Creative Hands / Crafts
Camp Gan Israel’s innovative arts and crafts teach the children to be creative and imaginative. The crafts incorporate various themes in Jewish life as well as fun and useful projects. Campers are sure to proudly look back at the craft of their own hands well after the summer is over.

Play ball! 
Children develop sportsmanship, confidence, and the ability to enjoy all sports, including baseball, basketball, football, kickball, creative movement, and more.

CGI on the Go Fieldtrips
Gan Israel holds regular "trip days" which include theme parks, Fruit and vegetable picking and more. These exciting adventures allow our children to really show their true CGI spirit.
