Older Division

Our new camp site is located at Lubavitch on the Palisades, 11 Harold Street in Tenafly, NJ.



Whether your child loves baseball, basketball, soccer or hockey – we’ve got it all at Gan Israel. Supervised by our experienced instructors, campers develop confidence and sportsmanship along with athletic skill as they enjoy our extensive sports program.



Camp Gan Israel is extremely proud of its swimming program where all activities are supervised by certified Red Cross lifeguards. Swimming will be at the beautiful pool at the Tenakill Swim Club of Tenafly, just a few minutes walking distance from the Chabad House. Our schedule includes swimming every day besides trip days. Campers will have swim instruction at every swim session, they will be practicing to compete against each other with our very own CGI swim team.

Team Makers 

Team Makers’ Camp Adventures are simply AMAZING! Campers will love the variety of activities, challenges, games and more. As in all Team Makers experiences, teams will work and play together and -without even knowing it- learn what leadership, sportsmanship and team spirit are all about.
