantastic experience every single day.

Our staff is busy planning the theme and schedules for the coming summer. Stay tuned for more information on our exciting plans

No camper is released without clearance from camp directors.  Campers may only be released to a parent or persons authorized to pick up the camper. Please advise the camp office in writing of a different or new pickup person.
