CHILDREN WITH ALLERGIES:

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 or food restrictions, please let us knows.

ORIENTATION:

Every summer we have an orientation for Kiddie Camp Children and their parents. This year, the orientation will be held Sunday, June 28th from 4:00 to 5:00 PM. This is an opportunity for your child to get acquainted with their 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 orientation. This is the only orientation we will have, so all Kiddie campers are welcome, regardless of which weeks they will be attending.

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 CALENDAR:

TZEDAKAH:

We provide coins for the children to give tzedakah (money for charity) every day to develop a daily habit of sharing. This will help children associate money with giving and doing a good deed.

We ask that parents apply sunscreen before camp each day. Please send sunscreen 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 or restrictions,  please let us know.
