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!

So what I'm trying to say 

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, 

Come to Gan Izzy and we'll show you how it's done!

“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.”
