“No one puts more care into the care of your child”
Gan Israel is much more than a physical break from the school routine and winter activities. It’s a comprehensive program designed to strengthen the body and soul. It provides your child with a rich and wholesome summer vacation of fun and excitement along with friendship and meaningful educational experiences.

Child development is the most significant ingredient in a healthy camp experience. This is why our staff is the real secret to our success. Our experienced counsellors (Madrichim/Madrichot) are known for their personal warmth and ability to care for each child as an individual. Many staff members return year after year, lending experience and continuity to all programs. Each counsellor is a role model for our children, promising them memories which will last forever! Their love for the children is surpassed only by the children’s love for them.
