We require that all campers wear a Camp Gan Israel T-shirt on trips days. Each camper will be provided with a camp T-shirt as part of the registration fee,Since all camp staff and campers wear camp shirts, we are instantly recognizable to each other. While on field trips camp shirts distinguish our campers and staff from other visitors.
Please mark all belongings with your camper’s name. This is very important since shirts, backpacks, etc. are identical and individual items are difficult to identify without a label. Lost & Found items are available each day after camp. Please contact us in writing or by phone regarding specific items.
If you have to pick up your camper during the day, please notify Rabbi Sholom at347-784-7027. Once we are aware of your arrival time, we can arrange to have your child ready for you.
No camper will be forced to participate in any activity. However, we do urge campers to try all activities and take advantage of the complete program offered at Camp Gan Izzy.

CGI is a totally non-judgmental environment made up of campers from all Jewish backgrounds. An individual’s level of observance is not stressed. All children enjoy a shared Jewish spirit through songs and projects.

Campers should bring lunch and two snacks. (Please send only dairy or pareve lunches, no glass please) Water is provided to the campers. We strongly suggest that parents send their children in closed tow sneakers for their own safety. Campers only need a bathing suit and towel on swimming days.
Drinking water is always available and given to the campers throughout the day.
A call to the camp office will answer most questions. Since counselors are constantly supervising groups and activities, messages will be taken at the camp office. Please leave your name and evening phone number and the counselor will return your call as soon as possible.
The directors is available to answer your questions and discuss your concerns, during the day at the Camp Office and most evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. by calling 347-784-7027. Please feel free to call during these times or leave a message at the camp office during the camp day. Alternatively, you can email the directors at Rabbisholom@jewishmc.com and Liba@jewishmc.com.
