Campers at CGI are divided by age, from 3 - to 13-years-old, to maximize individualized attention and supervision. Under the guidance of dedicated counselors, the children of each group work together as a team and learn the value of friendship and camaraderie.

"Summer is a critical time in a child's life," said Chana Greene, director of the CGI camp. " A successful summer camp experience is more than a break from studies to let loose. Every activity is a major learning experience. Our program is designed to let our camper's minds freely explore nature, indulge in craft projects, enjoy sports and water activities, all while building character and responsibility in a relaxed, fun atmosphere."

With its new location, campers will be able to enjoy all of the facility features including: the YMCA's indoor gym, multipurpose room, indoor pool, baseball diamond, soccer fields, and playground. Several outdoor tents will be set upset up exclusively for each group and a larger tent for all group activities. There will also be Arts n' Craft tents and other specialty areas.

"Sending our kids to Camp Gan Israel was the best decision we made for them,” said Brad and Leigh Currie of Flemington. “They were actively engaged each week with field trips, swimming, tennis, Zumba, self-defense classes, arts and crafts, and cooking. They always came home saying their day was, 'Awesome!' Camp counselors were wonderful and made sure each child was well taken care of during the camp day."

Summer 2017 will feature a fun filled schedule with exciting trips such as: Bounce U, Turtle Back Zoo, Ice Skating, Rope Coursing, Dutch Springs, Amusement Parks, and more. Some daily activities include: sports activities with professional coaches, culinary arts, pottery painting, comedy skits, talent shows, and carnival days. These programs challenge children to develop their innate talents. Exciting activities, stories, thematic games, contests and Friday Shabbat parties are all part of the unique Camp Gan Israel experience. CGI innovative arts and crafts counselors teach the children to be creative and imaginative.
