Dylan had such a fun experience! He loved his morehs. Every day he came out smiling. At first, I was nervous for him to go on trips but he was in very capable hands. Everyone was very patient and helped with all of my needs. 

We only have nothing but good things to say about Camp Gan Israel. Aislyn had such a great time and looked forward to going each day. We loved the music each morning and afternoon as you entered and exited. It made walking into camp so exciting, welcoming and energizing. The counselors were warm and friendly. The activities were fun. Most notably, we really appreciated the Covid-policy and flexibility to make up the missed days. Also, the option to extend her time by being able to purchase an additional week. We also appreciate that the parking space lines were repainted. We do have a suggestion to paint one-way arrows on the ground to keep the flow of traffic one way only. Also, the parking lot monitor was great and friendly.

Aislyn has some words to share too: “I had so much fun it made me tired and sleepy (in other words, it wore her out lol). I love my camp. I love to play with toys. I liked the drums and bongos. I like the bus that came with gymnastics and the water slide. I liked everything.”

Thank you for an amazing and fun-filled summer. Looking forward to next year!!

 “My daughter who is 8 had an absolute blast this was her favorite camp ever, is what she said. She had learned how to daven, say brachos and about shabat. I loved watching my daughter embrace being Jewish, and so proud. It made my heart sing to see her embracing our religion. My son who was 3 at the time learned to say shima and the brachos almost by himself. I would like to thank you so much for giving my kids this opportunity for a fun learning summer.”

“We are VERY happy with the camp.  I feel great that there was no judgement on how observant we are.  Our daughter is so happy, wants to be a counselor when she’s old enough.  She loves it & can’t wait until next summer!”

“I would be missing so much without Camp GI.  Rachel is just so happy when she’s spent the day at camp.  I feel so comfortable and trusting of the staff.  They are truly like big sisters to Rachel.  They are great role models.  I hope she grows up to be just like her counselors.”
