Gan Israel Divisions

1812.JPGCampers at Gan Israel are divided into age groups for individualized attention and supervision. This also allows us to gear each trip for the appropriate age group. An average group consists of 8 to 12 campers who work together as a team, learning the value of friendship and unity.

 

THERE ARE THREE DIVISIONS IN CAMP:

Kochavim - Division: for children entering grades K-5. The two groups in this division participate in a variety of activities, sports, trips, art, Judaic studies, drama and much more. Some activities include all three groups, others are geared for specific ages within the division.

Sabra - Division: for children entering grades 6-8. This group has its own activities and trips, in addition to those offered to the rest of camp. Such trips include go-karts, Shabbaton sleep over, late night programs, Ultra-zone, and King's Dominion.

Pioneer - Bat Mitzvah Girls CIT Division: The CIT, or Counselor in Training group, has its own activities and trips, in addition to those offered to the rest of camp and even more than the Sabra Division. Such trips include go-karts, Shabbaton sleep over, late night programs, Ultra-zone, and King's Dominion. The uniqueness of this program is that it includes working with counselors and younger children, giving them the opportunity to learn important counselor skills, the girls will also have a special late night with all the counselors. The CIT's are under the guidance of the camp staff with their own program coordinator / counselor.
