About us

Our Mission

CKids Gan Israel is a premier Jewish overnight camp that provides the optimal environment for every camper to grow, thrive, and flourish for the rest of their lives. From the moment campers arrive, they are taken in by the infectious positive energy of the camp environment. Free from technology and external distractions and pressures, their days are filled with carefree exploration and discovery of both themselves and the world around them. There are endless opportunities to be found in the dozens of recreational activities that are offered throughout the summer for campers to develop new talents and strengthen their athletic abilities. Throughout the summer, campers foster positive social growth in a safe and nurturing environment while forging life-long Jewish friendships. At our core is the belief that every child is an entire world, and we strive to harness their infinite innate potential through unconditional love, support and personal attention. A Summer spent in Ckids Gan Israel ignites the spark of Judaism that resides within every single camper. The campers become more in tune with their Jewish identity and allow authentic Jewish pride to become the cornerstone of their lives. 

Our Founder

Camp Gan Israel was founded a half a century ago by the Lubavitcher Rebbe. It was established with the vision to create a safe, nurturing environment in which children would be enveloped in a positive atmosphere infused with a Jewish spirit.


Today, Gan Israel camps comprise the largest network of Jewish camps in the world. Each summer, more than 120,000 children attend branches throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Russia, Israel, South Africa, and Australia. 
 

This camp was established with the Rebbe’s inspiration and is guided by his revolutionary vision. We strive to give that unconditional love that the Rebbe showed to every Jew to every single child who walks into our camp. 

Our Staff

Our staff consists of extraordinary, competent and qualified individuals who

want to give back and make a difference. They were specifically selected for

their warmth, experience, positive energy, and love and knack for dealing with

children. They are trustworthy, responsible, and all of them are trained in CPR

and First Aid. Our low camper-to-staff ratio ensures that each child will have the

highest quality supervision along with caring and attentive guidance.
