CARPOOL INFO
Camp begins every morning at 9:00am and ends at 3:30pm. Morning carpool is from 8:50 – 9:10 am and afternoon pickup begins at 3:25pm and ends at 3:45pm. The carpool lane is at the end of the parking lot, on the left side of the building for pick up. If your child(ren) only stay half a day, please park and come inside to pick them up between 12:50 and 1:00pm.

If you arrive after 9:15am, please park and walk with your child into their classroom.

CHILDREN WITH ALLERGIES
Our camp is peanut free all summer due to a few severe peanut allergies amongst our campers. If your child eats anything with peanuts or peanut butter in the morning before camp, please be sure his/her hands are washed with soap before coming to camp. If your child has a severe food allergy, please contact us.

OPEN HOUSE
Every summer we have an open house for the Kiddie Camp children and their parents the Sunday before camp begins. This year, open house will be Sunday, June 25 from 4:00-5:00 PM. This is an opportunity for your child to get acquainted with their new camp as well as meet their teacher/counselor. If your child has any allergies, please be sure to discuss it with his/her teacher at the open house. This is the only open house we have, so all Kiddie campers are welcome, regardless of which weeks they will be coming.

PRE-CARE AND AFTER CARE
Pre-care begins at 8:00am. We ask that parents drive to the back of the building and walk their child into the first classroom, where an adult will be waiting.
After care is from 3:30-5:30 pm. Parents are asked to pull to the back of the building and walk in to pick up their child.
Pre-care and after care are available by the week only.

WHAT TO SEND TO CAMP ON YOUR CHILD’S FIRST DAY
Please bring to the open house (or on your child’s first day):

  • A picture of your child.
  • A change of clothing that we will return on your child's last day of camp. The clothing should be placed in a large Ziploc bag with your child’s name marked clearly on it.
  • A kiddie mat for resting
  • Diapers and wipes (for untrained children only)

WHAT TO SEND TO CAMP EVERY DAY

  • Please send a bag every day with a bathing suit, towel, sunscreen, and water shoes with your child’s name on them.
  • Please apply sunscreen before camp and we will re-apply as necessary.

CAMP T-SHIRTS
Your child will receive a camp t-shirt on his/her first day.

CELEBRATING YOUR CHILD’S BIRTHDAY AT CAMP
We would love to facilitate your child’s birthday celebration at camp. In order to do so, please contact us a week in advance and let us know which day you would like the celebration to be. We will get back to you with the best time, as well as the number of children in your child’s bunk. We ask that you order your child’s cake/cupcakes from Ali’s Cookies (770.971.8566) on Johnson Ferry Road and request that the item is Parve (non-dairy).

CHILDREN WHO MISS A DAY OF CAMP
If your child is sick and unable to come to camp, we would appreciate a phone call or email to let us know. Unfortunately we cannot offer make up days during another week.

CAMP CALENDER
Every day will feature another exciting activity, please click here to view the Kiddie Camp calendar

Tzedakah: We encourage the children to bring tzedakah (money for charity) every day. A penny or two is fine. The point is to develop a daily habit of sharing. It also helps children associate money with giving and doing a good deed.

Sunscreen: We ask that parents apply sunscreen before camp each day. You may send additional sunscreen along for your child if they remain in camp for the full day program and their counselor will reapply as necessary.

Lunch Program: Camp Gan Israel provides a delicious hot lunch for all the campers. We ask that parents do not send in any food due to Kosher policies at our camp. If your child has any food allergies please let us know.

Photo Album: Each day pictures of the activities will be available on our website, www.cgicobb.org and on our Facebook page for you to enjoy.
