Grand Gan campers have weekly specials in addition to the daily workshops and electives. In focusing on one specialty each week, they learn new skills and work towards a goal unique to each week.

A late night and 1-2 overnight trips are offered for this division. Many of our campers have had their first successful sleepover, or taste of sleepaway camp, at our day camp, and it is a highlight for many. It is optional and stay on grounds activities are offered for those not ready to participate. Club Getaway, a Gan Izzy favorite, is located in Kent, CT and is filled with engaging adventures, bountiful food, rustic cabins, shows, lakefront activities and more. 

In this division, the Theatre program is a huge highlight. Those campers that elect to participate, will all have fulfilling parts in the theatre production and will perform on stage at an arts center such as The Quick Center for Performing Arts or the Ridgefield Playhouse. Those that elect to participate in the sports option, will partake in sports clinics, games and competitions.
