Camp Gan Israel

Camp Gan Israel, located at the beautiful, spacious Barnard Magnet School in New Haven, is a summer camp dedicated to enriching the lives of children from diverse Jewish backgrounds and affiliations through a stimulating camping experience. As an ACA-accredited camp, our focus on child safety and program quality is exceptional. CGI of Greater New Haven is part of the largest and fastest growing network of day camps, enjoying a reputation as a pioneer in Jewish camping, with innovative ideas and creative activities. Our program provides enjoyment and inspires children to try new things in a comfortable and caring atmosphere. Our goal is to help increase our campers’ self esteem by helping them develop different skills and encouraging the Jewish values of kindness, caring, and charity. Campers meet new friends and learn about their heritage in a fun, exciting manner.
