Younger Division

Creative Hands / Crafts
Camp Gan Israel’s innovative arts and crafts program incorporates various themes in Jewish life as well as fun and useful projects. Each week is a different theme in the Younger Division and art projects are incorporated into those themes.  Campers proudly look back at the craft of their own hands well after the summer is over.  Many of the beautiful artwork fills our hallways so please come check them out throughout the summer! 

The Younger Division hires a professional Sports Director to run a very specialized sports program each day geared to younger children.  The children eagerly anticipate what each day brings—new sports games and activities with so much fun and enthusiasm!

Swimming & Water Slides 
For our campers, splash pads and water slides are provided at our camp location for cooling off each day. For Pre-K and K, campers are bused to a local swim club where instructional swim is provided 2-3 times a week.  The swim club has two beautiful pools where the children get to splash, cool off and learn the fundamentals of swimming.

In addition, professional artists, movement and music teachers, little chefs and yoga provide special instruction in these areas on a weekly basis as well.  There is not a minute that is left unfilled in Camp Gan Israel!
