Must campers wear a camp T-shirt every day?
No, we require that all campers wear a camp T-shirt on Tuesday's and Thursday's which are our trip days. Since all camp staff and campers wear camp shirts, we are instantly recognizable to each other. 

How does my camper find a lost item?
Please mark all belongings with your camper's name. This is very important since individual items are difficult to identify without a label. Lost & Found items are available each day in the office. Please contact us in writing or by phone regarding specific items.

How do I arrange to pick up my camper during the camp day?
If you have to pick up your camper during the day, please notify our office. Once we are aware of your arrival time, we can arrange to have your camper ready for you. 

What if my child does not want to participate in a particular activity?
No camper will be forced to participate in any activity. However, we do urge campers to try all activities and take advantage of the complete program offered at Camp Gan Izzy. 

What does my camper need to bring each day?
Campers only need a bathing suit and towel each day, regardless of the weather. They also should bring a labeled water bottle in their bag.  Please apply sunscreen at home.

How often does my child drink water at camp each day?

 It is the campers responsibility to bring a bottle each day filled with water. They will be encouraged to drink every hour. Bottles will be refilled as needed throughout the day.

How can I speak with my child's counselor?
A call to the camp office will answer most questions. Since counselors are constantly supervising groups and activities, messages will be taken at the camp office. Please leave your name and evening phone number and the counselor will return your call as soon as possible.

How can I speak with a Camp Director?
The directors are available to answer your questions and discuss your concerns, during the day at the Camp Officel. Please feel free to call during these times or leave a message at the camp office during the camp day.

Are we obligated to give a tip or gift to our child's counselor?
Tips or gifts are appreciated. If you wish to do so, here is a general guideline: $20-$25 for a junior counselor and $30-$40 for a counselor.
