We want campers to feel comfortable on their first day at Camp Gan Israel. There is a scheduled orientation for all campers and families on the Sunday before the first day of camp. Exact time slots for each age group will be announced.

What to Expect at orientation:


Come along with your child to meet your child’s teachers & friends. Additionally, you and your child will familiarize yourselves with the bunkroom and camp facility. Special activities and treats await your children! We look forward to greeting you in person!

The nurse will be on site to discuss allergies/medical issues and will collect epipens and medications,
if needed.


Aquatic Director, Sports coaches, Camp Nurse, and Directors will all be available for a meet and greet and to outline the goals for the summer. Campers will meet with their counselors and bunk mates, for a theme break out activity and to acquaint with each other. Camp t-shirts and water bottles will be distributed, along with some special surprises, Gan Izzy Style!
