How does my camper find lost items? 

Please mark all belongings with your camper's name. This is very important since shirts are identical and individual items are difficult to identify without a label. Lost & Found items are available each day at camp. 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. We cannot release campers without parental permission. 


When can I visit my camper? 

Camp Gan Israel is open for parental visits every camp day. We suggest that you schedule your visit carefully as your camper may be involved in a field trip or other off-campus activity. 


What if my child does not want to participate in a particular activity?

No camper is 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 Israel. We appreciate parental input and feedback on this matter


What does my camper need each day?

Campers should have a change of clothing, water bottle, sunhat, sunscreen, and gym shoes at camp at all times. A bathing suit and towel should be sent on swim days and water days. We supply all sports equipment. Counsellors will apply sunscreen upon request. 


Can my camper bring precious items to camp?

Campers should not bring jewelry, radios, expensive toys, etc. to camp. Camp Gan Israel supplies everything campers may need. 

How can I speak with my child's counsellor? 

A call to the camp office will answer most questions. Since counsellors are constantly supervising groups and activities, messages will be taken at the camp office. Please leave your name and evening phone number and the counsellor will return your call as soon as possible.
