Parent Handbook


Dress Code:

We require that all campers wear a Camp Gan Israel T-shirt on trip days. Each camper should purchase at least two T-shirts before camp begins. Since all camp staff and campers wear camp shirts, we are instantly recognizable to each other. While on field trips camp shirts distinguish our campers and staff from other visitors. Camp shirts, and caps will be available for purchase before the start of camp.

Personal Property

The Camp does not take responsibility for any personal items brought to camp.

ABSOLUTELY NO illegal substances or weapons of any kind will be allowed on camp grounds. Camp reserves the right to conduct searches when we feel necessary. 


The swimming pool is supervised at all times by certified lifeguards. When going on field trips, contact is maintained at all times with the camp office by means of mobile communication.

In case of a medical emergency, G‑d forbid, parents or guardians (listed on the registration form) will be contacted immediately.

Camper Release

Parents wishing to have their child released during camp to anyone other than themselves must make prior arrangements with the camp Director. Please note that no camper will be released to ANYONE without written permission.

Extended Care

Extended care hours are available. Please see here and here for details.
