Camp Gan Israel's traditions mean a great deal to all of us. Their importance is evident in the excitement and anticipation that our campers experience. They provide a way for everyone in our community to feel they are a part of Camp Gan Israel. We have found that our traditions become meaningful memories.

Izzy the Mascot, CGI Carnival, Wacky Water Day, Gan Izzy Players Performance, Color War, Weekly Theme Days, The Challah Fairy, The Gan Izzy Theme Song, Donuts with Dads, Dr Schnitzel, Friday Night Family Shabbat Experience, and Camp Shows are traditions that campers look forward to year after year.
