“This summer, camp was great!  The lunches were exciting for the children.  It included foods they really liked.  The staff was helpful, friendly & caring.  I am pleased with your whole camp program.  The kids really had a fun time.  My daughter came home singing a lot!  It’s great that you have swimming lessons twice a week, along with other varied activities.”

Smiles cost nothing
Smiles are free
But where to find the happiest grins
Are at Camp Gan Izzy!

The counselors are amazing
The activities are cool
So are the field trips
And I really like the pool!

Is that I love CGI
And that Gan Israel is the best
And I'll never say good-bye!

A world without Gan Israel is like a world without toys,
If you go to Gan Isreal you'll hear singing and noise.
Here we learn to be a Jew,
So why don't you join us too?
We go to the pool, and on fun field trips,
If you'll come to Gan Israel, I'm sure you'll love it.
So, if you're looking for excitement, if you're looking for fun,
