Our Staff


Child development is the most significant ingredient in a healthy camp experience. This is why our staff is the real secret to our success. Our experienced counselors are known for their personal warmth and ability to care for each child as an individual. Many staff members return year after year, lending experience and continuity to all programs. Each counselor is a role model for our children, promising them friendship that will last forever! Their love for the children is surpassed only by the children’s love for them.

We take great pride in our commitment to recruiting, training and keeping the highest quality staff in the camping profession. Over the years, Gan Israel Day Camps has always been dedicated to small groups with exceptional staff supervision. This ensures the best possible care, instruction and supervision for our campers. Our counselors are highly trained, dedicated, and experienced.
