Must campers wear a camp T-shirt every day?
Campers must wear a Camp Gan Israel T-shirt on trip days. Each camper should purchase at least one 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. While at camp, it allows our staff to recognize any visiting children, parents, etc. Camp shirts, will be available for purchase before the start of camp.

How does my camper find a lost item?
Please mark all belongings with your camper's name and group. This is very important since shirts, backpacks, etc. are identical and individual items are difficult to identify without a label. Lost & Found items are available each day in the office. Please contact us in writing or by phone regarding specific items.

How does the transportation system work?
Camp Gan Israel uses a modern fleet of mini-buses and buses from the Montri Bus Company. Campers must remain seated at all times. Seat belts are provided and their use is mandatory at all times.

How do I arrange to pick up my camper during the camp day?
If you have to pick up your camper during the day, please notify our office. Once we are aware of your arrival time, we can arrange to have your camper ready for you. Please note that no camper will be released to ANYONE without written permission.

When can I visit my camper?
Camp Gan Israel is open for parental visits every camp day. We suggest that you schedule your visit carefully as your camper may be involved in a field trip or other off-campus activity. 

What if my child does not want to participate in a particular activity?
No camper will be forced to participate in any activity. However, we do urge campers to try all activities and take advantage of the complete program offered at Camp Gan Israel. 

How religious is Camp Gan Israel?
CGI is a totally non-judgemental environment made up of campers from all Jewish backgrounds. An individual's level of observance is not stressed. All children enjoy a shared Jewish spirit through songs and projects.

Can my camper bring a precious item to camp?
We do not permit your camper to bring jewelry, radios, expensive toys, etc. to camp. Camp Gan Israel supplies everything campers may need.

What does my camper need to bring each day?
Campers only need a bathing suit and towel each day, regardless of the weather. We suggest that campers keep a change of clothing in camp.  We supply all sports and safety equipment such as tennis racquets, baseball mitts, riding helmets, etc. Please apply sunscreen at home.

How often does my child drink water at camp each day?
Every camper will be provided with a water at all times and a water bottle on trips. It is advisable to send a water bottle with your child on trip days.

How can I speak with my child's counselor?
A call to the camp office will answer most questions. Since counselors are constantly supervising groups and activities, messages will be taken at the camp office. Please leave your name and evening phone number and the counselor will return your call as soon as possible.

How can I speak with a Camp Director?
The director is available to answer your questions and discuss your concerns at 081 822 9541.
