“When I was a child, I attended CGI in my hometown and I couldn’t wait for my children to experience the same fun, happy and Jewish memories. CGI Las Vegas has created a program that is filled with fun and a sense of Jewish pride. Every summer has its own theme with unique activities that cater to a range of ages. Their staff is the best of the best and my children truly miss their counselors throughout the year!”Ariella Metal

“Where do I begin to express how happy we are with Gan Israel Camp, that makes us return every year? The variety of the fun activities, the staff that is always full of life with infectious happiness, the full hours and the happy children coming home every day. One complaint is… why does summer have to end?”Rachel Tenenbaum
Every day at Camp Gan Israel is filled with diverse, exciting recreational activities such as sports, swimming, creative arts, Shabbat experiences, and much more.
In addition to a great on-campus experience, there are also regular trips to childrens’ favorite places. Our focus on good sportsmanship and self-confidence makes everyone a winner! We work hard to keep our campers constantly engaged in a fun, safe, and Jewish environment.
Our camp is divided into three divisions: Mini Gan, Main Division and Pioneers. Each division’s activities are catered to the needs, likes and abilities of its campers. This ensures that every camper has a fantastic experience every single day.
