Every staff member has read their campers health form, and is familiar with the information.

Activities

Our day is full of innovative and exciting activities. Camp Gan Izzy brings in a multitude of talented guest instructors each week to ensure your child has the most fun possible! Each week includes a detailed schedule about the fun activities that are planned! One or two days of every session is a dress up day. Please dress your child accordingly if he or she wants to participate. We encourage all campers to show their Gan Izzy spirit!

Jewish Themes

Each day of camp will have a unique Jewish theme that the whole camp will learn about. The activities that the kids do will reflect the themes that they are learning. Examples of themes are loving your fellow as you love yourself, honoring your mother and father, the Jewish holidays, Shabbat and more! So not only will the kids have a great time in camp, but they will learn a tremendous amount about their heritage as well!

Lunch

Delicious Kosher lunches are provided daily. The lunch schedule is sent home on the weekly camp schedule. In addition to our daily lunch menu, we will also have sandwiches available. PLEASE DO NOT BRING FOOD FROM HOME.

Snacks

We will provide the campers with snack on camp grounds, and on trips.

Daily Sunscreen

As a safety precaution, sunscreen should be applied before coming to camp. Camper are encouraged to wear caps outdoor.

Personal Belongings

Clearly label all of your child’s belongings. Gan Izzy will not be held responsible for missing items. Our lost & found will return all marked items on a daily basis.

Do NOT send expensive toys to camp. Cell phones, iPods & electronic games MAY NOT be brought to camp. They are easily lost or damaged and they distract the kids from participating in camp activities.

Tzeddakah

Charity is collected every day. Please encourage your child to bring a penny a day.
